Ukraine sent a new military contingent to Africa

67

The ground forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have allocated 250 people to be sent to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.


They are servicemen of a helicopter detachment performing peacekeeping functions as part of the UN Mission in this African country.

This message appeared on the official Facebook page of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

250 Ukrainian peacekeepers will carry out tasks in the African country to maintain peace and security.

- said in a statement.

The servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been in the Congo since 2000, and the next group is sent as part of the rotation of personnel. This time, it is taking place under the conditions of strict adherence to precautions to prevent infection with coronavirus infection. Before leaving, the contingent underwent observation for two weeks and received international certificates.

The 18th hotel helicopter squadron, whose military personnel participate in the rotation, has been operating as part of the UN forces in the DR Congo since 2012. The situation in this country is extremely difficult due to the many years of civil war. The Ukrainian contingent has been tasked with escorting UN helicopters, on alert duty at airfields, transporting goods, observation and reconnaissance. In addition, the Ukrainian Armed Forces performs search and rescue operations in the Congo.

      And in the evening camouflaged carts with oxen drove into the camp with songs and screeching. This is the Ukrainian chemical protection battalion arrived to fight. They look very beautiful against the background of the desert in their forest camouflage. All are wearing green camouflage suits, branches from trees on their heads, some have hemp ... They say this is from the officers so that they can be distinguished during the bombings.

          Georgia, too, once sent its soldiers to Iraq, hoping that later it would be helped against Russia. But the Western owners did not intercede for the Georgians in 2008.

          And the Western masters will not fight for the Ukrainians either; let at least how many monkeys in the Congo be killed by unalloyed hands.

            There are 1171 peacekeepers from 57 countries in the Congo: 1589 contingents, military observers - 180, formed police units - 884, individual police officers - 226, headquarters officers - 292.
            The mission has 11 aircraft, 30 helicopters, and drones. At the end of April 2020, the Russian Federation sent 13 peacekeepers to Congo: military observers - 7 (including one woman), police - 3, headquarters officers - 3. As of April 31, 2020, 186 peacekeepers were killed in the mission.

                Trump suddenly dispatched American troops to Central Africa. Ground forces and combat aircraft are sent to Gabon to protect American citizens in another African country, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Why is America so concerned about the situation in these states and why are they so important to Washington?
                At the same time, if the situation with the democratic processes in the DRC is really ambiguous, then what is the threat to the security of American citizens and diplomatic missions in the country remains a mystery.
                DR Congo is very important in terms of its mineral resources, which are necessary for modern American technology. Thus, the DRC accounts for 80% of all world coltan reserves, from which tantalum is mined. Not to mention other riches - silver, gold, diamonds, cobalt, molybdenum. Do not forget also that the first American nuclear bombs were created on the basis of uranium, which they received from the territory of present-day Gabon and the DRC,
                So your wishes for intervention in the Congo have already been taken into account.
                If it were not for the resources of the Congo, the "world community" and the UN would be purple how things are with democracy.
                Well, the UN mission is not intended for conducting hostilities, there is no such mandate.

      I think they pay - because to operate and refuel helicopters themselves, the salary for flight personnel - Ukraine does not "pull" - as far as I remember Ukrainian pilots have been in Africa for a long time under the UN flag.

      The UN does not have its own military and police forces, and the military and police personnel required for each operation are provided by member states at the request of the organization. Peacekeepers wear the military uniform of their countries; their distinctive signs - a blue helmet (beret) and an identification badge - testify to their belonging to the UN peacekeeping contingent. As of January 31, 2015, 122 countries contribute military and police contingents to the UN.
      Peacekeeping missions in Africa are very expensive, with three missions having an annual budget of over $ 3 billion. The money is allocated and distributed by the UN General Assembly: Congo - 1 141 848 100 (dollars), South Sudan - 1, Mali - 071.
      At the end of August 2019, Russian peacekeepers were in five of the seven African UN peacekeeping missions: Western Sahara, CAR, Congo, South Sudan and the Abyei enclave.
      Information about the sending of peacekeepers from the five permanent members of the Security Council looks like this: China - 2151, France - 741, Great Britain - 571, Russia - 71, USA - 35.

      Let's compare these figures with the data of the three countries that sent the largest number of peacekeepers: Ethiopia - 7052, Bangladesh - 6411, India - 6173. The data are presented at the end of August 2019.

      Into five African peacekeeping missions China dispatches the following personnel:

      South Sudan - 1052, Mali - 421, Darfur - 6, Congo - 232, Western Sahara - 12.
      The Congo mission is one of the largest, most dangerous, and expensive. The UN forces in the Congo rank first in terms of the number of personnel, they include 16 peacekeepers from 741 countries (military personnel - 56, military observers - 15, formed police unit - 292, individual police officers - 241, headquarters officers - 1040.

      Losses of the mission - 176 people. The mission has an operational intervention team.

      Russia sent 13 peacekeepers to Congo: military observers - six (including one woman), police officers - five (including two women), headquarters officers - two.
      Force Commander (MONUSCO), Lieutenant General Elias Rodrigis Martins Filho (Brazil), was appointed in April 2018. hi

    I don’t know how now, I used to have 7 injections before going to Africa.
    4 at once, 3 with a period. It was not possible to sit on half of the ass for a week.
    Yes, the payment was good, but the risk was also great - the monkey stole the smoked bacon and ate it on a palm tree, in the morning we looked closely, and this is Kharchenko on a palm tree and asks him to take it off.
    They teased for a long time about cohabitation with monkeys.

    Fuck this Ukraine, they are not Russian, they are traitors. I understand everything, the administrative resource - the one who seized the capital is the one who rules ... But to declare the bander as your hero? .. Of course, I am sitting in my Krasnoyarsk and it seems to me that everything is so simple. I know, not easy, but something needs to be done about it. That is why my son is there. I tried it myself, but I'm old.

    On one ukroresurse today I read the statements of Svidomo about the situation in N. Karabakh. It turns out, and here they drag Russia. Moreover, in such a way that this is another reason for the Russians to defend the "Russian world". I wonder what the Svidomo experts think about the peacekeepers in the Congo?
