Volodymyr Chubirko, Chairman of the Regional Council of Transcarpathian Ukraine, gave a short speech at the opening ceremony of the ISSS 2023 Conference on Monday 15 May in the Aldis Congress Centre in Hradec Kralove.

“The war in Ukraine did not start when Russian tanks invaded our territory, the Russians first carried out cyber-attacks on state organizations, ministries and local governments so that the state could not function. So we promptly created a small army of cyberpartisans to protect our state, and we won the first phase of the war. This accelerated digitalisation enormously, and within a few months documents could be processed online and much of the state’s services moved to the telephone. In the future, we should join forces within the European Union to digitalize the state and protect it from cyber attacks,” Volodymyr Chubirko said at the opening ceremony.
