Ukraine & Clearances

So i am a contractor…im working contracts in the middle east currently and my contract is up this coming February. I have been given an opportunity to go work in Ukraine to help out as a medic.
My question is…would doing so screw me from ever getting my clearance again?

It would not prevent you from ever getting a clearance again but the foreign residency might make your next investigation take longer. Maybe get contact info for any US persons you work with who could later serve as references.

Слава героям!


So, serving as a foreign fighter for another country wouldnt keep you from getting a secret clearance in the future?

Hmm… didn’t think of it that way. If you were in fact a “medic” or “corpsman” embedded in a Ukrainian military formation, that would be quite different from being some kind of medical volunteer in a non-military role.
