The movie has two minor named female characters Svetlana Stalin and Maria Yudina who do not talk to each other.
There are three other named women who appear in one scene each and do not interact with any others

I agree with the rating - albeit sadly because it's clearly a nuanced film in many other respects. My main issue was the scene where Svetlana gets the snap-out-of-it-you're-being-hysterical treatment. This is a trope that just felt gratuitous and did not feel like it was done to show a flawed character. Also, I do get that it would be a largely male-centric film by design but there were certainly many important women around too in that time period.
