    Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, posted 14 October 2023 12:12

    Digitalization of recovery is one of the priorities of the Ministry of Digital Transformation. Since the first month of the full-scale invasion, we have added to Diia an option to send a report about damaged or destroyed property. Over 535,000 reports have been received since then. All the information received is entered and stored in the Register of Damaged and Destroyed Property, which has become the foundation for the digitalization of Ukraine's reconstruction.

    In May, the eVidnovlennia program was launched, allowing Ukrainians to receive funds for home repairs or compensation for property destroyed during the hostilities. Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister for Innovation, Education, Science and Technology Development and Minister of Digital Transformation, spoke about the digitalization of reconstruction and technologies at the front during the telethon.

    "eVidnovlennia is one of the most complex services we have launched. A person submits an application through Diia, and at the same time, data is checked against many registers. Then the information is processed, stored, and logged with an electronic signature. This is a whole digital ecosystem - from the Register of Damaged and Destroyed Property to the ability to submit an application through Diia. In total, 50,000 Ukrainians have already applied for funds for housing repairs. 19,300 of them have received payments in the amount of UAH 1.5 billion. We have also received 4,200 applications for compensation for destroyed property," said Mykhailo Fedorov.

    The Deputy Prime Minister said that the team of the Ministry of Digital Transformation was constantly working to improve and simplify the provision of services. We are also analyzing what should be changed by law or regulation to make services even more convenient for Ukrainians and to make all processes clear and transparent.

    In general, the digitalization of construction sector began in 2019 and has had a positive anti-corruption effect. Thanks to the introduction of an e-system in the construction sector, the state saves UAH 3 billion annually. To improve the digitalization of the construction sector, the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Ministry of Finance developed draft law 5655. It improves digital services that have proven themselves.

    In addition, Mykhailo Fedorov spoke about the use of drones at the front, operator training, and the effectiveness of the UAV attack squads of the Drone Army.

    "This week we received 5,000 FPV drones from the Unity operation. This is a joint fundraising effort by UNITED24, the Come Back Alive Foundation and Monobank, which raised UAH 235 million. All drones arrive at the front with ammunition, so each drone is ready for use. Another 5,000 drones from this batch will arrive pretty soon," said Mykhailo Fedorov.
