We have been building a digital state for almost 3 years. And even despite the full-scale invasion, we continue to introduce new services given the needs of Ukrainians. Japan is also now focusing on the digital transformation and improvement of public services. We are ready to share the Ukrainian experience and our best solutionsMykhailo Fedorov
Today, the world’s first cyber war continues, and Ukraine manages to successfully defend the country’s digital borders. Therefore, Japan is interested in the experience of the Ministry in the field of cyber security as well as support of critical infrastructure.
Besides, modern warfare implies modern solutions: IT army, cryptocurrency fund, digital blockade, Starlink. We are grateful to Japanese companies for their support – exit from the russian market and donations for humanitarian purposes. Hence, we are preparing proposals on how they can help Ukraine in its confrontation with russia.
