Elon Musk refutes claims of selling Starlink satellites to Russia

US billionaire Elon Musk has announced that his company SpaceX will not be selling Starlink terminals to Russia, despite claims from the Ukrainian government that Russian paratroopers were using them. This contradicts a recent report by the Ukrainian government, which stated that Starlink terminals had been used by Russian forces in Ukraine. However, Musk has vehemently denied these claims, stating that to the best of his knowledge, no Starlinks had been sold to Russia directly or indirectly.

This announcement comes just a week after Musk declared that he had no business relations with Russia and that Starlink did not work there. The CEO of SpaceX made this statement in response to an audio recording released by Ukrainian military intelligence on Telegram, which reportedly featured Russian paratroopers discussing the deployment of Starlink terminals. No statement has been issued by Russia regarding these claims.

It should be noted that Starlink is operated by SpaceX, and the company has been working on developing satellite internet technology for several years now. While there have been reports of potential interest from countries such as China and India in purchasing Starlink terminals, it is unclear if any deals have been struck.
