It seems in this increasingly troubled world, all roads lead to Elon Musk, and that was evident again Saturday after he hopped on a call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Zelensky says Musk is providing more Starlink satellite internet stations to some of Ukraine’s “destroyed cities.”
Musk assured Zelensky terminals are on the way to Ukraine … courtesy of SpaceX.
Zelensky said, “Talked to @elonmusk. I’m grateful to him for supporting Ukraine with words and deeds. Next week we will receive another batch of Starlink systems for destroyed cities.”

And this is interesting … Zelensky is confident about the future of Ukraine to add, “Discussed possible space projects. But I’ll talk about this after the war.”
There’s been a massive number of internet outages in Ukraine, and Musk had said a few days ago he was stepping up to activate Starlink satellite internet service to the country.
The Ukrainian Minister of Digital Transformation had tweeted a plea to Musk a few days ago, “@elonmusk, while you try to colonize Mars — Russia try to occupy Ukraine! While your rockets successfully land from space — Russian rockets attack Ukrainian civil people! We ask you to provide Ukraine with Starlink stations and to address sane Russians to stand.”
Musk apparently heard the Minister loud and clear.
