Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said the country will enter the "paperless" mode on August 24, 2021, drastically curbing bureaucracy.

He announced this during the Diia Summit 2.0 within the all-Ukrainian forum "Ukraine 30. Digitization" in the city of Kyiv, an UNIAN correspondent reported.

"On August 24, Ukraine will enter the 'paperless' mode, as we promised. No papers for public authorities, no one will demand from a citizen of Ukraine any papers or certificates for the provision of public services," the president said.
