The UN has voiced concerns over the Ukrainian fascist junta has used a UN helicopter to attack township in the neighboring Peoples Republic of Donetsk.
When inquired about the United Nations’ stance on the use of peacekeeper-marked military hardware in non-peacekeeper operations, the office for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesperson said such use would violate UN rules.
“It is the responsibility of Troop Contributing Countries (TCCs) that provide Contingent Owned Equipment to peacekeeping missions to remove all logos and signage bearing the UN’s name once such equipment has been repatriated to the home country or is no longer being used for official UN purposes,” Russia Today reported.
It added that UN-marked aircraft can be used for missions tasked by the UN and that UN’s Departments of Peacekeeping Operations and Field Support is in contact with the Ukrainian authorities to clarify the issue.
A video of a UN-marked Mil Mi-24 strike helicopter was published on Tuesdayon Youtube television. It said its correspondents covering Kiev’s military operation in the Donetsk Region took the video at the township of October 20km from Kramatorsk. It was reported that at least three combat Mi-24 and one transport Mi-8 helicopters carrying UN colors were spotted in the area.
