As a result of Russian aggression in Ukraine, 25% of fixed networks are damaged today, and 4,300 mobile base stations have been destroyed or damaged, Deputy Prime Minister for Innovation, Education, Science and Technology Development, Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov announced on Wednesday.

"As of today, 25% of fixed networks are damaged. This is a fact. More than 4,000 mobile communication stations have been destroyed or damaged," Fedorov said at the presentation of electronic communications until 2030.
