US Brigadier General Steven Butow said Starlink has "destroyed Putin's information campaign.".

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk sent over the first Starlink terminals within days of Russia's invasion.

Starlink, the satellite-internet service from SpaceX, has been crucial part of Ukraine's defense against Russia, according to a US official and Ukrainian military members.

The general has worked closely with SpaceX as the director of the space portfolio at the defense innovation unit.

"The strategic impact is, it totally destroyed [Vladimir] Putin's information campaign," Butow told the publication.

Two days after the attack, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk shipped Starlink dishes to Ukraine within hours of a request for Starlink terminals from Mykhailo Fedorov, the vice prime minister of Ukraine.

Last week, the company reported it had delivered 15,000 Starlink kits to Ukraine over the past three months. »
