Ukrainian military intelligence confirms the appearance of Starlink satellite terminals in the Russian military

Ukrainian military intelligence has confirmed that the Russian army has Starlink satellite communication terminals on the line of combat contact. This was stated by the official representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Andrey Yusov.

The Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine confirms the appearance of Starlink terminals at Russian military terminals. According to Yusov, this is not yet widespread, but the number of recorded cases is growing and may become widespread in the near future. However, he did not go into detail about where and when the operation of Elon Musk’s SpaceX terminals was recorded.



Yes, there have been recorded cases of Russian occupiers using these devices. This is starting to become systemic.

Yusov said.

Meanwhile, on Ukrainian resources they are swearing at Elon Musk at the top of their lungs, calling him a “traitor” who surrendered Ukraine. One gets the feeling that Musk should supply terminals exclusively to Ukraine, free of charge, and turn off all other countries. The Ukrainian military, in turn, says that in the coming months they may have problems due to the appearance of terminals in the Russian army.

Russian resources confirm the appearance of Starlink terminals at the front; they are available from volunteer forces that independently purchase them abroad. They work only in the territory of new regions that were previously part of Ukraine; they do not work in the rest of Russia.

The fact is that in a 20-kilometer zone on the front line it is impossible to distinguish which side the terminal belongs to. This allows the Russian military on the front lines to also use Starlink terminals. Therefore, either everyone works, or no one works.

          No, but what’s really surprising? These terminals are sold as a civilian item. The fact that a Ukrainian adapted them for his own purposes does not mean that we cannot do the same.

            I confirm, we can... the terminals are sold, already activated (FM business), they are expensive (to the point of lemon), but they work on the outskirts, on LBS and in Kaliningrad.
            Our FSBs are very interested in the motives for purchases.)

        The answer is, to put it mildly, strange. Each terminal probably has its own identifier and its location can be determined with an accuracy of a couple of meters. Not to mention traffic control.

            Apparently they made some money from leopards. There is probably a common cash register with bonuses. An extra drone with a tank, or a tank for an attack aircraft for night attacks, additional non-standard means of communication - nothing is superfluous. An additional copter with an 8K camera for reconnaissance. In general, everything that is not provided for by the state. For example, many people are entitled to light armor, but if you want a warrior, it’s for your own. Optical, laser, or collimator sight, for example. If not a sniper, then who will provide optics? But this may be a bad example. Still, I'm still on the couch

            They can connect to the terminals, but the traffic is encrypted. Of course, Ukraine can compile a register of all its Starlinks and edit it promptly. Then they will block the work on our part.

                  What does the transmission medium and data encryption have to do with it? The transmission medium is the atmosphere and near space. This has nothing to do with the ability to decrypt traffic from a specific terminal. I would think 10 times before taking this Starlink to the front line. All this "impossibility of determination" fuss may be an intelligence game. Fools are now rushing to place sets in their positions. Essentially screaming "WE'RE HERE - FUCK US." It’s like in all the movies they play nonsense about the fact that it takes 2-3 minutes to detect a phone :)))

                Traffic can be encrypted in the user's terminal device (laptop/tablet/smartphone) connected externally to the Starlink router. For example, most well-known IP telephony systems have this option.

                  Another thing is that if the registration data of a Starlink terminal located near the LBS is not in the list of APU terminals, the Starlink operator, by agreement with the Ukrainian side, has the technical ability to deactivate such terminals.

                    Baikals and Elbrus have technological standards of 28 nm. Russia is still developing its own 28 nm semiconductor technology. The Taiwanese TSMC factory, where Baikals and Elbrus were once made, did not even ship the processors that had already been paid for and manufactured due to the imminent sanctions. Semiconductor factories in mainland China are not eager to expose themselves to secondary sanctions due to modest Russian volumes of processor orders. Previously produced reserves of Baikal and Elbrus are unlikely to be sufficient for the needs of the Northern Military District.
                    Therefore, besides Intel and AMD for parallel import, there is no other.

                        And let’s hope that the Russian technology for producing 28 nm multi-core processors, at least in small-scale production for critical industries to begin with, will soon start working.
