Tesla CEO, Elon Musk finally fulfilled his promise to get additional SpaceX satellite dishes into Ukraine, drawing thanks from the deputy prime minister who had pleaded for the tools to keep internet communication working amid Russia’s invasion.
Mykhailo Fedorov, who is also Ukraine’s minister of Digital Transformation, tweeted a photograph of the additional Starlink dishes and said they had arrived.
“You are most welcome,” Musk, who is chief executive officer of SpaceX as well as Tesla Inc., tweeted in response.
The starlink project appears to be SpaceX’s first foray into a truly consumer-facing product.
Some social media users in Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital, already have their equipment up and running.
