Don't tussle with Elon. Elon Musk. Combat Ukrainian wartime communications enabled via StarLink. Musk one, Russian zero.

From and thanks to same. 8 March 2022.

1. "Ukraine is Elon Musk’s Starlink latest customer base — but it comes with a risk."

"With Russia invading Ukraine, internet connection has been gravely affected in cities like Kharkiv and Kyiv"

"Starlink is the only non-Russian communications system working in parts of Ukraine — raising the possibility of being targeted"

"Ukraine’s vice PM Mykhailo Fedorov emphasized that internet access is a critical component for those in Ukraine fighting to survive the invasion."

2. "How Ukraine Military Is Using Elon Musk’s Starlink To Blow Up Russian Tanks"

Thanks to the Internet web site "Great Game India" March 29, 2022.

"With Russia attempting to demolish Ukrainian military infrastructure, notably power and the internet, Starlink is set to become even more critical in the next weeks and months, as Ukraine’s military is using Elon Musk’s Starlink to blow up Russian tanks and military targets."


3. "Electronic Weapons: A Failure To Communicate"

As excerpted from a "Strategy Page" article.

"Ukrainian forces had [have] free access to the high-speed Starlink satellite communications system. This came about early in the war when a Ukrainian communications official asked American entrepreneur Elon Musk if he could supply Ukraine with access to the new Starlink system, which was about to begin worldwide activation after a very successful period of testing and use by journalists. Within a week Musk had trucked in the first truckloads of user kits (a small satellite dish and a 'modem' to allow any PC user to connect. Musk repositioned two thousand Starlink satellites (out of 11,000 already up there) over Ukraine and turned them on days after the Ukrainian request. Since then, several thousand user kits have been sent in and Starlink engineers have detected and defeated Russian efforts to disrupt its operation."

In contrast, Russian high-technology radio system Azart down or poorly functioning.

Elon si, Russian no!
