The Minister reminded that at the very beginning of the war he had asked Elon Musk to provide Ukraine with Starlink.
“The next day we received a positive response from him, and a week later – the first 500 Starlink stations with free firmware for Ukraine were in our warehouse. Today, more than 10,000 stations help the Armed Forces of Ukraine to communicate and carry out special operations, support the operation of critical energy and telecommunications facilities, health care facilities, and even the sowing campaign, as well as bring back to life the occupied territories. Now it is almost impossible to represent Ukraine without modern Starlink technology. And this technology will become even more accessible to Ukrainians.”
“Today we received another positive news – Starlink has started work on opening a representative office in Ukraine!”
Fedorov added that he had instructed the relevant authorities to carry out the necessary procedures for certification, measurement, and the allocation of frequencies as soon as possible.
