The war between Ukraine and Russia had the world waiting for the latest updates. Elon Musk, an American entrepreneur seems to be updated with what’s going on.
Musk issued a grim warning on Thursday, only days after his other business, SpaceX, deployed Starlink terminals to Ukraine earlier this week.
Elon Musk responds to plea of Ukraine Vice PM
According to CNN, last weekend, Ukraine’s vice prime minister, Mykhailo Fedorov, issued a public plea to Musk on Twitter, saying, “While you try to colonize Mars, Russia tries to occupy Ukraine! While your rockets successfully land from space, Russian rockets attack Ukrainian civil people! We ask you to provide Ukraine with Starlink stations and to address sane Russians to stand!”
Musk offered assistance, stated that the Starlink network had been launched in Ukraine, and a truckload of user terminals — which are required to provide users with access to the satellite-based internet service — arrived this week.
Starlink might be the next target
In a tweet by Elon Musk early morning of March 04, he said that because Starlink is the only non-Russian communications system still operational in some sections of Ukraine, there’s a good chance it’ll be attacked. He warns Ukrainians to exercise caution before using.
He certainly provided scary news to many Ukrainians when he stated that foreign hackers were likely to target Starlink terminals. These hackers want to deny Ukrainians access to a free, fast, and secure internet.
Important warning: Starlink is the only non-Russian communications system still working in some parts of Ukraine, so probability of being targeted is high. Please use with caution.

Elon Musk warns Ukrainians to show his concern enabling them to remain connected to the rest of the world and, more importantly, to share about their daily lives amid chaos brought about by the Russian president.
