Ukrainians should be able to get all services from the state online - President

Automation of interaction of citizens with the state is a practical fight against corruption at all levels. And political will in Ukraine is enough for further digital transformations in the country, as stated by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during the online presentation of digital passports in the mobile application "Diia".

The Head of State noted that transparency and honesty of the authorities is what all Ukrainian citizens deserve.

"I am convinced and set such a task for our government that all services from the state should be available to Ukrainians online without the need to go to any government offices," the President said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy assured that there is now enough political will for the further digital transformation of Ukraine. The government will continue to amend outdated legislation that hinders digital reform.

"A state in a smartphone" must exist. And we see it. I believe that Ukraine will definitely become a modern digital leader in the world,” he said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that the first important step in the implementation of “A state in a smartphone” strategy was the presentation of the mobile application “Diia” at the beginning of February. Then it included a digital driver's license and car registration license. In the first three days of "Diia" the application was used by one million Ukrainians. Currently, there are 2.3 million users. “Diia” is among the leaders in terms of downloads both in the Play Market and the App Store.

“This shows only one thing: Ukrainians have long been ready for qualitative changes. Ukrainians want to interact with the state comfortably and without undue hardship. And we are ready to offer them these qualitative changes,” the President said.

The Head of State also reminded that the single state web portal of electronic services "Diia" started working in early April. It now has 27 public services available online.

“Today it is extremely timely, as it is an opportunity for Ukrainians to solve many of their complicated issues with the state completely online without leaving home and, very importantly, without violating quarantine,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed.
