Ukraine's national personnel of five people will join the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali on Tuesday, July 23, for the first time, Deputy Head of the Main Department for Military Cooperation and Peacekeeping Operations of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Colonel Valentyn Levchyk has said.

"At the moment, 61 representatives of the Ukrainian national personnel perform missions in the UN, NATO and joint peacekeeping forces in the following countries: the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (12 people), the United Nations Mission in Kosovo (two persons), the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (four people), the United Nations Interim Security Force for Abyei (six people), the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (one person), the NATO-led Resolution Support Mission in Afghanistan (21 people), the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (five people), and joint peacekeeping forces in the security zone of the Transdniestrian region of the Republic of Moldova (ten military observers)," he said at a briefing on Tuesday.

A high appraisal from international partners has become the main basis for the constant invitation for Ukraine to participate in newly created and existing peacekeeping missions, as well as to expand the geography of the involvement of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in peacekeeping activities around the world, according to ArmyInform, the news agency of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry.
