A shipment of terminals from Elon Musk’s satellite internet service Starlink have arrived in Ukraine, according to a top Ukrainian official.
Ukrianian vice prime minister Mykhailo Fedorov shared an image of a truckload of Starlink terminals late Monday, writing, “Starlink — here. Thanks, @elonmusk.”
“You are most welcome,” the SpaceX and Tesla CEO replied.
Starlink terminals receive internet from SpaceX’s 2,000 satellites, allowing users to get online even if their service has been disconnected.
Fedorov first requested Musk expand the service to Ukraine through Twitter on Saturday as the Russian military laid siege to the country.
“@elonmusk, while you try to colonize Mars — Russia try to occupy Ukraine!” Fedorov wrote on Saturday. “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.”
