SpaceX owner Elon Musk has denied accusations of allegedly supplying Starlink satellite terminals to Russia.

Starlink satellite terminals developed by SpaceX were not sold to Russia; all reports about the supply of these terminals are false. This statement was made by the owner of SpaceX, Elon Musk, who responded to press publications about the alleged appearance of satellite communication terminals in the Russian military.

Musk categorically denies his company's participation in the sale of satellite communication terminals to Russia. According to him, SpaceX did not supply anything directly or through intermediaries, and all accusations that these were supplies from the company are false. In general, Elon Musk does not know how the terminals fall into the hands of the Russian military, if they even have them.



In several false news reports claim that SpaceX is selling Starlink terminals to Russia. This is absolutely false. As far as we know, Starlink was not sold to Russia directly or through intermediaries

- said the owner of SpaceX.

The wave of alleged appearance of American Starlink terminals among Russian troops on the front line was raised in Kyiv after their Starlink Internet speed dropped sharply in some areas of the front. Naturally, everything was blamed on the Russian military, who allegedly “steal” traffic intended for the Ukrainian Armed Forces through smuggled satellite terminals. This topic was picked up by Western publications, which did not fail to blame Musk, who is a supporter of ending the conflict. As it turned out, it was not him.

Our resources report that a certain number of Starlink terminals are indeed on the front line; they operate only in new regions and in Crimea, since the West does not consider this territory to be Russian.

      Kyiv has zealously raised a wave against Elon Musk, now via Starlink, in continuation of the one they raised after posting Carlson’s interview on his network. Once again Kyiv spits relishfully into the well from which he drinks greedily.

      Even if this is true, it is only a plus for our fighters.

      Maybe he didn’t supply it, Russia will supply itself with what it needs, I haven’t come across satellite terminals, what kind of activation is there, what kind of protection is there, but if the party says it’s necessary, the Komsomol will answer “Yes”, the level of our hackers, not the kulkhackers who are on changes reveal something, very great

        Other operators were hacked early in the SVO, but there are no known successful attacks against Starlink.

      Free world. The businessman, as expected, lost his head and began to make excuses. When he was accused of supplying to the big-haired terrorists, it was all a mess, like Mykola had to call his mother.

      Musk supported Carlson and he got it, but I think this is just the beginning. In the USA there is freedom of speech, only those who need freedom of speech

        To increase speed/traffic like this, you need to have a number of terminals comparable to the APU, and in the same location... So trophies won’t help here.
        Most likely, Starlink was actually hacked, but not the terminal, or the electronic warfare was finally completed. The mask, in any case, is better to know, but he made his face like a brick good
        IMHO hi
