The Ukrainian military intelligence has announced recruitment for units that carry out "the most audacious" operations, which include activities on the territory of the Russian Federation.

"Be the sword of your country - join the elite," reads the announcement posted on Telegram on Saturday.

The intelligence, led by 37-year-old General Kyrylo Budanov, points out that the active operations units have executed a number of operations behind enemy lines and in enemy territory. Among these, we have airborne actions in occupied Crimea, the liberation of Snake Island, and the seizure of drilling platforms in the Black Sea.

"If you are resolved, desire Ukraine's victory, and are unafraid of difficult tasks, complete the survey and prepare for an adventure!" reads the announcement.

How much money is in intelligence?

The attached message states that the Ukrainian military intelligence is seeking law-abiding Ukrainian citizens between the ages of 18 and 40. These individuals should be motivated to fight and adequately prepared for action in the active combat zone. Applicants should not have close relatives who are citizens of Russia.

Those employed by the military intelligence can look forward to service on a contractual basis and a salary ranging from 70 to 140 thousand hryvnias with additions, equivalent to about $2,628 to $5,256.
