The Kremlin refuted claims on Monday regarding the utilization of Elon Musk's Starlink satellite internet system by Russian troops, asserting that the system is neither

certified for use in Russia nor officially supplied to the country.

Ukraine, which has relied on Starlink for military communications during its conflict with Russia, alleged on Sunday that Russian forces were deploying Starlink in areas of Ukraine under their control.

Speaking to reporters, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov stated, "This is not a certified system within our jurisdiction; hence, it cannot be officially provided here or utilized in any official capacity."

Peskov suggested refraining from involvement in the dialogue between the Kyiv regime and entrepreneur Musk, in reference to the Ukrainian government.

In a statement on Sunday, Ukraine's defense ministry's Main Directorate of Intelligence reported the use of Starlink terminals by units such as Russia's 83rd Air Assault Brigade, engaged in combat near the towns of Klishchiivka and Andriivka in the eastern Donetsk region.

Responding to the allegations, Musk posted on X, a platform he owns, stating, "To the best of our knowledge, no Starlinks have been sold directly or indirectly to Russia." He vehemently denied reports suggesting SpaceX's sale of Starlink terminals to Russia, labeling such claims as categorically false. Photo by Official SpaceX Photos, Wikimedia commons.
