TOKYO -- Ukrainian startup MacPaw used to be known for publishing apps that clean and speed up Mac computers. These days, the outfit is busy designing a program that blocks Russian surveillance.

"Every action makes a huge difference, and this is why we need tech specialists and companies to take action, too," MacPaw CEO and founder Oleksandr Kosovan told Nikkei, as Ukraine defends itself against the invasion by larger neighbor Russia.
