Elon Musk says SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet service is operating in Ukraine with more terminals on the way

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said his space company’s Starlink satellite internet service is available in Ukraine and more terminals are in the works to use it.

Musk made the statement on Twitter Saturday (February 26) after being asked by a Ukrainian government official whether SpaceX could provide more Starlink services to the country after Russian forces invaded Ukraine last week. Internet services in Ukraine have seen “significant disruptions” in the capital Kiev and much of the country as a result of Russian military operations and the ensuing fighting, the monitoring group Netblocks reported on Thursday (Feb. 24).
