Elon Musk activates his Starlink satellite internet service for Ukraine

Elon Musk said on Saturday that its SpaceX group had activated Starlink satellite internet service in Ukraine and that the company was sending equipment to the country, in response to a call from a Ukrainian official.

“The Starlink service is now operational. Other terminals are on the way,” said the boss of Tesla and the SpaceX astronautics group on his Twitter account.

Ten hours earlier, Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov had challenged the billionaire on the social network, asking him to provide Ukraine Starlink Stations.

“While you are trying to colonize Mars, Russia is trying to occupy Ukraine! If your rockets land successfully from space, Russian missiles will attack Ukrainian civilians! We ask you to provide Ukraine Starlink stations,” the Ukrainian official in charge of the digital sector wrote on Saturday morning.

He also asked Elon Musk to encourage “sane Russians” to oppose his government.

SpaceX on Friday launched a second delivery of about 50 Starlink satellites to bring internet connectivity to customers around the world.

On Saturday, the ability of Ukrainian users to receive the service in their territory was unclear.
