“Another 1,570 Starlinks from Poland are already in Ukraine,” Fedorov said.

At the same time, he added that the country will be provided with public Wi-Fi points where people can be in touch. Fedorov also specified that part of the terminals would be handed over to civil administrations.

In addition, Starlink will provide “Ukrainian Railways”so that passengers and employees have stable mobile communications and the Internet. According to Fedorov, since the beginning of the special operation, Ukraine has already received more than 20,000 terminals from partners, 5,000 of them from Poland.

Musk later said that he would continue to fund Starlink service in Ukraine. At the same time, the American media reported that European Union and the Pentagon considered the possibility of allocating funds to ensure the operation of the satellite communications system in Ukraine in the event of such a need.
