How to Get A Job?
On 21 March 2014, the Permanent Council of OSCE decided to deploy the Special monitoring mission of unarmed civilian observers to Ukraine.

Peace and stability in Ukraine became fragile. The OSCE, the largest regional security organization in the world, decided to assist and support Ukraine.

The Mission was deployed following a request to the OSCE by Ukraine’s government and was agreed by all 57 OSCE’s participating States.

The ultimate goal of the SMM is to help Ukraine to reduce tensions and facilitate dialogue between all the sides.

The Mission currently consists of over 700 unarmed civilian monitors from more than 40 OSCE participating States; and local staff from Ukraine.

The mandate of the Mission covers the entire territory of Ukraine. The Mission’s Head Office is in Kyiv, and the monitoring teams work in 10 biggest cities of Ukraine: Chernivtsi, Dnepropetrovsk, Donetsk, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kharkiv, Kherson, Kyiv, Luhansk, Lviv, Odessa.

In February 2016 its mandate was extended until 31 March 2017, with the possibility of further extension if necessary.
