Peskov: Starlink terminals are not officially supplied to Russia and therefore cannot be officially used

The statement by the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov that Starlink satellite communication terminals are not officially supplied to Russia and are not officially used by the country’s armed forces was distributed by the country’s largest news agencies on Monday morning.

The Kremlin official stated in particular:



This is not a certified system with us, therefore it cannot be officially supplied here and is not supplied officially, and accordingly it cannot be used officially in any way.

Thus, he answered a question from journalists about whether Russia uses the Starlink terminal on the battlefield or not.

Here, perhaps, we should not intrude into the discussion between the Kyiv regime and entrepreneur Musk

- noted Peskov.

Previously, statements by Ukrainian propagandists were spreading online that Russian volunteer groups were freely using Starlink terminals. Statements about the supply of satellite communication terminals to Russia have been repeatedly denied by the owner of the Space X development company, Elon Musk.

Musk’s accusations of indirect support for the Russian Armed Forces have clearly political overtones against the backdrop of Tucker Carlson’s increasingly popular interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which was published on Musk’s social network “X” (ex-Twitter, banned in Russia), and which contributes to the growth of popularity Republican presidential candidate.

As is known, Starlink terminals were transferred to Ukraine and are used by the Ukrainian military to control drones.
It should be emphasized that Elon Musk himself has repeatedly spoken out in favor of settling the conflict between Russia and Ukraine diplomatically. He also insisted that his satellite systems were not designed to fight on the Ukrainian side.

The standard Starlink kit has the following features and components:

Antenna - electronic phased array antenna.
Orientation - motorized, self-orienting.
Environmental rating - IP54.
Operating temperature - -30 °C to +50 °C
Average power consumption is 50-75 W.

    What's the problem...??? Even if we use Starlink, this still needs to be proven... And we still won’t believe your evidence just as you don’t believe ours... am

        Whether we use a captured Starlink or a Starlink acquired through a gray scheme is the second question, the first question is why Russia still does not have its own analogue of Starlink, or a system superior to it...

      The problem is that this is not certified equipment and who knows what capabilities the enemy will get when using it. A few days ago there was a response from the Moscow Region, where exactly this reason was indicated as prohibiting use of Starlink terminals in the Russian Armed Forces. At the same time, the Ministry of Defense admits that they are used in volunteer units.

      The official opinion has been expressed, that’s it, claims are not accepted. Using someone else's network, someone else's equipment is not so easy, even ordinary citizens who use Wi-Fi should understand this. Well, if somewhere military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine decided to show off StarLink terminals and share them, that’s their business, thanks to them for the equipment provided and the ability to connect to the Network! good

        All Starlink stations are displayed on their interactive map, including captured ones. So it's a double-edged sword.

    This is not a certified system with us, so it cannot come here officially supplied and not supplied officially, accordingly cannot be used in any way officially

    Such an abundance of the word “officially”))
    I think this is the answer
    We have dozens of examples of manufacturers who have left our market (officially gone), but whose products can still be bought

    . Environmental rating - IP54

    This is a degree of environmental protection, not a rating.

    Environmental rating - IP54g - IP54

    What the hell is this, Environmental rating - IP54? The author does not know what he wrote
    Degree of protection IP (International/Ingress Protection Rating) is a classifier of degrees of protection that regulates the penetration of foreign objects - dust and water in accordance with the international standard IEC 60529 (DIN 40050, GOST 14254-96).

    The degree of protection is indicated by the letters IP and two numbers indicating the degree of protection.

    It’s not officially used, but unofficially... That’s why it’s unofficial, so that less people know. wink

    All of Russia realized that everything is not officially used.
    Well, in the West everyone is stupid and doesn’t understand the subtle Soviet humor, let them think as they please.

    Peskov: Starlink terminals are not officially supplied to Russia and therefore cannot be officially used

    MP-40s were not officially supplied to the USSR, but were used by Red Army soldiers and partisans in full...

      It was impossible to detect the partisans at the location of the MP-40.
      And at the Starlink terminal location - in one second.
      That is the difference.

        The terminal cannot be used without Musk's consent. He is able to set technical restrictions on the territory and the speed of movement of terminals. If the terminal works, then Musk agrees to its work. Previously, the border of use ran along the front line.

    Environmental rating - IP54

    I want to cry from such a translation from English. :((
    Ingress Protection Code (translated from English as “penetration protection codes”)[1] is a classification of the method of protection provided by the shell of a technical device from access to dangerous parts, ingress of external solid objects and (or) water and verified by standard test methods[ 1]. ... Regulated by IEC 60529 (DIN 40050, GOST 14254) standards.
    Marking of the degree of protection of the enclosure of electrical equipment is carried out using the international protection mark (IP) and two numbers, with the optional addition of a specific letter, the first of which means protection from the ingress of solid objects, the second - from the ingress of water [2].

    Musk (and Peskov) is disingenuous. Buying a terminal is not a problem. The problem is that Musk is able to set restrictions on the use of the terminal according to various parameters, primarily by territory, and with high precision - at first he limited the work almost along the front line (the terminals did not work in Russia).
    Moreover, restrictions on the speed of movement were established so that they would not be installed on drones.
    But they write that Musk has now allowed the operation of terminals, including in Crimea and other areas that the United States considers to belong to Ukraine. Classic for both ours and yours.

    When and who in Russia was embarrassed by the possibility of using something without a license?
    I don't care, as long as they work as they should!
