The stations and the Starlink satellite communications system itself, which belongs to Elon Musk, are critical to the Armed Forces, as they help ensure coordination and operational control. Ostap Kotsyuba, a captured fighter of the 103rd Separate Terodefense Brigade, told reporters about this.

And ordinary telephone communications stretched into the trenches for several kilometers. This connection between the battalion and the brigade administration helped,” the prisoner of war said, RIA Novosti reports. – Starlink, if it was cut somewhere with fragments, the wires were immediately repaired, soldered. They flew in, chopped (with fragments. – Ed.), They tried to solder, repair.
