Therefore, Yaroslav Schevych, сontinuing the initiative “Karpilovka line” (//karpylivka.rv.ua), with help of the history teacher T. M. Stepanets, local school director V. V. Galushko and N. Y. Martynyuk, was able to deliver the manuscript to the Digital Country Company for the digitization.
“Pleasantly surprised by the speed of work and its quality. 35 pages of the Chronicle were transferred to the digital format only in one hour! The value of the work was accessible and close to the cost of tickets to Kyiv. Now, thanks to the electronic format, the work on the manuscript will be faster. We plan to publish original manuscript online, translate it into Ukrainian and republish with support of the “Ukrainian Publishers and Booksellers promotion and popularization of historical research Support Program in Rivne” for using during the school lessons and distribution in museums “- says Yaroslav.
