After weeks of heightened tensions and escalating conflict in eastern Ukraine, Russian troops entered the country on 24 February. Major attacks have been reported across Ukraine, including in the capital, Kyiv. Due to this conflict and possibly large population movements, DSS is anticipating requests for HR support from partners like UNHCR, IOM and UNICEF.

DSS water is therefore currently assessing which experts would be interested and available to be deployed on very short notice to the region, in case a request for surge support comes in. Fluency in Ukrainian, Russian or other languages in the region is an advantage.

If you are interested and available to be deployed through DSS water, kindly reply to DSSwater@rvo.nl and share:

  • Your CV
  • Your availability
  • An overview of your language skills (of the region), especially Ukrainian/Russian
