UN Camp Established in Kabanino
This was the first large scale "safe zone" established after the lore wipe. It opened the door for many groups (including NATO and the CDF) and individuals to meet each other and establish themselves, and acted as a backdrop for the beginnings of many story arcs. Some helped each other, some stole and fled, some lashed out against the UN Peacekeepers or Russians soldiers, and several incidents ended in gunfire and bloodshed.

First Battle Between UN and VDV
VDV arrived at UN camp stating demands to drop civilian rifles or be fired upon. Highest ranking UN official refused and a battle raged between VDV and UN leaving massive casualties on both sides with no clear victor.

August 20, 2017
Returning to their base in Cherno after the VDV withdrawal the CDF and government forces were met with angry civilians mobs and extreme civil unrest. The people wanted the CDF gone. Instead of creating any possible hostilities with civilians, the CDF left their capital revitalization project for an unknown location. Chernogorsk was meant to be a place where civilization could be born again, and what better place than the provincial capital. However it was difficult to monitor such a large town and the CDF had a lot on its plate fighting multiple entities at the same time. People thought the CDF weren't doing their job very efficiently and ordered them out. The government, built to serve the people, complied and left the capital for the civilians.

Formation of "The Gremlins" in BerezinoFirst time Stephen Brackett and Darion Dailey met, Brackett convinced him and his brothers to help him with his cause and explained all that the UN had done to him. They then went on to attack the UN camp for the first time as a group. This is the first time that the new friends worked together then going on to be a survivor/terrorist group named 'The Gremlins'. They also attacked many times after attacking the UN Camp/Nato Camp/Any soldiers of any form including some CDF members wearing berets in public. They also tried to destroy the current cure that the UN were holding in plans to take over the country but Raspad turned on them during the ordeal just before they burnt it in front of Ripley (Skinner).
This is where 'The Gremlins' were 100% viewed as criminals and terrorists by the NATO/UN/Riley Rangers. This is when 'The Gremlins' went to finish the job of NATO members who were rumoured to be attacking/robbing civilians. These people helped the Gremlins attack Polana Factory without a decisive victory, while injuring/killing many forces where Gremlin members were not injured but the extra people used as cannon fodder during this ordeal. They continued to be an enemy force to most of these groups but also likely to only attack those who have wronged them or direct allies to the people who wronged them.

UN Investigation of Ground Zero
United Nations and WHO were tasked in investigation of the 'pit' which led to the sickness of multiple peacekeepers. Due to this it was cautioned as a biological hazard during research with a geiger counter of radiation which meant a consumption of radiation poisoning had been issued without knowing. A report was written up and warned to people in Chernarus.
September 15, 2017
The United Nations attempts to evacuate as many survivors from South Zagoria as possible. They mass the survivors at the refugee camp in Stary Sobor and then move everyone to the North West Airfield to evacuate via UN Cargo Planes. However, things don't go according to plan and the evacuation is ambushed before they can evacuate the innocent civilians. Colonel Ripley is at the mercy of killers and psychopaths, yet he tries to find a way to get the data, samples, and research to the UN Headquarters in Miroslavl for in-depth analysis. In the end Mikael Kabanov betrays his group and allies in order to ensure the samples make it onto the chopper to return to Miroslavl, he spares the lives of Colonel Ripley, Major Holmen, and the rest of the UN Peacekeepers. For this, he is executed in the aftermath.
This event marked the end of the first official UN faction, the evacuation of UN high command to Miroslavl with a small number of UN peacekeepers, civilians, supplies, and most importantly months worth of samples and research data for analysis in Miroslavl. It also marked the death of Mikael Kabanov at the hands of Anton Chernenko who executed him.
