Zelensky's office reacted to Starlink Internet restriction for Ukrainian military drones

Advisor to the head of Zelensky's office, Mikhail Podolyak, sharply criticized the decision of SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell, who said that the company would restrict access to the Starlink Internet for the Ukrainian military.

The essence of the restriction is that the Armed Forces of Ukraine will not be able to use satellite Internet to control the military drones. According to the president of the American company, according to the agreements, the Ukrainian army was to use access to the satellite network exclusively for communications. However, SpaceX management is against their product being used for offensive purposes.



In turn, Podolyak, commenting on Shotwell's statement, noted that during the year of "resistance" of his country in an American company, they had to decide for themselves which side they are on: the right to a free life, which Ukraine "defends", or the right to "capture territory and murder.

An adviser to the head of Zelensky's office recommended Gwynne Shotwell to decide, as he put it, on "a specific option."

In this case, it is worth recalling that Elon Musk's company provides the APU with terminals and access to the Starlink network free of charge. Last year, the billionaire wanted to turn off his satellite internet if Kyiv didn't start paying for the service, as his company had already suffered more than $80 million in losses.

At that time, Musk collected enough unflattering epithets from the Kyiv authorities. Meanwhile, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have not lost access to Starlink.

Time will tell how SpaceX management will react to the "thank you" from Podolyak. At the same time, this is not the first time that a Ukrainian politician has been marked by deliberately boorish statements. Earlier, after an attack on Iranian military facilities by an "unknown" state, an adviser to Zelensky's office wrote on the social network that "Ukraine warned ..."

      Yes, not a fig. You also say that Musk is an independent billionaire.
      For a whole year they "did not notice" that Kyiv uses Starlink to control drones, and suddenly they saw the light ...
      They just start to slowly throw Zelensky.
      They organize a heroic death for him at the hands of vile Russian hirelings.
      And with his successor they will already begin to discuss concessions for the world.

    to restrict Starlink internet for Ukrainian military drones
    Here, along the way, Russia began to react to this, I heard the equipment appeared and calculated the stations and wet them .. Well, we can also disable satellites .. Musk is a businessman, he perfectly calculated that Russia is coming out on top in politics and military terms ..
    Well, we'll figure it out with Mask. negative

      Musk, first of all, is not an enemy of Russia. He is a businessman and a person who, being closely connected with space, respects the space past of our country very much. If they didn’t put pressure on him, he would be happy to be friends with Russia.
      I imagine how it burns with the realization that both he (a free man) and his business (a free man) are so dependent on the intervention of his government.

        Musk is a rabid dog, his hands are full of Russian blood. The more he's nailed to the ground, anyone, the better. I do not distinguish anything from the Scholtsy, Podolyaks and other trash, whether they are deceived, neutral or ideological.

    It looks like Musk was seriously threatened by his satellites to "land" if they were used for military purposes.
    In total, this should have been done a year ago, no matter how many people and equipment were saved ....

      It looks like Musk was seriously threatened by his satellites to "land" if they were used for military purposes.

      Elon Musk's father says he fears "something might happen" to his son:
      “I’m really afraid that something might happen to Elon, even though there are about 100 guards around him,” Errol warned, noting that his son is "a little naive about the enemies he makes, especially with the Twitter files."
      In the past year alone, his home has been broken into four times and is now “fully secure” with a live fence, nine XNUMX/XNUMX security cameras that Musk can access from his phone, and “XNUMX/XNUMX surveillance by heavily armed guards."

    what a sorry bunch of people these ukrainians are, i am easten european myself but find that people from Ukraine are prone to aggression, hot headedness and plain stupidity. Years ago in the 90-si was watching ukranian parliamentarians beat each other up. Now their elite lead their nation down the path of ruination, letting themselves be used agains the Russians. And their people are suffering greatly, all this to prop up the declining Angolosaxon/Hudaic empire....
