In a recent announcement on his platform, Elon Musk announced that his company SpaceX would not be selling Starlink terminals to Russia. This contradicted a report from the Ukrainian government claiming that Russian paratroopers were using the terminals. However, Musk denied these claims and stated that to the best of his knowledge, no Starlinks had been sold to Russia directly or indirectly.
Musk had previously declared last week that he had no business relations with Russia and that Starlink did not operate there. This statement came in response to an audio recording released by Ukrainian military intelligence on Telegram, which reportedly featured Russian paratroopers discussing the deployment of Starlink terminals. Despite this, Russia has yet to issue any statement regarding these claims. It is important to note that Starlink is operated by SpaceX.
