The UN will explore the possibility of conducting a mine clearance operation in Syria


Markayu noted that "one of the main problems for Syria at the moment is earth mines, unexploded shells and cluster munitions, as well as improvised explosive devices from DAISH (IG)."

“We are not yet present in Damascus, because the government has not given us access. We expect to establish a presence in Damascus, ”she told reporters.

According to Marca, “UNMAS experts get the necessary information, as they are very closely connected with the humanitarian community working in Syria.”

The director assured that the service she headed was “ready to assist in mine clearance of the city of Palmyra”. “Whether it will be in the form of technical advice and support, we have made it clear that we are ready,” she added.

Meanwhile, according to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, over the past 4 hours, Russian sappers have cleared XNUMX ha in historical parts of Palmyra.

    While the UN is studying, Russia will clear mine without noise and advertising.
    More and more often I come to the opinion that the UN is turning into an empty talking shop, where the Americans are "running the show." In the case when it is beneficial for them, they support or block the UN Security Council resolutions, and often openly spit on all resolutions and do what they want. There are many examples of this.

        The UN can only reason and will sway for a long time, coordinate and analyze, and there you look already everything by itself someone did, is it needed at all?

        It is necessary to catch those who mined and make mine clear, so it will be fair. angry

        Well, if you are ready, well done, well, only Russia is already working hard in Palmyra, and not with the tryndit language in the form of advice.

      And why the hell did they have access to pressure when Putin and Assad without the UN Supreme Armed Forces amicably agreed. So that they carry out symbolic actions on mine clearance? The UN loves this.

      UN considers demining Syrian territory

      Note - what a slippery non-binding term, they damn consider the possibility ...
      Those. maybe they will help or maybe they won't ...
      Only Russia carries humanitarian aid, Russia will beat terrorists again, and they will coordinate, adopt resolutions, consider the possibility, and so they will pull the tires for a year or two or maybe twenty, in the end, when we are all done, the Americans will come from the UN, spin, drink their Coca-Cola, and they will declare to the whole world that they (the Americans) have cleared everything and at the same time saved everyone from the terrible Russian barbarians. am

    They study, study and study again, and then consider the possibility, etc. and so on and so on ad infinitum. And the simple Syrian people need to live. Just live. And our guys are without study. If necessary, then it is necessary.

    In all likelihood, the UN just needs to put a tick on the work done and Russia and Syria to rake it all. Interestingly, the great Ukrainians and the Balts will put in their three pennies without blaming Russia?

    UNMAS. Barely found on the network what kind of beast
    Established in 1997, the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) serves as the focal point for UN efforts to neutralize landmines and explosive remnants of war and reduce their impact on human lives.

    In short, a bunch of loafers and balabol.

    The UN was not really eager to consider something when executions were carried out there, poisoned people with chemical weapons. Waited for easier? Yes, you can only imagine - a blue helmet will be blown up there by its own stupidity - this is immediately a new idol for all of Europe. We know how they love themselves. Well them to the devil. You can not help - at least do not bother.

      But it cannot be otherwise, in principle, because real mine clearance requires money and specialists. And for their specialists it is necessary: ​​coffee + living conditions for the duration of mine clearance + the one who will ensure safety + real work and not declaration.

    And won't give them access. Whom to admit - sappers from countries that shouted "Assad must leave"? Nafig they are needed, and even in Damascus.

    “We are not yet present in Damascus because the government did not give us access. We look forward to establishing a presence in Damascus, ”

    They created the "Coalition" and entered Syria without "access." They piled up there, in the absence of "access". Russia introduced videoconferencing to Syria by invitation (access), sappers came, they clean up, including behind them, guano. And now they needed "access" to explore the possibilities.

    Probably this "dealer" (probably with a higher military engineering education laughing ) personally come to Palmyra, pick up the mine detector and go looking for mines.
    I really want them (the directors) to participate, and even better to lead, for example, to come to the camp of our sappers, stick a UN flag there and then report on the progress of clearance from the UN high rostrum.
