Just recently, Mykhailo Fedorov, the Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, tagged Elon Musk in a tweet, asking the engineer and billionaire for help with the situation in Ukraine.

In his tweet, Mykhailo Fedorov described the situation the Ukrainian people are facing, explaining that Russia's occupation of Ukraine is similar to Elon Musk's colonization of Mars and SpaceX rocket landings to the rockets falling on the soil of Ukraine.

Beyond this, Mykhailo Fedorov asked Elon Musk for 'Starlink stations'. Notably, Starlink is one of Elon Musk's ventures under SpaceX which is an internet service provider that uses satellites to be able to provide internet anywhere on the planet.

Mykhailo Fedorov asks this as Russia's attacks have taken a toll on much of Ukraine's internet connections. Thus, a satellite-based internet system would provide the country with a reliable means of keeping their internet going and this is something Elon Musk could help with.

To the delight of citizens, Elon Musk was able to respond In under 10 hours after Mykhailo Fedorov's tweet. The engineer and billionaire confirmed that his Starlink system is now operational in Ukraine and he added that more terminals are on the way.

It can only be assumed that Elon Musk's quick response and actions towards Mykhailo Fedorov's tweet with Starlink is a sign that the engineer and billionaire did not hesitate in showing his support for Ukraine.
