Microsoft will extend technology support to Ukraine for free throughout calendar year 2023 by providing additional technology assistance worth $100 million

Microsoft’s technology support will enable government agencies, critical infrastructure and other sectors in Ukraine to continue to operate their digital infrastructure and serve citizens through the Microsoft cloud.

Brad Smith, Vice President and President of Microsoft, announced the commitment in Lisbon, Portugal during a joint press conference with Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.

Ukraine’s continued defense depends in part on a critical digital alliance of countries, businesses and nonprofits. Since the start of the war in February, Microsoft and other technology companies have provided unprecedented technological assistance to the government and people of Ukraine. By distributing digital infrastructure in the public cloud, Microsoft and others have supported essential Ukrainian services through data centers across Europe. As Microsoft’s June report pointed out, this has played a critical role in protecting the resiliency and security of Ukraine’s digital data and services, even in the face of Russian cruise missiles and other kinetic attacks. against the Ukrainian government data center and other physical assets.

The digital alliance supporting Ukraine must remain strong.

This pledge brings Microsoft’s total support to Ukraine to more than $400 million since the war began in February. In addition to enabling technology services to run in the Microsoft Cloud, the company continues:

  • supporting the country with critical cybersecurity protection;
  • support non-profit organizations and humanitarian organizations operating in Ukraine, Poland and elsewhere in the European Union;
  • provide data and support to international organizations assisting Ukraine and addressing war crimes against civilians;
  • support and assist employees who contribute to nonprofit organizations engaged in humanitarian relief efforts.
