Ukraine Receives Equipment They Requested From Elon Musk, Musk Responds

Ukraine has already the received equipment that they requested from billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk over the weekend, according to one the country’s top officials.

“Starlink — here,” Mykhailo Fedorov, Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, tweeted along with a picture of the equipment. “Thanks, @elonmusk.”

“You are most welcome,” Musk responded.

Musk said late on Saturday that SpaceX’s Starlink satellite broadband service was now available in Ukraine with more terminals en route to the country.

Musk made the remark on social media in response to a tweet from Mykhailo Fedorov, the Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, who tweeted: “@elonmusk, while you try to colonize Mars — Russia try to occupy Ukraine! While your rockets successfully land from space — Russian rockets attack Ukrainian civil people! We ask you to provide Ukraine with Starlink stations and to address sane Russians to stand.”

Ukraine highlighted the tweet, writing: Dear @elonmusk, Ukraine needs your support. Your stance and your actions matter. An appeal by our Minister of Digital Transformation here.”

“Starlink service is now active in Ukraine,” Musk responded. “More terminals en route.”

“Starlink provides high-speed, low-latency broadband internet across the globe. Within each coverage area, orders are fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis,” the company says. “Using advanced satellites in a low orbit, Starlink enables video calls, online gaming, streaming, and other high data rate activities that historically have not been possible with satellite internet.”

“Starlink is ideally suited for areas where connectivity has been unreliable or completely unavailable,” the company added. “People across the globe are using Starlink to gain access to education, health services and even communications support during natural disasters.”

The plea from the Ukrainian government comes after Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a full scale invasion into Ukraine late last week that has included heavy fighting throughout the country.
