One of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in Europe, WhiteBIT, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine signed a memorandum of understanding and cooperation. As stated in the document, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine will provide timely and reliable information to citizens of Ukraine who are seeking temporary refuge in foreign countries because of the war. WhiteBIT will provide the necessary technical capabilities to cover information on the relevant resources.
Additionally, WhiteBIT will provide comprehensive organizational support and assistance to the Ukrainian consular service in countries where the company’s offices are based. WhiteBIT will also support the Foreign Ministry’s Anti-Crisis Center and the 24-hour call center to provide advice to Ukrainian citizens. The memorandum will also provide support for the technical equipment of mobile teams of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
According to WhiteBIT, the company will also aid in creating barrier-free access for hard of hearing people to MFA’s foreign diplomatic institutions and their services.
“In times of war and the difficult trials that Ukraine is facing, we at the company believe that
business organizations must support and help the state and our citizens. And our cooperation
with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is a vivid example of a successful and effective collaboration between a business and governmental institutions. WhiteBIT has offices in foreign countries, we have the opportunities, resources and a desire to help Ukrainians who have been forced to move abroad. In addition, we have technical, informational and IT potential, which I am sure will be useful for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ukraine, and will help bring victory of Ukraine closer, “said WhiteBIT CEO Volodymyr Nosov.

Ukrainian governmental services. Particularly, the cryptocurrency exchange has recently
