Currently, Ukraine is suffering with Russia induced pandemonium. For over a week now, Russia’s offensive stance on multiple fronts against Ukraine is lasting. There are no signs of deterrence. Russia is shelling Ukraine and disturbing it’s peace and integrity. In response to Russia’s actions, the world condemns it.

For in Ukraine, the network issues are becoming prevalent due to war.

Starlink is a non-conventional network service provider. It connects users to satellites/terminals. Thus, it is easily reachable in a region undergoing crisis.
