The world’s richest man is plagued by the Russo-Ukraine war in which he plays a big part.
Elon Musk is facing one of the biggest threats to the world today. Elon Musk has spent the past two weeks talking about the Russian war in Ukraine.
Indeed, since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24, Tesla (TSLA) CEO Gate Tesla Inc. reports that Ukrainians have provided significant assistance in the form of Starlink. Starlink is an independent satellite Internet access service developed by the company SpaceX.
Starlink is used by civilians especially in areas under attack by Russia and in areas where infrastructure has been destroyed. Government officials and armed forces protect the service because it is safe.
Sterlink is helping Ukraine’s military drones destroy Russian tanks and army trucks. The drones are equipped with anti-tank grenades to be launched at the target. In the face of Russian attacks against Ukrainian infrastructure, Starlink has become the only means of communication for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
As Elon Musk posted on Twitter on October 14, Starlink is the Ukrainian military’s primary communications system on the war front. If anyone else wants this job, please be my guest Starlink is the only com system still working on the war front. Russia is actively trying to kill Starlink. For the sake of security, SpaceX has diverted massive resources into defence.
Ukrainian officials have confirmed the important role currently played by Starlink in this war, including messages. Starlink allows the Ukrainian authorities to control part of the narrative of this war, at a time when they are defeating Russia in key areas of the country.
