The 1,570 Starlink system terminals handed over by Poland have already arrived in Ukraine, as reported by the Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mikhaylo Fedorov.


This is especially important now, because there are problems with electricity due to Russian shelling. When the light disappears, mobile operators and Internet providers do not work in some regions. So let’s equip the country with public WI-FI hotspots where people can be connected.

He noted that some of the terminals will be given to civilian administrations in the de-occupied territories.

In addition, we will provide Starlinks Ukrzaliznytsia (Ukrainian railways), so that passengers and employees have a stable mobile communication and Internet,” the minister stressed.

Fedorov specified that since the beginning of the full-scale invasion with the assistance of the Ministry of Digital from donors and partners Ukraine has received more than 20 thousand Starlink terminals.

Of these, 5 thousand with the support of the Polish government. Now another 1,570 terminals from our strategic partners will help Ukraine stay connected. I thank the Polish government for its constant support and ZAMMLER group of logistics companies for the free delivery of the new batch of terminals to Ukraine,” summed up the head of the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.
