Kimbal Musk, the billionaire brother of Tesla Inc and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, held meetings with Ukraine’s Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov and his team on Tuesday to discuss rebuilding projects once the war with Russia ends.

What Happened

Fedorov on Tuesday revealed he had an “inspiring meeting” to discuss the joint projects for the “after the war” time as well as plans for a “big rebuild.”

“Best days are yet to come,” Fedorov tweeted and thanked the Musk family for the support after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Kimbal in response tweeted to say “our hearts are with you to win the war.”

Why It Matters

Elon Musk had in February swiftly responded to Ukraine’s plea to provide Starlink stations after Russia’s invasion, with donations having gone up to thousands since then. These have been installed in hospitals and other critical infrastructure.

Fedorov on Monday said daily Starlink users had reached 150,000 in just a little over two months.

Starlink beams down high-speed internet via satellites in orbit to Earth, especially to remote areas, including those ravaged by war or natural calamity.

Musk was reportedly close to commercially launching Starlink in Ukraine months ahead of Russia’s invasion.

Starlink has plans to launch 4,425 satellites in orbit by 2024.
