Ukrainian government launched a pilot project for the creation of digital ID of citizens of Ukraine – verification of electronic registers users. Ukraine’s Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk announced this, as the website of Cabinet of Ministers states.
“This verified information will be used for further All-Ukraine population census. In addition, it will simplify all procedures of assigning and payment of social benefits,” Honcharuk said.
In order to do this, technical security and protection of the registers will be checked during the next six months, as well as completeness and reliability of users’ information in the existing registers, in particular by correlation of data of different registers.
Digital ID of the citizen will also allow detecting and eliminating duplication of data about the same person or cloning of a unique record of the user.
It was reported that the cost of ID cards and foreign passports has increased in Ukraine since July 1.
Earlier, it was reported that the government planned to convert a number of bureaucratic procedures into digital format. The Cabinet of Ministers also approved a draft law that will simplify the receipt of free legal assistance for low-income citizens. It will be possible to apply for it without an income statement. It is noted that the draft law will soon be submitted to the Verkhovna Rada.
