Investigation into SpaceX due to use of Starlink by Russian troops

Democrats in the US House of Representatives have launched an investigation into Elon Musk’s SpaceX amid data on the purchase of Starlink terminals by the Russians.

The Washington Post reports this.

The publication writes that the purpose of the investigation is to find out whether the company took appropriate measures to prevent Russia from using satellite Internet service.

Thus, a letter was sent to the company demanding that it provide reports of complaints about illegal acquisitions of terminals.

Lawmakers also stressed that Russia’s proposed use of Starlink poses a serious threat to the security of Ukraine, the lives of Ukrainians, and U.S. national security.

Earlier, information appeared that the Russian military began to use Starlink satellite terminals.

The American military portal Defense One confirmed rumors about the appearance of Starlink in the Russian armed forces.

The portal published photos allegedly of one of the Starlink systems used by the Russians.

Ukrainian troops first discovered Russia’s use of satellite devices on the front lines several months ago.
