President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko stated this at the youth forum titled "The opinion of young people is important. The prospect of joining NATO and the EU" on Monday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
"We have already had 150,000 IT specialists. Unfortunately, most of them are currently outsourced - they produce a product and send it abroad. We need to create conditions for creative business and new Ukrainian startups to be created and worked in Ukraine and for increasing the number of IT specialists.

He added that representatives of the IT sector were the middle class, namely the pillar of our state, democracy and freedom. That’s why the president critically responded in Lviv to "initiatives of some ministries".
