Soviet United Nations Peacekeepers

What did their uniforms look like?

For some reason I want to say this photo depicts a group of Russian "peacekeepers" sent to Moldova, not under UN auspices or control. I could be wrong, though.

I recall a picture of Soviet officers attached (or formally attached) to a United Nations mission of some sort--they wore their normal officer's uniforms, with the trademark western-style light blue berets with metal United Nations badges on them in the place of a visor cap.

I suppose it might depend on the regulations of the peacekeeping mission itself--the presence of national insignia on the field uniform, etc.

i am not sure about peacekeepers, but i have an observer to the UN uniform that it is a warm weather version. a rather cool patch on it (symbol of the UN with a hammer and sickle superimposed on the world) but yeah, not sure if that would be a peace keeping officers uniform as well (this has a rank of Lt. colonel)

I found a Russian advisor one. I always thought the red patch saying RUSSIA in English was worn for Peacekeeping missions? Or is that a fantasy item?

Peacekeeping 1932 Style?

:rolleyes: Just kidding. It's an M32 attache tunic. I don't think their intentions were quite as good as peacekeepers, often rebranded nkvd officers involved in foriegn intrigue.

That's another sweet tunic that's made it to the JM stable. Well done, yet again :thumbsup

Jeffrey,

I believe this is an observer's uniform, not peacekeeper's. The beret looks like a standard issue Soviet paratrooper's beret with a UN patch from a suvenir shop in the UN complex in NY.
