President Petro Poroshenko has issued an order to make up to 20 Ukrainian servicemen available for the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSIMA).

The document says the decision has been taken to confirm Ukraine's commitment as a UN member state on the proposal of the National Security and Defence Council.

MINUSMA was established on 25 April 2013 by UN Security Council Resolution 2100 to stabilise the country after the Tuareg rebellion.
