Second batch of Starlink equipment, batteries, generators from SpaceX delivered to Ukraine.

The second batch of Starlink satellite Internet stations has been delivered to Ukraine, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov said.

"It inspires me that a person like Elon Musk [co-founder of SpaceX] keeps his word, reacts quickly and supports Ukraine. Today we have already received the second, much larger batch of Starlink stations that help our military, support the work of critical infrastructure and services in medicine, finance, energy," he wrote on his Telegram channel.

Fedorov noted that war made the impossible possible both in a negative and a positive sense.

In turn, in response to Fedorov's post, Elon Musk wrote on Twitter that along with Starlink stations, they also sent power adapters for car cigarette lighters, solar/battery packs and generators for places where electricity is not available.

As previously reported, Musk refused to block Russian news agencies on the Starlink network.

The first batch of Starlink satellite Internet stations arrived in Ukraine on March 1, 2022.

Starlink became active on the territory of Ukraine on February 27, 2022.
