Warsaw has decided to continue paying subscription fees for the Starlink terminals it previously provided to Ukraine as part of its aid efforts, Ukraine’s Digital Transformation Minister Mykhailo Fedorov said on May 6.

Fedorov made the announcement via Telegram, following a meeting with his Polish counterpart Krzysztof Gawkowski.

“The country has donated more than 20,000 Starlink terminals, which have become a part of our critical infrastructure, providing communications and internet for Ukrainians,” the Ukrainian minister said.

“Today, we agreed that Poland will continue the funding for these terminals. I am grateful to my [Polish] colleagues for this decision.”

He added that the sides have signed a memorandum of cooperation between the ministries to further implement bilateral digitalization projects, IT industry development, and electronic governance.

Additionally, they discussed a project to set up a data center for Ukraine’s Fiscal Service on Polish territory.

In December 2023, Fedorov announced that nearly 50,000 Starlink terminals were operational in Ukraine.
