Austria will provide generators for digital infrastructure to Ukraine

The Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine informed about this in a telegram Mykhailo Fedorov.

“Our priority is to restore communication in the de-occupied territories as quickly as possible. Austrian colleagues are ready to help our servers and digital infrastructure by allocating a batch of generators,” Fedorov wrote.

It is reported that the number will work on providing Ukraine with Starlink, and for this, even more terminals are needed to support the work of the telecom infrastructure.

Currently, Ukraine and Austria have signed a memorandum on cooperation in the field of digitization. The team of the Ministry of Digital will share their experience in building a digital state. Now the Austrians are working on the launch of digital documents in the one-stop shop of the Digitales Amt application, which works on a similar principle to Diya.

“Like Ukraine in the past, they started with the launch of a digital driver’s license. Earlier, we shared our achievements in the field of driving and will help with the digitization of other documents. There is a lot of joint work ahead,” added the minister of digital transformation.
