Elon Musk denied Ukrainian claims that Russians are using Starlink in their ongoing war, stating that the technology is inoperable in Russia and that no Starlink terminals have been sold to Russia.

Musk clarified that Starlink would not connect to devices in Russia and emphasized that if SpaceX becomes aware of unauthorized use, they take actions to deactivate the terminal.

“A number of false news reports claim that SpaceX is selling Starlink terminals to Russia. This is categorically false,” Musk wrote. “To the best of our knowledge, no Starlinks have been sold directly or indirectly to Russia.”

“Starlink satellites will not close the link in Russia,” he wrote.

However, it remains unclear whether the technology could be used in Ukrainian regions occupied by Russia.

“Starlink is not active in Russia,” Space X wrote.

There are speculations that Russian soldiers may have obtained Starlink equipment from Ukrainians through battle.

“If SpaceX obtains knowledge that a Starlink terminal is being used by a sanctioned or unauthorized party, we investigate the claim and take actions to deactivate the terminal if confirmed,” the company stated.

Despite Russia’s efforts to remove Ukraine’s access to Starlink, space warfare analysts believe that Russia’s jamming efforts of Starlink have not been successful so far.
