The media reported that Starlink satellites sent into space by SpaceX of Elon Musk are helping Ukrainian military drones destroy Russian army tanks and vehicles.
A Ukrainian aerial reconnaissance specialist explained that Aerorozvidka, the elite drone unit, operates specially equipped devices with thermal cameras to detect Russian vehicles at night. They also equipped these drones with anti-tank grenades that they launch at their target. The Ukrainian specialist explained to the media that if they use Ukrainian drones with thermal vision at night. Starlink Satellites of Musk helping Ukrainian drones with the person carrying artillery and select the targets once it connects.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has led to widespread power outages, requiring anyone who wants to connect to the internet to use Musk’s Starlink satellites.
Last month, Elon Musk sent Starlink terminals to Ukraine at the request of Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov. He said broadband internet service keeps our cities connected, and emergency services save lives in case of outages.
Fedorov posted on Twitter that Ukraine had received more Starlink stations in the previous week. The Ukrainian politician wrote that a new batch of Starlink stations! While Russia blocks Internet usage, Ukraine is increasingly opening up to the entire world. Ukraine is the truth. The truth always wins. Thank you, @Elon Musk.
Ukraine has also received equipment from European allies, Fedorov told in an interview last Friday. Fedorov said through a translator that the quality of the connection is excellent. He added that They use thousands of terminals for new shipments that arrive every two days to the outlet through a Starlink connection from an undisclosed location
The Target Of The Attacks
As Russia stepped up its bombing attacks on major cities, Musk and other experts alerted that satellite signals could target Ukrainians. The businessman tweeted earlier this month that Starlink is the only non-Russian communications system still working in some parts of Ukraine. So the possibility of being attacked is increased. Use it with caution.
Starlink CEO Musk also has been busy in Twitter disputes with Russian officials and Kremlin allies. The previous week, he changed his Twitter name to ‘Elona’ after a Chechen leader called him ‘sissy.’
Days earlier, Elon Musk challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin to Single combat as Russia escalated its invasion, tweeting Ukraine is at stake.
