Elon Musk’s Internet Offer To Ukraine Puts Iran On Notice

A former Iranian minister has warned parliament against plans to restrict Internet access, pointing out Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite access offered to Ukrainians.

Addressing the hardliner lawmakers who are pushing for a bill to limit the internet in Iran, former communication minister Mohammad-Javad Azari-Jahromi said on Sunday that “The consequences of wrong policies are heavy. Wrong governance destroys the instruments of governance and regulation forever”.

As Ukraine’s internet service has been disrupted by Russia’s invasion, Musk made the internet service available in Ukraine, saying that more terminals to use it are also on the way.
