The Ukrainian Defense Ministry announced today that it has refused to send a helicopter squadron to Iraq to join Ukraine's peacekeeping force, according to Ukrainian Armed Force's Euro-Atlantic Cooperation Division Director Major-General Leonid Golopatyuk.
He said according to the anti-Iraq peacekeeping coalition's guidelines, the US and Poland should provide all helicopter support for the operation. Furthermore, Iraq does not have the necessary conditions for accommodating a Ukrainian helicopter squadron.
At the end of last year the Ukrainian Defense Ministry stated its intentions to send two military helicopters and two transport airplanes to Iraq.
Most EU countries are allied with US-dominated NATO - a killing machine involved in smashing one sovereign state after another. It's responsible for vast destruction, millions of casualties, and appalling human misery from the rape of Yugoslavia and post-9/11 US-led wars of aggression - based on Big Lies and deception.
