Según informes de NetBlocks, organización no gubernamental que da seguimiento a la ciberseguridad y gobernanza, se ha registrado una importante caída en la conectividad
Maintaining connections is a critical factor for Ukraine right now. Since the beginning of the conflict, connectivity has worsened due to continuous shelling and attacks on the communications infrastructure, forcing the country to look for alternatives.
Through the European project EU Support for eGovernment and the Digital Economy in Ukraine (EU4DigitalUA), FIIAPP is working to mitigate the digital consequences of the conflict. For this reason, emergency equipment has been delivered to the country that “will help to promote internal communications between Ukrainian public institutions”, as stated by the project’s institutional coordinator, María Gastón.
Although ten satellite telephones have already been sent, five generators and one hundred charging batteries have now been delivered, which “will enable the government’s work to continue, providing alternative or auxiliary means of energy in times of supply difficulties”, explains Gastón.
She herself has gone, together with the representative of the Ukrainian embassy in Poland, to the border between the two countries to ensure the delivery of the equipment. This delivery completes the first package of material assistance that will be completed in the near future, as part of the activity reorientation plan agreed between the EU4DigitalUA project, the Uranian Ministry of Digital Transformation and the EU Delegation in Ukraine.
The aim of the EU-funded project is to improve the efficiency and security of public service delivery and access to public services for citizens and businesses through digital communication.
