Zelensky appeared in Paris as a hologram and compared Russian forces to the negative characters in Star Wars.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky appeared at a technology conference in Paris on Thursday in the form of a hologram, referring to the “Star Wars” and World War II, writes The Guardian.

The Kyiv leader told a crowd of hundreds at the VivaTech trade fair that Ukraine offers technology companies a unique chance to rebuild the country as a fully digital democracy.

Volodymyr Zelenski asked for help with the terms of the loan-lease, an arrangement in which the aid is provided free of charge, but with the understanding that the hardware will be returned.

“It is unusual for presidents or heads of government to use a hologram to address people, but this is not the only aspect of the ‘Star Wars’ that we are putting into practice,” the Ukrainian head of state said.

Volodymyr Zelensky also stressed that “we will defeat the empire”, comparing Russian forces with the negative characters in the “Star Wars” franchise.

Zelenski added that his government will present a specific plan for digital governance at a conference in Switzerland in the coming weeks.

“No other country in the world will give you such a chance to use the most advanced technologies at the state level,” said the President of Ukraine. “It is an experiment and a digital revolution and the modernization of the current system at the same time,” he added.

“It’s no longer science fiction that artificial intelligence (AI) is as smart as humans. These technological possibilities can change lives. They can simplify the relationship between government and people: without bureaucracy and without corruptionZelenski added.
