Ten servicemen of the 56th Detached Helicopter Unit of the United Nations Mission in Liberia left for Côte d’Ivoire.
The main aim of this operation is to prepare the base camp and the airfield for the Detached Aviation Group of the 56th DHU, including three Mi-24 and 38 servicemen who will participate in the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire and trans-boundary operations.
“This movement is organized in three phases,” tells Col. Petro Plis. “Now we’ve started the first phase of entrance of the Ukrainian peacekeepers to Côte d’Ivoire. Our country opens a new page of our peacekeeping activities. Our participation in this operation proves the professionalism and confidence to our servicemen,” stressed Col. Petro Plis.
The Ukrainian peacekeepers will patrol the Western and Northern borders of the country, conduct air reconnaissance, and support the convoys of the units to remote areas.
