The signed memorandum will help strengthen the digital transformation and modernization of telecom infrastructure in Ukraine. We will also adopt the best practices to prevent cyber and hybrid threats and develop the digital resilience of the state," said Mykhailo Fedorov.
"I am very impressed by the work done in Ukraine to promote digitalisation. With this Memorandum of Understanding we are already looking ahead towards the time of Ukraine’s reconstruction. I am sure that we can learn a lot from each other," added Timo Harakka.
The signed memorandum will allow the countries to exchange experience in the areas of digitalization, information technology and cybersecurity. Ukraine and Finland will cooperate in the field of digital resilience, as well as in the restoration and modernization of digital infrastructure.
