The Ministry of Labor of the Russian Federation has reduced the list of occupations prohibited for women. From 2021, they will be able to work as subway machinists, truck drivers, car mechanics, and even sailors.

As the RBC, the list has been reduced from 456 prohibited work to 98. Still women can not perform most of the work in the chemical industry. The production of mercury, phosphorus, chlorine and other compounds may affect the reproductive health of future mothers.

Under the ban will remain open mining, as well as participation in the construction of subways, tunnels and underground structures. But now women can serve on ships as boatswains, skippers and sailors.

If desired, they can learn from the tractor driver-driver of agricultural production. Also, the representatives of the weaker sex will be able to drive vehicles with a carrying capacity exceeding 2,5 tons.
