Ukraine is one of those nations that have advanced digitization and centralization of their different platforms. With the impending ongoing war, Ukraine is finding its strength in these digitization and centralization processes every day.
In 2020, they brought out an app called Diia, a conglomerate of all essential Ukrainian documents together. From this app, you can find out your identity cards, passports, vaccination details, insurance, registrations, insurances, health reimbursements, and also more about social benefits.
No longer does a Ukrainian need to shovel from one platform to another for their different documents and certificates. They can simply log in to Diia and find out their necessary documents.
Other than the Chinese, Ukrainians are the only ones to be working on this model so far.

Diia helps in assimilating all the documents for an individual but keeping it safe is a huge added task for the government. Regular information leakage and hacking of this app is not something not being attempted posing a huge risk for people alone.
Even though government officials deny any breach but then that is not something that can be said for sure. Data protection is a real issue and needs to be tackled with care to maintain Diia in the best possible way.
