Not too long ago, we revealed that Elon Musk jumped in the help of Ukraine amidst the attacks that the country sees from Russia.
New reports are showing how tech billionaire Elon Musk was praised on Saturday for responding to the Ukrainian government’s plea to provide SpaceX’s Starlink satellite broadband service so that Ukrainians could access the internet as Russian military forces invaded 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 the following:
“@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.”
Check out the response that Musk had:
“Starlink service is now active in Ukraine. More terminals en route.”
Mike Cernovich, political commentator, stated this:
“Elon Musk is Iron Man. The West sees all conflict now as a 3 act comic book movie.”
“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.”
Now, Ukraine is showing gratitude to Musk for the moves that he has been making.
