In response to several Russian cyberattacks on the country, Ukraine’s Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov requested help from SpaceX and Tesla billionaire Elon Musk.

Responding on Twitter, Musk confirmed  “Starlink service is now active in Ukraine. More terminals en route.”

SpaceX’s low-earth-orbit (LEO), high speed, low latency internet service, which is considered more reliable than traditional broadband, is now available country-wide.

The move makes it impossible for Russia to fully disable Ukraine’s internet access without cyber attacking foreign data centres.
