Head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine: We need to agree with foreign countries on the financing of the Starlink satellite communications system

Ukrainian officials confirm problems with Elon Musk's Starlink satellite communications system.

Recall that a few weeks ago, the founder of SpaceX said that Ukrainian Starlink traffic is hundreds of times higher than the traffic that is typical for civilian use of this communication system. According to Elon Musk, his company can no longer provide its services to Ukraine for free. Then there were reports of a change of mind by Elon Musk, also that the Pentagon would finance the provision of Starlink systems for Ukraine.

Ultimately, between 1300 and 2000 satellite sets in Ukraine were turned off. Their total number in this country is estimated at about 20 thousand.

In this regard, the Minister of Defense of the Kyiv regime, Aleksey Reznikov, in an interview with Western journalists, said that the Ukrainian authorities were going to turn to foreign partners in order to finance the work of Starlink satellite Internet in Ukraine.

Reznikov frankly stated that now the Ukrainian authorities are busy seeking funding for the satellite communications system from Elon Musk's company.

Ukrainian Minister of Defense:

SpaceX is currently providing free services to a limited number of satellite communications suites. We pay some of them. But we need to agree on financing from foreign partners in this regard.

Recall that the other day, US President Joe Biden announced the need to "check Elon Musk for contacts with other countries and governments." It sounded like a warning to the American billionaire that if he does not unquestioningly follow the will of the American regime, then they will find justice for him. The country is democratic...

    That's the problem - they don't even know how to SAY - "we'll do it." Only "give, give, give!"

      They don't have to say "do it". They will just give everything. No matter how our "wheels" and Crimea are surrendered, with the wording about the impossibility of supply.

      Eh ...
      And remember, there was a power -
      The Poles and Teutons were scared.
      And every dog ​​was trembling,
      Seeing our squadrons.
      Life turned us in the backsides
      Fate-villain spread.
      Oh, how are you kidding me,
      Oh, how did you fagot!

      After all, the industry was the most powerful, everything was there. Until they believed the American stories about self-sufficiency and independence.
      Yes, and rockets, and tanks, and what they just did not do. So after all not Ukraine did! Not even the Ukrainian SSR. The whole country worked so that Nikolaev built ships, and rockets were made in Dnepropetrovsk.
      No, believe in your self-sufficiency! Well, how can, for example, the same "KamAZ" by itself, localized in Chelny, produce trucks? Hundreds and hundreds of subcontractors across the country are working to ensure that the conveyor works in Chelny.
      So Ukraine is worth NOTHING without us.

      That is why it has become a beggar country.

      And we got into debt in the 90s, and Greece is in such debt that all the Parthenons are not enough to pay off. I understand when there is a crisis in the country and all that... But turning life on other people's money into a habit is a dangerous thing. They ask for money for everything - from heating to the Internet. Now they will drive the grain - they will also ask for food.
      They will not understand, dumb-headed ones, that NOBODY will feed and support them just like that.
      Keep in mind, dear Shura, I don't intend to feed you for free. For every vitamin I feed you, I will demand many small favors from you. (With)
      In the case of Ukraine, these services are oh! what small!

        Well, look, Igor, Ukraine, for example, produced diesel locomotives. The country is certainly large, but it definitely does not need them in such quantities. Further, Ukraine does not need Antonov's giants in FIG, they are needed, for example, to quickly transfer cargo from Khabarovsk to Kaliningrad, such a waste of fuel is justified. The market of Ukraine is Russia, Parshin explained why a long time ago. Well, to hell with him, independent, but initially Ukraine did not have its own Ukrainian interests. The same Kuchma, who was considered pro-Russian, having Soviet awards, launched an attack on the rights of the autonomy of Crimea and was very successful, although we agreed on other conditions, or rather, chatted us to stay with Ukraine because Russia did not take it then. Crimea was originally a state within a state.
        It's funny, but those who consider themselves Ukrainian patriots are grave diggers of the independent.

          Crimea is still a state within a state. The feds help with large infrastructure, and the rest is all their own or with “cunning” Russian or Ukrainian or Turkish roots. And for most brands, we are a gray area (but it is immediately clear which company has overseas founders, and which has domestic ones).

          Well, those who invest in infrastructure do not lose money, we build a lot, I have never seen such a boom in my 43 years, and some of this construction is annoying, although it was also annoying in Ukraine. Here it was necessary for Mr. Konstantinov to solder a house in the center of Simferopol, this is our head of parliament, he soldered and did not care that he cut off a piece of the Suvorov redoubt. We have beyond Simferopol, to the north, the steppe, I don’t want to build.

    We need to negotiate with foreign countries to finance the Starlink satellite communications system

    - "Submit to Starlink satellite communication" ...

    Why not finally demand full allowance from matches, soap, food, pension payments and ending with heavy military equipment?

      Good idea, Gennady. They don't even need pensions.
      Why does a conscript soldier need money, for example? Go to the cinema on dismissal (if there is where to go on dismissal lol)? Full government support. They will feed you, they will give you a barracks in a warm barracks, you will go to the bathhouse to wash, you will put on shoes and clothes, they will give you a machine gun in your hands. The main thing is to defend the Motherland.

      So here too. Ukraine protects American interests - let them feed it, clothe it, keep it warm. All in all, full state(departmental)provision. Why jumpy money?
      So, very few things reach Ukraine, and if America also supplies Egg soap to Ukraine so that they don’t get lice, then there’s absolutely nothing for the hot boys to think about.
      And cover their coffins not with the Ukrainian, but with the American flag... It was not for nothing that grandfather said that there are 54 states in America - that will be one of the four extra ones.
      Look, Georgia tried to be Georgia...

    Musk is a bamboo fool, he “signed up” in a fit of pseudo-heroism to defend Pig Democracy, now he will have to provide Pig Reich with the Internet!

      Elon Musk is not in vain the richest capitalist in the world. By signing he did the following.
      1. I promoted the system very strongly. How many talk about it because of this fact.
      2. Showed excellent applicability of the system for military operations in the face of active opposition. Which greatly prevents the Pentagon from justifying Starlink's analogue in Lockheed called BlackJack. Why do you need a new military-style system, if the civilian one laid down remarkably well on all the vaunted electronic warfare.
      3.As you can see, there is an active movement to pay for all terminals, they are already paying for a part and are preparing to pay for everything. A major client with tens of thousands of terminals, to whom they roll out a military price tag. For 3.5 thousand dollars from the terminal per month, instead of 100 dollars from civilian consumers. winked

    No matter what they say, Starlink was able to turn the tide of the special. operations when the enemies saw all our troops in full view thanks to online data transmission. All this was obvious back in 16. So I wonder if we were able to at least refuse Iridium or are we still forced to purchase satellite communications services from them? It's time to name all over the country the names and positions of those who failed in our country to create our own satellite communications system. Yesterday I read that Roskosmos spent a huge amount on the creation of a film with Peresild. How can this film help our armed forces now? But those who are responsible for satellite communications, that's what they have been doing all this time. Fashion shows.
