Zelenskiy: “Innovation and politics are two different worlds in Ukraine”

Ukrainian politicians and tech people seem to barely understand each other, newly elected President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on May 23 during a 20-minute speech at Kyiv’s annual tech conference iForum.

“Innovation and politics are two different worlds in Ukraine,” the president said.

Local politicians know nothing about information technologies and talk about them only when they need to create a positive image of themselves, Zelenskiy said.

“The vocabulary of a Ukrainian politician consists of several words that they use when talking about technologies: innovation, digitalization, Hyperloop, and Elon Musk,” he continued.
