Ukrposhta postal service installing Starlink at base points - CEO

Ukraine’s state-owned postal operator Ukrposhta has no intention to suspend services amid potential blackouts and lack of signal so the population will be able to receive virtually all services available.

This was stated by CEO Ihor Smilyanskyi, who spoke at a briefing set up by the Ukraine – Ukrinform Media Center.

"Ukrposhta has no plans to suspend operations in conditions where there is no electricity or signal. We have developed all the procedures that allow us to prevail. For example, we’re purchasing generators and also installing Starlink at base service points. Thanks to this, among other things, we can continue to provide basic services for the population," he said.
