The Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine reported that the Internet corporation ICANN allocated $1 million to Ukraine to support the domain system.

The press service of the Ministry of Digital Development writes about this in Telegram.

The ministry recalled that the operation of the domain system is a critically important component of the Internet.

"It is thanks to domains that we are used to accessing websites using friendly addresses, such as google.com or apple.com.

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion, the domain system of Ukraine has undergone massive cyberattacks. Therefore, it was necessary to secure and strengthen it so that Ukrainians could continue to search, receive and distribute information on the Internet.

To this end, the Ministry of Digital Development, together with the Ukrainian stakeholders of the domain industry, agreed that the Internet corporation ICANN will provide Ukraine with funding in the amount of $1 million in financial assistance to ensure uninterrupted access to the Internet," the message says.

The Ministry of Digital Development added that, together with the teams of Internet providers, administrators and domain registrars, they continue to maintain the stable operation of the Internet in the face of armed aggression.
