Immediately following the Russian invasion on the 24th of last month, the Ukrainian government requested aid from all over the world. He also turned to a specific individual, not the state, for help, and that was Elon Musk. Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Fedorov directly mentioned Musk on the 26th and begged, “I ask Ukraine to provide Starlink, so that Ukraine can fight once morest mad Russians.”

At that time, Ukraine was suffering from internet network failures. Anxiety and confusion have increased as Russia paralyzed communications with strikes at key facilities and cyberattacks.

Ukraine has hoped for SpaceX’s Internet business, Starlink. Starlink is a project that provides Internet networks through small cluster satellites. Musk thinks that if you use the space internet, you can use the internet even in the Amazon or the Sahara. SpaceX has launched more than 2,000 satellites so far, and plans to launch an additional 12,000 by 2027.

In Ukraine’s ‘SOS’, Musk took action in 10 hours. “Starlink has opened in Ukraine, and more terminals are being opened,” Musk said. When countries are tapping the calculator over the diplomatic benefits of participating in Russia’s sanctions, companies have reached out to help faster than the state.

Musk, however, said that the Starlink satellite internet service would not stop broadcasting from Russian media. On the same day, Musk tweeted, “I’ve been asked by some governments (not Ukraine) to block the transmission of Russian news, but Starlink won’t do that unless they point a gun at them.” He added, “I’m sorry that I grew up with an absolutist freedom of the press.”
