Starlink is a space-based system that SpaceX has been building for years to bring internet access to underserved areas of the world. Musk’s venture could help Ukraine stay connected despite troop advancement in the country.

The development came soon after Ukraine had requested Musk to help with the satellites as the nation battles a devastating invasion by neighbouring Russia.

Fedorov had tweeted, “@elonmusk, while you try to colonise Mars — Russia tries 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”.

As Russia continues its onslaught on Ukraine, major parts of the country have faced internet outages as well as disruptions.
