Digital Ukraine: One Year Since the Invasion - Episode 1

One year after Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, Bhaskar Chakravorti is rejoined by Sergiy Fitsak, Kate Ryzha, and Lyubomyr Nykyforuk of Softjourn to discuss the current state of Ukrainian business and digital infrastructure. The global technology services provider is headquartered in Ivano-Frankivsk, where many of its employees remain. Sergiy and Kate reflect on the importance of building redundancies to increase digital resiliency against power outages and continuously monitoring their team’s equipment needs and circumstances. Over the last year, Lyubomyr has noticed increased demand for Softjourn’s consultancy and technical expertise, adding, “If [Russian forces] planned to make us weaker, they actually get the opposite.” As the conflict continues, Sergiy reminds viewers that “Ukrainian people are not fighting to survive. They are fighting because we understand what freedom is, and we are fighting for freedom.”
