Yeah, I've been watching that. It's buried under a lot of other world events. Russia handed them a fist full of cash and I don't think we should play the "who's willing to pay more" game (I actually support the Administration on that). I just feel your employer could have reservations about you being there (liability).
Yeah I saw this in the news. It's kind of misleading though.
Here was KG's beef with the US. We promised that we would purchase supplies and food from them. We didn't really do that. We also promised some American investments into their country. Again, we didn't do that. You add up those things and the way we handled a couple situations (killing of truck driver, disappearing military personell, etc) I can see why KG, decided to venture back with Russia. Russia was promising cash investments from the gov't rather than the private sector the US promised.
Will be interesting considering Russia's budget is similar to ours but just a not quite the same deficit.
One other obstacle I found out is that many of the local jobs require residency of 1 year there in KG (even the US embassy). So may have to figure out something for that period, if we decide to go that route.
One positive thing I have in my favor is the third party we have an contract with and work closely with has a gentleman that worked for them then for us and now them again. He recently moved back to his country (down under) and that seems to be working out for them. Hopefully that could serve as a precendence for me? We'll see.
Who knows maybe I'd just be contractual?
