Mykhailo Fedorov is the Vice Prime Minister for Innovations, Development of Education, Science, and Technologies and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine. At age 28, he became the youngest minister in the history of Ukrainian politics.
With the Ministry of Digital Transformation’s goal to make Ukraine the most convenient state for receiving public services, Fedorov initiated the launching of the Diia project in 2020. This one-stop shop for public services and e-documents is used by over 19 million Ukrainians. With the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion, Fedorov has also helped launch several significant projects, including the UNITED24 fundraising platform, the Army of Drones, and the Brave1 defense tech cluster.
Before working in government, Fedorov ran a business in the digital marketing sphere. In December 2019, he was appointed Head of Digital for Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s presidential campaign.
