Former Minister of Economy of Ukraine Tymofiy Mylovanov discusses Russian forces advancing towards Kyiv and the Ukrainian military forces.
SpaceX founder Elon Musk said Saturday evening that the company's Starlink satellites are now active in Ukraine to alleviate some of the connectivity challenges the country is facing amid the Russia invasion. 
Ukrainian Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov appealed to Musk on Saturday morning, saying that while his "rockets successfully land from space — Russian rockets attack Ukrainian civil people!"
Just 10 hours later, Musk responded that Starlink is now active in the eastern European country and more terminals are on the way.

Because it isn't limited by traditional internet infrastructure, Starlink can be deployed quickly in hard-to-reach areas and disaster situations.
