Amazon on Wednesday was awarded the "Distinction of the World" by Ukrainian officials for its help in aiding Kyiv in its war against Russia.
"Amazon AWS has been actively supporting Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation," the Ministry of Digital Development said according to a report by Interfax. "The company helped save our digital infrastructure during the war."
The ministry championed Amazon’s help to secure Ukraine’s "state registries and critical databases" by transferring them to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.
"And from the first days of the war, it banned registration [of] new customers from Russia and Belarus," the ministry added.
