According to a source, Elon Musk’s SpaceX’s Starlink satellites are assisting Ukrainian military drones in destroying Russian tanks and army trucks.
According to a Ukrainian air reconnaissance expert, his military has been using drones equipped with infrared cameras to spot Russian vehicles at night.
The drones are armed with anti-tank grenades, which they fire at their intended target.
Due to extensive power disruptions as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, anyone wishing to connect to the internet must use Starlink.
Musk delivered Starlink terminals to Ukraine last month at the request of Ukraine Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov, who stated that the broadband internet service keeps our cities connected and emergency services save lives in the event of outages.
A cargo of Starlink terminals was dispatched by SpaceX to Ukraine to give internet connection.
However, when Russia’s bombing of key cities increased, Musk and others warned that satellite signals could convert Ukrainians into targets.
Musk has also gotten into Twitter spats with Russian authorities and Kremlin loyalists.
Russian demands that Ukrainian forces in Mariupol lay down their arms and hoist white flags in exchange for safe passage out of the beleaguered port city were vehemently rebuffed by Ukrainian leaders.
Russia’s ground offensive in other parts of Ukraine has slowed as it intensified its efforts to pound Mariupol into submission. According to Western officials and commentators, the fight is deteriorating into a savage attrition war, with Russia bombarding cities.
