 “We enhance the access of schools to modern technologies. This implies expanding access to the high-quality Internet in our schools, as well as the purchase of equipment for students and teachers. About 1 billion UAH was budgeted for these purposes in 2019, and we intend to use this money with the greatest benefit for our children. Therefore, we need a technical review that will help design the system in a most efficient way,” Hrynevych noted.
