    US Defense Contractor Posts Job Offering For "Classified Contingency Operations" In Ukraine

    The geopolitical analysis site SouthFront has unearthed from the pages of LinkedIn an incredible public job offering by a US defense contractor which reveals potentially sensitive information. The job posting mentions "classified Contingency Operations" in Ukraine and was posted a mere 15 days ago just prior to last Sunday's incident between the Russian and Ukrainian navies in the Kerch Strait.
    Writes SouthFront,the US-based defense contractor company "Mission Essential" accidentally revealed a US military specialist deployment in the combat zones in Ukraine via a Job Advertisement on LinkedIn.
    Crucially, it's yet further evidence which disproves the years-long claims by Washington that the United States is not directly involved militarily in the Ukraine conflict. The public posting suggests US special forces operations are indeed active and ongoing as tensions with Russia soar.

    Screenshot provided should the advert time out or is “accidentally” taken down. Here is the link for the original job posting.

    Similar to the Atlantic Council’s latest report on the independence of Eastern European countries, as well as the meeting between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin, the posting came just days before the escalation in the Sea of Azov.
    "Mission Essential" is a government contractor based in the Washington D.C. suburb of Herndon, VA primarily serving intelligence and military clients, and is also considered a leading provider of translation and interpretation services for the US government.
    The preemptive job advert was posted on November 16th and seeks:
    ...linguist candidates who speak Ukrainian to provide foreign language interpretation and translation services to support classified Contingency Operations in support of the U.S. Military in Ukraine.
    The formal place of work is Mykolayiv, Ukraine. The port city is also significant, because that is where the US “logistical” naval facility is currently under construction.

    The advert also requires candidates to be able to fit in the local culture and customs, in addition to “the ability to deal inconspicuously with local populace if necessary.” Which simply means that the interpreter needs to be able to hide the fact that he is not a Ukrainian citizen, at least partly.
    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.”

    1. It's a contingency.. Look that one up.

    2. It says relocation to Ukraine will only happen if necessary.

    Which means this contractor is planning for the contingency of classified Ukrainian operations in the future. Which should surprise no one.

    Meanwhile, it's another ZH nothingburger.

    I'm comforted that our MIC was only preparing for the possibility of US operations in Ukraine, the fact that their buddies almost caused a war with Russia that would have activated those preparations shortly thereafter is TRULY a "nothing-burger".

    It doesn't say the military was doing anything--only that a contractor was.

    So you think they haven't filled the position in the last 15 days?
    You think that this doesn't even suggest that there may be more going on that didn't get leaked?

    The link says there are no applicants yet.

    I see they are also looking for a Norwegian translator. US Special Forces active in Norway as well? Looking at their website they are mostly IT and communications people- not combat.

    Maybe it'll be the US's turn to send active duty troops into a combat zone (with their vehicles) and claim that they were there on leave. Or by accident.
