The Government is negotiating the possibility to buy a new large batch of thousands of Starlink satellite units for Ukraine, announced Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal during a Government session on November 29.
“Today we have approved the necessary documents for the Starlink terminals to be imported to Ukraine free of duty and VAT. This will reduce their cost and provide them to as many people and organizations as possible,” noted the Head of Government.
Denys Shmyhal reminded that last week, at the initiative of the President of Ukraine, the Points of Invincibility had been launched across the country. Almost a thousand of them were opened by the State Emergency Service: “These points have light, water, heat and communication. We are working to provide each such point with a Starlink terminal.”
According to the Prime Minister, such points have been opened by responsible businesses: in shops, pharmacies, bank branches, and gas stations. Local authorities are also actively involved in the organization of such places.
