Ukrainian IT companies were ready to protect and support their land and business – as much as they could. Most of the northern and eastern regions along with the capital Kyiv are now the conflict’s hot spots. Most companies needed a week to stabilize internal processes and help team members with relocation. Around 75% of IT specialists are males, so the number of experts abroad is relatively low now. Around 5-7% of employees left Ukraine before the war started, and now this number is expected to grow.
