Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov assured that the government will support developers of socially important Internet projects and expressed hope that ever more people will be attracted to this work.

The Head of government has said about this during a meeting with winners of the all-Ukrainian hackathon of socially important Internet projects.

“I took an interest in your projects, related to the use of open government data. Those projects, made by you, first, speak about your good level, second, that the hackathon movement develops in Ukraine. Therefore, I invited you to discuss how to do so that not the very few, but hundreds and thousands people were attracted to this work. How to use all modern possibilities, in particular, Internet resources, for the people to be informed,” Azarov said. At the same time, the Prime Minister reminded that a law on the access to public information has been adopted in Ukraine, according to which citizens can receive an access to open information sources within five days.

“Access to public information is also very important in the political sense, because it is a sign of an open democratic society,” Azarov noted.

Attending the meeting with the Prime Minister were authors of Internet projects such as Criminal Map of Ukraine, the author of the service project for planning the public transport routes and the author of the project of the open ranking of general educational schools of Ukraine according to external independent testing. By results of the meeting, the Premier instructed head of the State Agency for Science, Innovation and Informatization of Ukraine Volodymyr Semynozhenko to continue cooperation with winners of a competition of socially important Internet projects.
