American blockade of Starlink in the occupied territories of Russia !

14. 05. 2024 | Natalie Bezděková

The US government recently issued an executive order forcing Elon Musk, a prominent businessman and founder of SpaceX, to shut down the Starlink satellite system in areas occupied by Russia.

This order was issued in order to prevent the Russian military from being able to use Starlink for potential military purposes. Starlink, a SpaceX project, aims to provide global internet coverage through a network of satellites in low Earth orbit.

This move by the US government has profound geopolitical implications, particularly in the context of strained US-Russia relations. Closing access to Starlink in the occupied territories has the potential to limit Russian military operations while strengthening the position of the United States and its allies.

Elon Musk, who has recently become one of the most prominent figures in space technology, is under pressure and expectations from both the US government and the public. His company, SpaceX, has a major influence on the development of the space industry and international space research, and therefore on the geopolitical situation.
