Pentagon extends deal with Musk's company to use Starlink in Ukraine

Jun 13, 2024

The U.S. Department of Defense has extended the contract with Elon Musk's SpaceX to provide Starlink Internet services in Ukraine for another six months.

This is reported by Bloomberg.

According to the agency's spokeswoman Bonnie Poindexter, the US Space Force has extended the contract with SpaceX worth $14.1 million until November 30.


"The contract provides access to Starlink satellites, equipment, and customer support under the terms negotiated," she said.

The US military has praised Starlink's terminals, which provide high-speed internet connectivity for critical military communications as well as civilians, following Russia's large-scale invasion of Ukraine.

This is just part of the $2.5 billion in contracts SpaceX has won as part of its military satellite launch program.
