After a request from Ukraine’s Vice Prime Minister/Minister of Digital Transformation, billionaire space genius Elon Musk announced that his Starlink satellite broadband internet access is now enabled and active over the country.
Vlady Putin’s forces have disupted internet in many places across Ukraine in order to better control the propaganda and prevent the truth about their actions from getting out.
On Twitter Mykhailo Fedorov asked Musk to step in with his satellites, and in the last hour Musk replied that they have been enabled.
Starlink service is now active in Ukraine. More terminals en route.

So to be clear an American entrepreneur and businessman was able to short-circuit a dictator’s nefarious will by by using American, capitalist technology in order to thwart evil.
Gotta love it.
