Elon Musk said Saturday his company SpaceX's Starlink satellite broadband service had been activated in Ukraine, after a Kyiv official urged the tech titan to provide his embattled country with stations.
"While you try to colonize Mars -- Russia try to occupy Ukraine! While your rockets successfully land from space -- Russian rockets attack Ukrainian civil people! We ask you to provide Ukraine with Starlink stations," Fedorov tweeted at Musk.
He also called on the billionaire "to address sane Russians to stand" against their government's invasion.
The company on Friday launched a further 50 Starlink satellites and many more are slated to be put into Earth's orbit.
