The US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, said on Saturday that the US government had a discussion with Elon Musk about the use of the Starlink satellite internet in Ukraine.
SpaceX said this month it has taken steps to prevent the Ukrainian military from using the company’s Starlink service to control drones in the region during the country’s war with Russia.
It was asked during an interview with NBC News “Meet the Press with Chuck Todd” that will be broadcast on Sunday whether the United States asked Musk, the CEO of the company, not to stop the use of Starlink by the Ukrainian military, Blinken said: ” Well, I can’t share any conversation we had other than to say we talked.”
SpaceX has secretly sent a shipment of Starlink terminals to Ukraine, allowing the country’s military to communicate through docking and communications. among the nearly 4,000 satellites SpaceX has launched into low-Earth orbit.
Russia has tried to install Starlink signals in the region, although SpaceX has resisted by tightening the service’s software, Musk said.
