The job offer on Linkedin

Strange job offer surfaces from days before Ukraine-Russia stand-off

The geopolitical analysis site SouthFront has uncovered a job offering page by a US defense contractor  for "classified Contingency Operations" in Ukraine.

    It was posted some 15 days ago, just ahead of last Sunday’s incursion by the Ukrainian navy into the Russian controlled Kerch Strait, resulting in a tense stand-off between the two countries.

    It appears that the US-based defense contractor company Mission Essential accidentally revealed a US military specialist deployment in Ukraine via a Job Advertisement on LinkedIn.

    Although Washington claims not to be directly involved in the Ukraine conflict, the posting suggests US special forces operations are ongoing and aimed at Russia.

    The job posting coincides with the Atlantic Council’s support for intervention in Ukraine, as well as the meeting between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin, just days before the escalation in the Sea of Azov near the much-maligned Kerch Bridge.

    Mission Essential is a US government contractor based in Washington DC, mainly working for intelligence and military clients, and one of the leading providers of translation and interpretation services to the US government.

    The offer requires “linguist candidates who speak Ukrainian to provide foreign language interpretation and translation services to support classified Contingency Operations in support of the US Military in Ukraine”.

    The formal place of work is indicated as Mykolayiv, Ukraine where a US “logistical” naval facility is currently under construction.

    The advert also requires candidates with “the ability to deal inconspicuously with local populace if necessary”, which means that the interpreter should hide the fact that he or she is not a Ukrainian citizen.

    Unsurprisingly, the individual needs to be able to serve in a combat zone “if necessary,” in addition to being able to “live, work, and travel in harsh environments, to include living and working in temporary facilities as mission dictates”.

    Other vacancies posted by the company are mostly for analysts and various linguistical and project management positions at different military facilities in the US.

    It appears that the translators will be required to assist US military personnel deployed in or near the “combat zones” in Ukraine as early as November 16, near the Sea of Azov.

    The peculiar job offering reinforces the suspicion that the “provocation by Russia” in the Sea of Azov could somehow have been premeditated.

    Petro Poroshenko, the president of Ukraine, is meanwhile still attempting to curry favor in the US with duplicitous remarks about the death of the former US President George HW Bush.

    Bush senior indeed “witnessed the restoration of Ukraine’s independence”, but it happened against his strong advice.

    On August 1, 1991, months before a December referendum in which the Ukraine voted to withdraw from the Soviet Union, he visited Kiev and held a speech in the Ukrainian parliament. Bush told the members of the Verkhovna Rada not to seek independence, but to stay in a union with Russia and other Soviet Republics.

    “Americans will not support those who seek independence in order to replace a far-off tyranny with a local despotism. They will not aid those who promote a suicidal nationalism based upon ethnic hatred,” Bush senior said at the time.
