Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, has announced that his company will not be selling Starlink terminals to Russia, directly contradicting a report from the Ukrainian government claiming that Russian paratroopers were using the terminals. This announcement comes after an audio recording was released by Ukrainian military intelligence on Telegram, featuring Russian paratroopers discussing the deployment of Starlink terminals. Musk vehemently denied these claims, stating that to the best of his knowledge, no Starlinks had been sold to Russia, directly or indirectly.
In a recent statement on his platform, Musk declared that he had no business relations with Russia and that Starlink did not work there. However, this contradicts a report from the Ukrainian government claiming that Russian paratroopers were using the terminals. The CEO of SpaceX responded to these claims by stating that no statement has been issued by Russia regarding these reports. It is worth noting that Starlink is operated by SpaceX and is used for satellite internet communication.
