150,000 People in Ukraine Communicate Daily via SpaceX's Starlink

Around 150,000 people in Ukraine are using SpaceX's Starlink satellite services daily, a top Ukrainian official said on Monday.

"This is a crucial support for Ukraine's infrastructure and restoring the destroyed territories," Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukraine's vice prime minister and digital transformation minister, said on Twitter.

He added: "Ukraine will stay connected no matter what."

SpaceX founder Elon Musk began Starlink space internet services in Ukraine in late February, after Russia launched the war.

At least 2,899 civilians have been killed and 3,235 others injured in Ukraine since the war with Russia began on Feb. 24, according to UN estimates. The true toll is feared to be much higher.

More than 5.4 million people have fled to other countries, with some 7.7 million people internally displaced, data from the UN refugee agency shows.
