The face recognition system will search social media profiles and then compare photos of dead soldiers with photos posted on their profiles.
Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation will inform families about the deaths of Russian soldiers killed in the invasion of Ukraine, reports Militarnyi, citing Interior Minister Mykhailo Fedorov.

Artificial intelligence technology will be used for this purpose. The face recognition system will search social media profiles and then compare photos of dead soldiers with pictures posted on their profiles over a lifetime.
“With artificial intelligence, we search the accounts of deceased Russian soldiers on social networks, using photos of corpses, in order to inform their friends and relatives about their deaths,” Fedorov wrote.
This is made possible by the use of face recognition technology to sign documents to generate a COVID certificate initiated by Diia. It is a mobile application, portal, and brand of Ukrainian e-government. Launched in 2020, the Diia app is designed to allow Ukrainians to use digital documents on smartphones. The Diia portal provides access to more than 50 government services.
