The Russian military began using Starlink satellite devices
It has become known that the American military portal Defense One confirms rumors about the appearance of Starlink in the Russian military.
The portal published photographs allegedly of one of the Starlink systems used by the Russians.
“According to one Ukrainian source, Ukrainian troops first discovered Russian use of satellite devices on the front lines several months ago.”
“A second Ukrainian source confirmed the use of Starlink and added that its use appears to be growing,” the article said.
According to a source from the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Russians now already have dozens of Starlink terminals.
“When there are hundreds of them, it will be difficult for us to live,” said one of the Ukrainian military men.
SpaceX is able to prevent the use of Starlink devices in Russian-occupied territory.
It was previously reported that SpaceX founder Elon Musk rejected Ukraine’s request to provide Starlink access in occupied Crimea to support the Ukrainian counter-offensive.
