Army Girls is another example of Bratkov's more documentary photo series. All pictures were taken at the nuclear department of Ukranian Military Academy, in the girl's section.

They exude a strange air of nostalgia and melancholy, which makes all the more sense considering that Ukraine hasn't had a nuclear program since the fall of the Soviet Union.
