The developer of the fake Diya application was offered an internship at the Ministry of Digital Transformation as ameasure of re-education. The Ministry of Internal Affairs, whose staff detained the boy, has already agreed to such a measure against him, the press service departments reports.

"I constantly emphasize that we in the Ministry of Internal Affairs are focused on building a service, not a punitive body. And today's story, in my opinion, is a great example. Cyberpolice quickly found a self-taught hacker who had recently created the fake Diya app. We also introduced him to the Minister of Digital Transformation just as quickly. The guy was offered to atone for his guilt and work in the ministry," said First Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Yevhen Yenin.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov proposed giving the young cyber-scammer a second chance.

After a post about a guy who created a fake Diya copy, Anton Gerashchenko contacted me. He liked the idea of re-education in IT. He decided to support it by arranging a meeting for us...A 21-year-old boy was sitting in front of me. A little shy, but very smart, well-read. Already managed to work as an arbitrator, knows how to program and collect all the design in Figma," said Fedorov in his Telegram-channel.

At the Ministry of Digital Transformation, one of his first tasks will be to develop a variety of social advertising designs with campaigns for vaccination and against the use of alcohol by young people. The work of the guy in the Ministry will be supervised by the curator.

"As for the punishment, the guy will bear it. Which one? The court will decide. We are planning a number of projects to open up development opportunities for young boys. And don't try to fake anything else. This channel of getting to the Ministry of Digital Transformation no longer works," Fedorov warned.

As it was reported, on October 25 head of the Ministry of Finance Mykhailo Fedorov reported that fraudsters have created a fake Diya application in Ukraine.

The fake Diya application is installed by a link, not from Google Play. The purpose of this application is to create forgeries of fake certificates and fake passports for the purchase of alcohol by minors.

Ministry of Digital Transformation stated that fake Diya app can steal user data, including the banking information.

Cyberpolice soon exposed the developer of the fake Diya application. He turned out to be a 21-year-old resident of Zaporizhia region.
