Elon Musk: Starlink internet service now active in Ukraine
A call for help from a Ukraine official on Saturday ended with Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder Elon Musk sending SpaceX’s Starlink

More terminals en route,” Musk tweeted Saturday.
The move came in response to an earlier tweet from Ukraine vice prime minister Mykhailo Fedorov.
