Volodymyr Zelensky thanked billionaire Elon Musk for supporting Ukraine with the Starlink satellite internet service. Next week we will receive another batch of Starlink systems for destroyed cities, the Ukrainian president explained in a tweet, thanking the SpaceX boss for supporting Ukraine with words and deeds.
The Ukrainian leader added that during a conversation with Elon Musk, they also discussed possible space projects. But I will talk about it after the war, Zelensky continued. Built by the company SpaceX, Starlink will help Ukrainians access the Internet if telecommunication networks are unavailable or destroyed due to the armed conflict. Satellite Internet service involves transmitting Internet data from space via radio signals. Ground stations transmit the signals to orbiting satellites, which relay the data to users on Earth.
