The Government has initiated a pilot project to create a digital ID for Ukrainian citizens - verification of the identity of users of electronic registers.
For this purpose, the state of technical condition and security level, as well as the level of protection of existing registers, will be checked over the next six months, as also the completeness and authenticity of user data in the existing registers, in particular by comparing the data of different registers.
A Citizen ID shall also allow to uncover and eliminate data duplication about one person or cloning of a unique user record.
“These verified data will be used to ensure a further All-Ukrainian population census. Plus, this will allow the State to simplify all the procedures for assigning and paying social benefits in the future,” said Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk.
