"Moreover, each letter of the order, to sign with the troop-contributing countries, clearly states that their governments can use the UN symbols only for operations that were requested by the United Nations," the Department for Peacekeeping Operations noted.
Earlier media reported that at least three helicopters colored white with UN identification marks were used in military operation near Kramatorsk.
There were three combat Mi-24 and one Mi-8 helicopters. Ukrainian helicopters were involved in several UN peacekeeping missions particularly in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
