American media: Elon Musk in 2022 disrupted the attack of the Crimea by Ukrainian underwater drones

In 2022, Space X owner Elon Musk secretly shut down the Starlink communications system off the coast of the Crimean Peninsula. As a result, an attack on Crimea by Ukrainian submarines was thwarted. drones. CNN reports this, citing a new biography of Musk authored by Walter Isaacson.

According to the biographer, Ukrainian drones have almost approached the base of the Black Sea fleet Russia, but suddenly the connection was lost. After that, underwater Drones washed ashore. In fact, it was Elon Musk who thwarted the attack on Crimea by Ukrainian underwater drones, reports the American media.



As Isaacson writes in the businessman’s biography, cited by the American press, Musk was very afraid that Russia would use nuclear weapons in response to the attack on Crimea. weapon. Therefore, he decided to turn off his communication system for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. According to CNN, Musk has become a very powerful player in Ukraine. Many American officials could not ignore his attitude to what was happening.

Starlink was not designed to fight in wars. This was done so that people could watch Netflix, relax, connect to the Internet at school and do good peaceful things rather than drone strikes

- Musk said about the attack on the Crimea that was being prepared by Ukraine.

The billionaire is known for his critical position regarding Western support for the armed conflict between Ukraine and Russia. He proposed recognizing Crimea as Russian, and in the remaining territories - in the Donbass, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, and holding repeated referendums under the supervision of observers.

Until recently, Musk insisted that a peaceful settlement was the only and best way to end the Ukrainian conflict. However, Starlink still operates in Ukraine, providing communications to Ukrainian military forces on the battlefield. Without it, the APU would have had much more difficult.

        Well, they use it, but the pings started there in a very wide range, you can’t play online shooters, and Musk seems to have nothing to do with it :-)

        they use it on the mainland,
        but on sea drones and that they fly to Russia, they don’t have Starlinks, but other plates, a hexagonal shape like Kymeta

        Now it’s clear why they don’t install Starlink

      If he really did something, thank you so much! Man pomlg the real thing and not chatter.
      It is unlikely that he will be able to completely turn off the network, he simply will not be allowed to do this.

      for those who are not in the know, underwater radio communication is only at ELF, and FM radio, mobile phones and especially Starlink are not received there at all...

        By the way, there was an article here a year ago, echoing this one.

        There are photos of ejected drones, and Starlink antennas at the stern, and a call to fight the adversaries by jamming this Starlink ...

        The guidance system uses a GPS signal, some models have automatic GNSS and an inertial navigation system when diving when GPS is not working.

          Well, I don’t know, in developed countries, like the USSR, the problem of underwater navigation was solved, because they somehow hope for satellite positioning in a real conflict, this is a so-so idea, even if the country has its own such system. A lot of things can happen...

        mobile phones, and even more so, starlink does not catch it either from the word at all ...

        And why is there a connection with an underwater drone, there is no crew there.

      He has no time to study the history and mentality of our people, otherwise he would have realized that this would not have happened. This can only happen if they are the first to throw nuclear weapons at us.

      If this is true, then Ilosha is certainly great. But he needs to be careful. These non-humans are capable of not just anything, but absolutely everything. Complete recklessness.

      When you need to justify your madness or stupidity, then you need to show even more madness, or even more stupidity, everything is like Khakhlov, or such a state as Biden
