“Microsoft” Allocates $100 Mln to Servicing Ukrainian Servers

Due to the decision of the corporation, the Ukrainian critical infrastructure will continue to use the "Microsoft "cloud free of charge for the duration of the war

Microsoft vice president Brad Smith, during a meeting with digital transformation minister Mikhailo Fedorov, announced that the company would continue to support Ukraine. The corporation will provide Ukraine with $100 million in technical support to use the Microsoft cloud for the needs of Ukrainian government departments. Thus, Ukraine's critical infrastructure will be protected from Russian hacker attacks. Since the beginning of the war, the corporation has donated more than $400 million to Ukraine.

Microsoft will also lead the implementation of digital projects in the areas of cybersecurity, litigation, customs, medicine and education in Ukraine.

We remind you that on the eve of Russia's full-scale Russian attack on Ukraine on February 24, Amazon Web Services accepted 10 petabytes of data from Ukrainian ministries and other critical organizations onto their servers. Thus, Ukrainian secret data is highly protected from occupiers.
