University initiative aims to protect Ukrainian archives

Academics at Canada’s University of Alberta are aiming to help protect digital data in Ukraine under threat because of the war, writes Stephen David Cook for CBC News.

Director Natalia Khanenko-Friesen said the Ukraine Archives Rescue Team came as a result of brainstorming on how to assist colleagues in areas afflicted by the devastation of the Russian invasion. “In particular, we’re very concerned for our colleagues and for their work, which they have been pursuing in the south of Ukraine and in the eastern part of Ukraine, where we have seen the advancement of the Russian military the most.”
