"SpaceX has already withdrawn its request for funding," he wrote, commenting on a Politico article that said the Pentagon could take over Starlinkʼs Internet payments for the military.

In addition, Musk said that 25 300 Starlink terminals were sent to Ukraine, but only 10 630 of them are currently being paid for.
