Elon Musk Changes His Mind About Supporting Starlink in Ukraine

The heck with it, we’ll just keep funding the Ukrainian government for free, even though Starlink is still losing money and other companies are receiving billions of taxpayer dollars, Musk declared in an tweet shortly he posted on Saturday after 2 p.m. The other businesses he’s mentioning might be defense contractors from which the US government frequently buys arms and ammunition. These companies include Boeing, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman. The governments of numerous European countries and the United States have given Ukraine equipment worth billions of dollars. Some of that gear was already in those countries’ defense inventories, but some of it was brand-new. Small weaponry and ammunition, armed and unarmed drones, and defense systems intended to block missiles, aircraft, and Russian drones are among the items provided to Ukraine.

The U.S. government is reportedly making significant contributions to the maintenance of the Starlink network in Ukraine. Uncle Sam and its friends may be paying for up to 85% of the terminals that were shipped to the war-torn nation of Eastern Europe, as well as up to 30% of the country’s internet connectivity. While there is nothing to imply the Tweet isn’t genuine, Musk might still change his mind on the Starlink problem. The richest guy in the world has a history of changing his mind in public settings. That is currently being pursued, as evidenced by his recent acquisition of Twitter.
