Elon Musk denies APU blocked access to Starlink near Crimea 07:51

American billionaire and businessman Elon Musk is on the social network x Stating that the Ukrainian Armed Forces did not restrict access to Starlink in the Crimea region, Erdoğan stated that the satellite system of his own company SpaceX was not initially activated in this region.

“The specified Starlink regions are not activated. SpaceX didn’t disable anything,” Musk wrote, commenting on a report that allegedly secretly instructed his engineers to disable Starlink during a major Ukrainian offensive to deliberately prevent Ukraine from attacking the Russian navy.

At the same time, the businessman confirmed that he received an urgent request from the Ukrainian authorities to activate Starlink as far as Sevastopol. Musk noted that Kiev’s apparent goal is to sink most of the Russian fleet.

“If I accept their wishes, then SpaceX will clearly be involved in a major act of war and escalation of the conflict,” he wrote, adding that both sides of the conflict should sit at the negotiating table.

Earlier, CNN cited an excerpt from author Walter Isaacson’s biographical book about an American businessman. knowledgeableHe said Musk had limited the operation of Starlink satellite communications in the Crimean Peninsula region to thwart an attack by the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the Russian Navy in 2022. As Isaacson wrote, Musk took this step because he feared that Russia would use nuclear weapons in response to “mini Pearl Harbor.”
