In a recent press release, the Ukraine Ministry of Digital Transformation announced that educational documents will soon be available on the Diia (Дія) online government services portal. A joint project between the Ministry of Digital Transformation and Ministry of Education and Science, the Diia app will allow Ukrainian diploma and certificate holders to access digital versions of their educational documents. The portal will include data contained in the Unified State Electronic Database on Education (EDEBO), which encompasses information for credentials awarded at all levels of education in Ukraine (basic secondary education, general secondary education, vocational and technical education, professional preliminary education, and higher education).
The Ministry of Digital Transformation, formed in 2019, intends to make 100% of public services available online to Ukrainian citizens and businesses by 2024. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has necessitated a transition to digital services, as Ukrainians have been forced to evacuate. The ministry cites the importance of student access to documents regardless of geographical location.
