Within the framework of the IT coalition, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine is working on ensuring communication for the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the tactical level, states Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine Kateryna Chornohorenko.

"We have several priority areas, and we are working on the urgent need to ensure communication at the tactical level. This involves dozens of battalions directly engaged in combat operations. Communication allows for quick coordination on the battlefield, in dynamic battles, and so on," stated Chornogor.

She also noted that the ministry is working on the formation of IT infrastructure that will enable the military to have a powerful and secure server component.

The Deputy Minister also emphasized that after a technical meeting with members of this platform in mid-November, Ukraine has already provided specific packages of assistance to its partners.
