Ukraine Moves to Support IT Outsourcing during Crimea Crisis with Russia

By RACHAEL KING - Reporter

The Ukrainian Embassy to the United States will begin a campaign to support IT outsourcing to the country during its crisis with Russia. The slogan of the campaign, set to begin with an event at Ukrainian embassy in Washington, D.C. on April 29, is “Increase Profits. Support Democracy. Cloudsource to Ukraine.”

IT outsourcing has become a significant source of revenue for Ukraine. According to the embassy, the campaign is an appeal to Western businesses to increase outsourcing IT services to the Ukraine as a way to maintain global stability. “Russia’s aggression against the Ukraine seeks to destabilize the Ukrainian economy and threatens to start a new Cold War and lead to global economic recession,” the campaign’s website says, adding, “Ukraine needs your help to withstand this assault.”

..whether Ukraine is poised to become the “Silicon Valley of Eastern Europe” was part of the theme at an event last week held at the Ukrainian Institute of America, housed within the magnificent Harry F.

Ukraine Wants to Become the Silicon Valley of Europe

In the last few months, the United States has pledged to Ukraine outspoken support, military food rations, and $1 billion.

But what Ukraine could really use during its standoff with Russia, its officials say, is help from American information technology companies.

The Ukrainian Embassy in the U.S. has launched a campaign aimed at Western businesses, urging them to increase their outsourcing services to Ukraine. "It's high time for U.S. investors and IT companies to really discover Ukraine," said Olexander Motsyk, the Ukrainian ambassador to the U.S., at a presentation at the embassy Tuesday night.

The event ran like a standard business pitch, with several economic and tech experts touting the benefits of outsourcing IT jobs. The embassy had partnered with TransparentBusiness, a "cloudsourcing" provider that allows managers in other countries to remotely monitor their contractors' work in Ukraine. By growing this economic sector, Ukraine isn't looking to become the next India, the evening's featured speakers said, but rather the Silicon Valley of Europe.
