Elon Musk says Starlink is active in Ukraine amid internet disruptions
Of all the American billionaires, I respect and admire Elon Musk the most. Ukraine appealed to Musk for help on Saturday, and 10 hours later his Starlink satellite constellation was activated over Ukraine and internet terminals are on the way. Musk is a true visionary and the United States is lucky to have him. This should ensure that Ukraine will maintain some long distance communication capability no matter what kind of cyber attacks Russia launches against the country.

User terminals are 'en route' to Ukraine now, Musk said

SpaceX founder Elon Musk said Saturday evening that the company's Starlink satellites are now active in Ukraine to alleviate some of the connectivity challenges the country is facing amid the Russia invasion. 

Ukrainian Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov appealed to Musk on Saturday morning, saying that while his "rockets successfully land from space — Russian rockets attack Ukrainian civil people!"

Just 10 hours later, Musk responded that Starlink is now active in the eastern European country and more terminals are on the way. 

Starlink is a network of about 2,000 satellites in low earth orbit that provide high-speed broadband internet by connecting with user terminals around the globe. 

Because it isn't limited by traditional internet infrastructure, Starlink can be deployed quickly in hard-to-reach areas and disaster situations. 

SpaceX did not immediately respond to a request for comment about when or how many user terminals would be delivered to Ukraine. 
Elon Musk is a true American patriot. Much of his personal wealth is invested in Tesla and a company that produces batteries for electric vehicles, yet he understands and agrees that the United States national security demands energy independence. A small, radical faction of the Democrat Party disagrees and are actively waging war on fossil fuels with total disregard of national security. Joe Biden and his supporters have placed this country on a glide path to self destruction.
