American private companies are helping Kiev out of space

The US Space Force Commander, General John Raymond, made this statement at the Annual Security Forum of the Aspen Institute.

"Space is important," says TASS. "We have already seen evidence of this in the current conflict." According to the General, it is the commercial space industry that plays a major role in supporting Ukraine. "Our task is to build a solid architecture of outer space," the U.S. Space Force Commander pointed out.

Raymond believes that future wars can begin precisely in space, because it is in space and satellite communications that military technology is most closely linked to human life, such as satellite positioning technologies in each smartphone or data-based weather forecasts.

It was previously reported that SpaceX company Ilona Maska had provided satellite-based Starlink Internet coverage to Ukraine and had provided ground stations with a service to the country; they were actively used by the US in their actions against the Russian Armed Forces.
