December 21, 2012 (LONDON) — The South Sudanese army, SPLA, shot down a United Nations helicopter in the troubled state of Jonglei, killing all the members of its Russian crew, the international organisation said.

Eduardo del Buey, Deputy Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General, announced Friday that the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) reported that one of its MI-8 helicopters with four crew members on board was shot down.

He said that "in subsequent communications between the Mission and the South Sudanese armed forces (SPLA), the SPLA told the Mission that it had shot at a helicopter in the Likuangole area in Jonglei State."

UN Secretary General and UN Security Council condemned the shooting down of the plane and urged Juba to investigate the accident, to hold those responsible accountable and to avoid its repetition in the future.

"The Secretary-General strongly condemns the shooting down today of a clearly marked UN helicopter by the Sudan People’s Liberation Army near Likuangole, in Jonglei State of South Sudan."

In their communiqué, the members of the Security Council "stressed that this accident constituted a grave violation of the Status of Forces Agreement of August 8, 2011 and jeopardized the UNMISS operations".

Buey said the plane was on a reconnaissance flight to the area, adding that after its crash a search and recovery mission confirmed the death of all four crew members.

The South Sudanese army at first denied shooting down the helicopter, however it admitted later its responsibility and regretted the accident saying its troops had mistaken it for a Sudanese plane supplying David Yau Yau’s rebels in Jonglei state.

SPLA spokesperson Philip Aguer, told Reuters that their forces opened fire on the helicopter because they had no information from the UNMISS about its presence in Pibor where a rebel group is operating.

"We saw a white plane landing and asked UNMISS whether they had any flight in the area but they denied it. The army opened fire because it thought it was an enemy plane supplying Yau Yau with weapons." he said.

"We later heard UNMISS had a flight there. They should have informed us," Aguer added.

South Sudan accuses the Sudanese government of supplying weapons to Yau Yau’s rebel group in Jonglei state, but Khartoum denies the charge.

There are some 120 Russian pilots and technicians working in the UNMISS operating four Mi-8MTV helicopters.

Initially, there was eight Russian helicopters in South Sudan but in the autumn of 2011 after attacks on the Russian pilots Moscow decided to withdraw four of them.

In January 2012, Susana Malcorra, undersecretary-general of the UN Department of Field Support announced that Russia is considering to withdraw its helicopters from the new state.

Russia’s Itar-Tass news agency said Friday that Moscow plans to withdraw its peacekeepers from South Sudan by the end of March 2013.

      I would agree that UN is double standard. There was something fishy in that UN Helicopter shot down, otherwise UN wouldn’t have denied of having no plane in the area. All crew members killed are Russian and it’s clear that Russia and Khartoum have strong relationship. Who knows whether these Russians were hired by Khartoum to deliver weapons to David Yau Yau. God knows!!!

    "We saw a white plane landing and asked UNMISS whether they had any flight in the area but they denied it." Why would UNIMISS deny the presence of their chopper in a known rebel area??? the answer is simple, they had something to hide! ie they were delivering much needed supplies to the rebels.

      Don’t bother. There is no tragedy here. This is an enemy plane shot down. This is not the first time. The commissioner of Pibor received credible information from civilians that NAM-NAM (a flat area that resemble air strip in Murle ) in Likuangole is used to deliver fresh arms and ammunitions from Khartoum in a white helicopter. For the sake of politics, let all shed crocodile tears!

    The UN real objective is to covertly arm rebels and fuel conflicts especially in third world countries around the world as a means of getting the general public to accept the diabolical idea of a "global community". The UN is a stepping stone in their working towards the Satanic New World Order."

    A copy of a top secret document has been smuggled out of the Executive Office Building in Washington DC.

    Parts of it are as follows:

    On transfer of sovereignty to the United Nations, those who do not conform to United Nations authority will be considered RESISTERS and declared ENEMIES OF THE GOVERNMENT. Public statements in support of the old ways and favoring continued United States nationalism will be considered ENEMY DOCTRINE.

    The PURPOSE for the build up of World Wars was to create a NEED for PEACE so that a UNITED NATIONS may be needed and then created as a SOLUTION for establishing peace between nations. A WORLD body of GOVERNMENT with a WORLD COURT and a WORLD POLICE to keep nations in place and to concentrate power into a few people’s hands.

    It all started with the League to Enforce the Peace, then the League of Nations and then finally The United Nations. If you look at things from a historical perspective, the U.N. today has implemented or is in the process of implementing all the planks of Adam Weishaupt’s Manifesto. (In 1848, Karl Marx wrote the 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto, which he copied from an article written by Adam Weishaupt in 1797.

        The reason my stuff appear garbage to you is simple: You worship a false God, the bible states (2 Corinthians 4:4) "In whom the god of this world (Satan) hath blinded the minds of them which believe not." Hey, if you don’t like the info, just ignore it! nobody is forcing you to read it.

        Consider the following message from Alice A. Bailey’s book ’The externalization of the Hierarchy" dictated to her by a demon named "Master D.K."

        The atomic bomb does not belong to the three nations who perfected it and who own the secrets at present - the United States of America, Great Britain and Canada. It belongs to the United Nations for use (or let us rather hope, simply for threatened use) when aggressive action on the part of any nation rears its ugly head. (P. 548)

    SPLA is full of idiots. How would they mistaken the UN helicopter with the foreign helicopter? They have not said the real reason why they shot it down. All of a sudden, they became good at shooting down aircrafts, when in the past few months the Khartoum’s MiGs and Antinovs were bombing; killing and wounding a lot of people at the border states. Where were these sharp shooters?

    SPLA should have monitoring system in the borders with the different countries in order to know which plane gets in the airspace of South Sudan instead of this haphazard behaviour. It is not only this incident, recently they shot their own boat killing more than 48 soldiers in Jonglei claiming they suspected it was Khartoum. I think SPLA still believes they are in the Bush.

            1- sugar prices went up in Sudan
            2- gold refinery is a lie from NCP to calm down people. if you have big gold, why don’t your country buy spare parts for buses ?
            3- dam will be closed soon, water will be cut by Africa countries.
            4- New roads are already stopped, South Sudan oil is out.
            5-New oil pipe is a lie, no more oil in Sudan.

            Why don;t we wait and see how developed S Sudan is after 25 years and then we may start crowing.

      For angry Sudanese, why is it that it’s only four Russians crew members? The four crew members are 2 pilots and 2 flight engineers. Now, there has to be other international civilians onboard as well to deliver humanitarian goods. How come there is no mention of other civilians onboard if it was really a UN helicopter or are you afraid they are going to be members of Sudanese armed forces!

      We are smart enough to tell the difference between our foe and ally. Russia is working for our destruction through Khartoum. The fact that they deliver aid to us doesn’t mean that they have to support rebels. Don’t blame us. That helicopter has been delivering arms to rebels since 2010.

      Gordon,

      You don’t seem to understand the tactics of the enemy - Satan, the Devil (through his human agents) Comes Cloaked as an Angel of Light.

      According to Russian born Satanist Helena Patrovna Blavatsky Evil is a necessity in, It is a necessity for progress and evolution (The Secret Doctrine, 11, p. 389) "It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God." pages 215, 216, 220, 245, 255, 533,(VI) —The Secret Doctrine.

      Alice Ann Bailey, a leading disciple of the Russian theosophist Madame Blavatsky ... a powerful institution that enjoys "Consultative Status" with the United Nations states:

      “Christ and anti-Christ are the dualities of spirituality and materialism, both in the individual and in humanity as a whole, Or you can speak of God and the Devil with the same basic implications”. —Alice A. Bailey, The Externalization Of The Hierarchy, 1957 p.137

      The bible says: "He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him; When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart. Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation." —Proverbs 26:24-26 (KJV)
