Elon Musk Activates Starlink Satellites in Ukraine

The line city of Saudi Arabia

According to foreign reports, on Saturday, Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov asked SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk for help, hoping that SpaceX could build a Starlink satellite network base station to help improve Ukraine’s satellite network access services .

Mykhailo Fedorov tweeted that while you are trying to colonize Mars, Russia is trying to occupy Ukraine! While your rocket landed successfully from space, Russian rockets were hitting Ukrainian civilians! We request that you provide Ukraine with a Starlink satellite network base station. 

As for Mykhailo Fedorov’s call for help, Elon Musk also responded on Twitter, pointing out that the Starlink service has been launched in Ukraine, and more user terminal equipment is also on the way.


Connection with Starlink satellite ground base stations

At this stage, due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the two sides have disrupted the network in some areas of Ukraine due to the war. At present, it is urgent to restore the communication network in the relevant areas through other means. 

With the efforts of SpaceX, Elon Musk has put thousands of Starlink satellites into Earth orbit and started to provide networking services in some areas. With the help of these Starlink satellites, massive amounts of information can be quickly transmitted anywhere on Earth without the need for traditional fiber optic cables. 

Therefore, through the transmission of these Starlink satellite ground base stations, it is possible to provide connection and transmission of data to areas of Ukraine that have lost Internet access service.

So far, SpaceX has put more than 1,700 of Starlink’s satellites into Earth orbit. Among them, some satellites will pass over Ukraine. However, Ukraine does not have a base station to receive the Starlink satellite network signal, and its closest ground base station is currently located in Wola Krobowska, Poland.
