SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has followed through on one of his promises yet again, sending dozens of Starlink terminals to the Ukraine.
Ukraine’s Vice President and Minister of Digital Transformation, Mykhailo Fedorov, shared a photo on Twitter on Monday showing a truckload of terminals arriving at an undisclosed location.
Fedorov tweeted his thanks to Musk, who responded with “You are most welcome.”

The shipment comes just two days after Musk activated Starlink service in the country, at the request of Fedorov, and promising at the same time that more terminals were “en route.”
With Starlink service now operational in the Ukraine, the threat of Russia taking down communications in the country is greatly reduced.
This is just the latest example of Musk using SpaceX for humanitarian services.
They recently helped restore internet service to Tonga after a tsunami destroyed much of the nation’s communication infrastructure.
SpaceX also provided Starlink terminals to Kentucky following a deadly tornado that hit the state last year.
