Musk activates Starlink internet service in Ukraine

After a Kyiv official urged Elon Musk to provide his embattled country with stations, Musk announced Saturday that his company’s Starlink satellite broadband service had been activated in Ukraine.

Starlink service is now operational in Ukraine,” Musk wrote on Twitter, adding that “more terminals are on the way.”

The tweet came about ten hours after Ukrainian Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov urged Musk to provide Starlink services to Ukraine, just days after the country was invaded by Russia.

“While you’re attempting to colonise Mars, Russia is attempting to occupy Ukraine!” Russian rockets attack Ukrainian civilians while your rockets successfully land from space! “We request that you provide Starlink stations to Ukraine,” Fedorov tweeted to Musk.

He also urged the billionaire to “address sane Russians to stand” against the invasion by their government.

According to NetBlocks, Ukraine has experienced “a series of significant disruptions to internet service” since Russia began military operations in the country on Thursday.

Starlink is a satellite constellation with over 2,000 satellites that aims to provide internet access to people all over the world.

On Friday, the company launched another 50 Starlink satellites into Earth’s orbit, with many more on the way.

Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that Moscow had no choice but to invade Ukraine in order to ensure Russia’s security, speaking just hours after his army crossed the borders of his former Soviet neighbour.


“What was happening left us with no choice,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said during a televised meeting with business leaders, adding that “there was no other way to proceed.”
