Microsoft has agreed to extend its free technology support for Ukraine until the end of next year

The company said it will provide nearly $100 million in additional technology assistance, bringing its total support to Ukraine to more than $400 million since the crisis began in February.

The support “will ensure that government agencies, critical infrastructure and other sectors in Ukraine can continue to run their digital infrastructure and serve citizens through the Microsoft Cloud,” Microsoft Corp President Brad Smith wrote in a blog post .

As the Russian invasion of the country drags on, Ukraine is relying on more Western technological support.

A number of companies across Europe and North America have mobilized to provide assistance to the Ukrainian authorities and people, including Elon Musk’s Starlink.

Earlier in June, Microsoft also said it was making significant cuts to its business in Russia, joining the list of companies that have reduced their exposure or pulled out of the country in response to the invasion.
