Elon Musk secretly shuts down Starlink
CNN reports that in 2022, American billionaire Elon Musk secretly turned off Starlink off the coast of the occupied Crimea.
This happened in order to disrupt the attack of Ukraine by underwater drones on the Russian navy.
Mayor’s drones filled with explosives had already approached the Russian fleet, but suddenly lost contact and washed ashore harmlessly.
Musk’s decision, which resulted in Ukrainian officials begging him to turn the satellites back on, was fueled by a keen fear that Russia would retaliate against Ukraine’s attack on Crimea with nuclear weapons, a fear fueled by Musk’s conversations with senior Russian officials.
It is also narrated that Musk unwittingly became a powerhouse in Ukraine that US officials could not ignore.
After this incident, representatives of the White House spoke with the businessman, who voiced their concern.
“How did I end up in this war? Starlink was not designed to fight in wars. This was done so that people can watch Netflix, relax, connect to the Internet at school and do good peaceful deeds, and not strike with drones, ”Musk said.
The Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Fedorov asked Musk to resume Internet connection again.
“I just want you – a man who is changing the world with technology – to know this,” the minister wrote to the American.
Musk responded that he was impressed with the design of the underwater drones, but would not reactivate communications because Ukraine “is now going too far and could suffer a strategic defeat.”
