    State Archival Service of Ukraine even under the war conditions continues the communication with foreign partners, regarding reaching agreements to ensure the backup storage of digital copies of National Archival Fond’s documents and a reference apparatus to them on the cloud storages of such partners.  

    On March 25, 2022, a signing of Agreement on the temporary transfer of documents between the State Archival Service of Ukraine and the National Archives of United Kingdom took place online. From the Ukrainian side the Agreement was signed by the Head of the State Archival Service of Ukraine Anatolii Khromov and from the side of the United Kingdom by the Chief Executive and Keeper of the National Archives of the United Kingdom Jeff James.

    This is the first Agreement of such kind, whose aim is to store backup copies of digital materials of state archival institutions of Ukraine on the cloud storages created by the National Archives of the United Kingdom, in case of their possible loss, due to the war of russia against Ukraine.     

    Cloud storage for Ukrainian state archival institutions is created by British colleagues for free, on a separate server, which will allow the storage and independently copying of digital content by all of the state archival institutions of Ukraine.   

    Technical assistance in organizing this online-meeting and signing the Agreement was provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and the Embassy of Ukraine in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
