Starlink is designed to help Pentagon operations - Russia

Elon Musk's SpaceX Starlink satellites are designed to assist Pentagon's constant communications throughout the world, Russian space agency Roscosmos's Director-General Dmitry Rogozin (pictured left) told Mir TV channel on Monday.

Such technology will ensure the operation of unmanned ground and air systems for the United States forces, Rogozin pointed out. SpaceX's claims that the satellites will primarily help provide Internet communication anywhere in the world are "nonsense," he stressed.

It is "a rather predatory, smart, strong, high-tech policy of the US [...] to advance, first of all, its military interests," Roscosmos's chief added.
