National Factor in the Formation of the Image of Peacekeeping in the Eurasian Space
This fact correlates with the data of the sociological survey (N = 583, representatives of Russia and the countries of Central Asia), according to which 49.6% of military personnel aged 22-27 consider peacekeeping to be a mostly political action and doubt in its effectiveness. While 31.2% of the respondents consider the language barrier and the difference in cultural aspects to be significant problems of effective interaction. It should be noted that 18.4% when choosing the opportunity to participate in a peacekeeping operation rely on the analysis of conditions in the host country related to national specifics. While more than half of respondents consider the knowledge of traditions and customs of the local population as a guarantee of effective work of peacekeepers. Thus, attention to information coverage of peacekeeping, as well as to the training of a multicultural contingent is quite important for ensuring peace-building.
