Ukrainian Digital Transformation Ministry says EU to allocate 17.4 mln euros for digitization

MOSCOW. Feb 21 (Interfax) - The European Union is launching the Digital Transformation for Ukraine (DT4UA) project and plans to allocate 17.4 million euros in aid for its implementation, Ukrainian media reported, citing the country's Digital Transformation Ministry.

It is the EU's obligation to help ensure continuous development of digital services in Ukraine, the ministry reported the head of the EU's delegation to Ukraine, Matti Maasikas as saying.

The funds are intended for developing digital services, improving data sharing between registrars and government institutions, and developing e-government systems, which will make it possible to transparently consider criminal cases, the ministry said.

The ministry will roll out the project with the Estonian E-Governance Academy, which has been working with Ukraine's state sector for 12 years. The academy is now working on four projects in Ukraine with a combined budget of 41 million euros.
