Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukraine’s Vice Prime Minister, issued a plea to Elon Musk on Twitter, saying: “while you try to colonize Mars — Russia try 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.”
His tweet was shared by the official Twitter account of Ukraine, which asked Musk for his support. “Your stance and your actions matter. An appeal by our Minister of Digital Transformation here.” And Elon Musk has stepped up again to show that good people in this world truly do exist, responding to his tweet with: “Starlink service is now active in Ukraine. More terminals en route.”
Ukraine is just one of many situations that he has helped, as Musk genuinely cares about humanity and is willing to help those in need no matter where they are.
The official Twitter account of Ukraine showed their thankfulness as they replied with a: “Thanx, appreciate it.”
If you want to help Ukraine, go directly to its official channels. Ukraine is verified on Twitter, always look for the verification badge. Even still, vet the links and make sure it’s actually their account. Some verified folks on Twitter have been hacked before.
Ukraine also announced one way you could help, as the country is accepting donations of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Tether (USDT), which is a stable coin, per report.
