In Soviet Union it was tradition to invite WWII veterans to school to tell children their stories (usually once a year (usually on Sep, 1 - first day of new school year, so called "Lesson of peace"). One time, when i was probably in 7th grade, our storyteller was old lady, former tanker. She told us few stories about tank battles and tanker heroes - and left, walked out, Our teacher (also old lady, but younger then storyteller) left with her for some time - then came back, closed the door and said "Children, have you noticed she have no legs?"

The first all-female crew of a Black Sea Fleet P-834 type patrol boat.
They are a pilot crew, if succeed then more all-female crews will be raised.

Is Russia preparing for a war on a scale males will not be enough to fill the ranks in the not so distant future?

No, it is just Rus Navy taking part in PR games - see AF doing the same.

Iconic photo from a SCW and a woman from a photo IIRC.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marina_Ginest%C3%A0

https://rarehistoricalphotos.com/marina-ginesta-1936/

"Marina did not knew about the photo until 2006, although the iconic image was printed and circulated everywhere, serving as cover for the book “Thirteen Red Roses” by Carlos Fonseca, and was also along with dozens of other photographs in the book “Unpublished images of the Civil War” (2002). She was identified by Garcia Bilbao who read the memoirs of Soviet correspondent of Pravda Mikhail Koltsov, with whom the young girl appears in another photo. Garcia Bilbao found that Jinesta Marina, with J, which was identified by Guzman in the caption was actually Marina Ginesta, an exile who lived in Paris translating French texts. Marina Ginesta, the iconic girl of the Spanish Civil War, died January 6, 2014 in Paris, aged 94."

Leadership: The Politics of Women In Combat

Quote

The various services opened up some infantry training programs to women and discovered two things. First, over 90 percent of women did not want to serve in any combat unit, especially the infantry. Those women who did, the majority of them officers, and went through infantry training discovered what female athletes and epidemiologists (doctors who study medical statistics) have long known; women are ten times more likely (than men) to suffer bone injuries and nearly as likely to suffer muscular injuries while engaged in stressful activities like basketball or infantry operations. Mental stress is another issue and most women who volunteered to try infantry training dropped out within days because of the combination of mental and physical stress.
