Technocrat Elon Musk has cautioned the world that Starlink’s satellite broadband service could come under fire from Russia’s side. It could become a potential target in Ukraine amid the ongoing war between the two neighbours.
Elon Musk’s Starlink is the only non-Russian communications system that is still functioning and helping several thousands of stranded locals and foreigners in some parts of Ukraine.
“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 tweeted.

Starlink has updated software in order to reduce peak power consumption. Elon Musk even tweeted about the same, “Updating software to reduce peak power consumption, so Starlink can be powered from car cigarette lighter. Mobile roaming enabled, so phased array antenna can maintain signal while on moving vehicle.”
In the aftermath of Russian invasion, Tesla CEO managed to arrange Starlink satellite internet connection and terminals soon reached Ukraine.
