In order to create digital IDs for citizens of Ukraine, the country’s Cabinet of Ministers has launched a pilot project.
The press service of the government stated: “For this purpose, the technical condition and security level as well as the reliability of the existing registers will be checked over the next six months, in particular by comparing the data of different registers.”
Data duplication or cloning of a person’s biometrics will be detected and eliminated better with a digital ID.
“This verified data will be used to hold an All-Ukrainian population census. In addition, it will allow the government to simplify all the procedures for assigning and paying social benefits in the future,” according to the statement.
