On their LinkedIn profile, QATestLab — an international independent software testing provider with a big team of professionals in Ukraine — regularly post the latest news about the country and their company. Here is their latest Ukrainian Freedom Digest.
- Fighting continues in Ukraine. One of the significant successes of recent days is the return of control over Snake Island to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The most active hostilities are still going on in the East. There, the russian invaders are trying to concentrate their main forces. Defending this front, the Ukrainian Army is successfully carrying out a counteroffensive in the Kherson direction.
- As you know from the news, russia is launching targeted missile attacks on Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure to terrorize the population and the Ukrainian leadership. In recent weeks Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, Mykolaiv, Kremenchuk, and other cities have been shelled. The number of victims and deaths from these strikes goes to dozens.
- The unity of Ukrainians during the war amazes the world. The project “People’s Bayraktar” was recently held in the country. Ukrainian presenter and volunteer Serhiy Prytula planned to raise UAH 500 million in a week to buy three Bayraktars. In three days, Ukrainians gathered enough money to purchase four drones. Baykar said it was touched by the solidarity and determination of Ukrainians. The company decided to donate three Bayraktar TV2s to Ukraine free of charge. If you also want to help and endorse Ukrainians, you can contact trusted charitable foundations.
- And one more bright side: the Ukrainian borscht was recognized as an object of the intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO. Perhaps now Google and Apple will add emoji with Ukrainian borscht to their sets?
- At a conference in the Swiss city of Lugano, Ukraine presented a recovery plan, the cost of which is estimated at 750 billion dollars. The most expensive programs are the restoration and modernization of housing and infrastructure in the regions and the expansion and integration of logistics with the EU.
- Also in Lugano, an international digital initiative for the rapid restoration and development of Ukraine was presented. The Digital4Freedom project will help strengthen Ukraine and make it the most prominent IT hub in Eastern Europe. After the presentation of the initiative, a memorandum was signed with TOP UA providers: Kyivstar, Vodafone, and Datagroup-Volia to allocate more than 400 million hryvnias for the platform.
