Serbia sent contingent of peacekeepers to Cyprus

33
A solemn ceremony of sending a peacekeeping contingent to Cyprus as part of the UNFICYP mission took place in the Prince Mikhailovsky (Niš) barracks. The commander of the land forces of Serbia, Lieutenant-Colonel General Milosav Simovic, presented the state flag to the peacekeepers and delivered a parting speech.


Serbia has been involved in UNFICYP since 2011. From this point on, the Serbian military departed for Cyprus nine times. In the blue helmets, the country is represented by one officer at the headquarters of the mission, two military observers, six officers of the patrol and 37 soldiers of an infantry platoon who operate as part of the Hungarian-Slovak peacekeeping team.

Below is a photo from the military sending ceremony.

      But I took it differently, the Orthodox Serbs went to cover the Greeks from the Turks ... However, it will be useful, of course, support is more likely moral, but still.

        It was also a thought. But still, it is NATO. And indeed, an axumor, NATO countries protect Cyprus from a NATO country with the help of a non-NATO country, and even one that was trampled into the mud not so long ago.
        Theater of the absurd ...

          What everyone began to think in terms of cartographic geopolitics. And if it’s just humanly: Orthodox Serbs are standing on the border between Orthodox Greeks and Muslim Turks so that a long-running conflict does not flare up between them (NATO members or non-NATO members are already the twelfth case - everything is decided at the UN level)

        Serbia sends its contingent to Cyprus. without any connection with NATO or protection of those from those or within its relation to the conflict.
        Ordinary rotation within the UN (UN!)
        a huge number of countries send their contingents.
        The UN pays for it. The UN sets goals, Serbia does not have any military influence on its contingent, as it is fully subordinate to and under the jurisdiction of the UN.
        In Cyprus (by the way, 0 is a great place to serve. From the point of view of military danger - quiet and smooth.
        I saw their posts in Cyprus. as well as UN holidaymakers.
        Although on the Greek side in hotels. even in Turkish casino.
        Dudes go to the resort. with a salary of 1500 euros a month or more.
        You can envy.

        Your words are consonant with such a decision of the Serbs:
        The EU called on countries to consider introducing new anti-Russian sanctions over Crimea. In response, the Serbian authorities said they were not going to impose restrictions against Moscow. This was stated by the representative of the Serbian mission to the UN. "The President, Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Serbia have repeated many times that Serbia will never join the sanctions against the Russian Federation," said Advisor to the Permanent Representative Ana Ilic.

              I have been living and working in Cyprus for a long time. My question is: what are peacekeepers doing here? Kebab? Local people go to military training camps like a rascal from family - that's a fact!

                I note that there has been peace and grace on the border with Turkish territory since the late 90s ... I have never seen refugees here, and any crime more serious than pickpocketing becomes the central news of newspapers, they are so rare.

        This is my personal opinion and it’s not for you to tell me here what is so and what is not. And the Serbs are not our allies, they are allies only when they are thoroughly tied up and they remember the Slavic brothers right away, they say, help ... And when the Russians ask them not only to help - to support at least in some matters - they’re in the ass stuffing ...

      wassat Bravo. And at the same time, all the Turks in Cyprus are under the knife, aren't they? Or does someone think the Greeks are white and fluffy? They cut themselves with rapture for almost the entire past century (twentieth).
      The status quo. And - blood does not flow. Does not flow - rivers. IMHO.

          It turns out that yes. By the way, jokes at the expense of the flag have long been no longer funny. Arbitrarily change. But Romania is also Orthodox. wassat
          Alexander, imagine, suddenly .... Your flag will change to the flag of the DPRK ?! Well, then a terrible thing happened - the hamster is an eater, and yes, and something will be allowed ?! Presented?
          It became scary, well, it’s unlikely laughing hi

                I also have a systematic flag of Moldova for Alexander. I’m even afraid to guess which flag I’ll see if I travel from Perm Krai to Ekat on a business trip, probably belay?

          Well, you know better from Romania.

          Hi, Sanya, actually he’s right.
          The background to the conflict is generally the following.
          3 countries were guarantors of the creation of the state of Cyprus (Greece, Turkey, England) - and the peaceful coexistence of two communities, Turkish and Greek (their constitution was imprisoned for this)
          Then, if you recall the power in Greece came - the black colonels, who began to heat up the nationalistic sentiment of the Greeks against the Turks (in Cyprus) in their desire to create Greater Greece, as a result, this resulted in the massacre of the Turks, their deportation and eviction.
          In accordance with the status of the guarantor country, Turkey introduced its contingent and stopped the massacre.
          The result - black colonels have long been gone, Cyprus - divided, Turks and Greeks (Cypriots) - constantly accuse each other of occupation (maybe Turkish troops are on the Turkish side, Greek are on the Greek side (it’s strange that nobody writes about this , by the way, and the fact that the Greeks are Cypriots serving in the Greek army), the islands are ruined, the economy is in the pope, the Greeks are parasites, sheer corruption and nepotism, while the Greeks are squeezing the former Turkish property, that the Turks are Greek.
          By the way, who benefits from this situation - England, which has there 2 (or 3 bases 0, for which it does not pay a spear (maybe, we don’t know who to pay, to the Greeks or Turks) --- in general, the Greeks are a little more smeared here Turks shopping mall they started this whole booth.
          Well, the UN forces calmly stand on the line of separation, get paid and enjoy life.

    I am more interested in the issue of deploying a Russian military base in Cyprus, the construction of which in 2015 was discussed by the Russian media. What about the Serbs? I saw nothing wrong with them ... request I rarely see them in Siberia ... laughing
