Founded in Ukraine in 1991, ELEKS – now a global enterprise – has proudly contributed to the growth and prosperity of this great country for more than 30 years. We have expanded beyond Ukraine’s borders with 18 development centres and offices in 13 counties and three continents. But, more than ever, we stand in solidarity with our nation.
We have cooperated with the army and partner funds to give our country the means to fight back against our aggressors. And we will continue to stand with Ukraine until its future will be secured.
ELEKS’ contribution to Ukraine’s defence has been marked by the multiple awards from the Minister of Defense of Ukraine, presented to us by Colonel Oleksandr Pravdyvets – head of expert group Directorate of Digitalisation, Digital Development, Digital Transformations and Cybersecurity in the Defense Sector of the Ministry of Defense.
This award is a symbol for us of what’s possible if organisations are galvanised to bolster Ukraine’s incredible military, and we will continue to strengthen our financial and technical support of our home country as far as we can.
ELEKS’ IT specialists have provided expert consultation, services and equipment that have strengthened our country’s defence. This kind of partnership is priceless for Ukraine’s military department
Two years ago, we began working with the Come Back Alive Foundation. And, since the Russian invasion began, we’ve targeted resources at up-scaling its development. We believe that these efforts, along with our continued support of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, will help to secure our nation’s victory and a bright future for its people.
The ELEKS team is our long-term partner and a great example of what an organisation can do to support Ukraine’s Armed Forces. We started working together long before the full-scale invasion began, facilitating air defence modernisation projects and purchasing and implementing mobile surveillance solutions for the army and trained military personnel.
As it stands, ELEKS is donating 114 000 UAH a day to the fund. That’s simply incredible!
When Estonian NGO, Heroiam Slava, initiated a purchase of two high-quality Threod EOS C VTOL surveillance drones for the Special Operations Forces, ELEKS donated €252,000 EUR, covering the biggest part of this fundraising. The balance of €133,000 EUR was raised by Estonia’s incredible citizens and businesses.
Jaak Ennuste, Co-founder of Heroiam Slava and IT entrepreneur, explains, “Ukraine needs eyes in the sky to expel its occupiers. Threod is one of the world’s leading surveillance drones, and it has already proven itself on the battlefield for 7 – 8 years”.
The sincerest thank you to the whole ELEKS team and the people and businesses of Estonia, who’ve supported the purchase of Estonian Threod surveillance drones for the Ukrainian Special Operations Forces. We named our ‘birds’, which have the power to disclose our enemies’ coordinates, Elvy and Ay Petri. Elvy in honour of Elvy Kalep, the first Estonian female pilot, and Ay Petri, a significant landmark in Crimea. We know they will return home soon!
ELEKS supplies the Armed Forces with software and equipment, cars, drones and more. We collect direct requests for the necessary goods, buy and send them to the locations, where they are of the highest need. In that way our help finds the most effective application. Also, the company’s regular donations cover other spends by the Armed Forces.
We allocate a monthly budget for and making daily donations to charitable funds that directly support the Armed Forces of Ukraine. ELEKS’ position is to help Ukraine fight and gain victory as much as we can, both from the company and its’ specialists’ joint efforts.
A group was created to offer targeted assistance to the military. More than 50 ELEKS specialists joined the Armed Forces as of October ‘22, and they are given everything needed to keep them safe: bulletproof vests, helmets, high-quality first-aid kits and more.
We created a volunteers chat for around 400 global teammates. The Ukrainian arm of the team posts requests for resources, and colleagues in Europe and the USA help source, buy and ship it to Ukraine. So far, this has gotten cars, military equipment and other vital resources onto the field where they are needed most.
