After Elon Musk allowed Internet access via SpaceX’s satellites to war-torn Ukraine, he decided to step up his support by “silently” sending Tesla Powerwalls, the company’s solar battery systems.
Elon Musk is sending support to Ukraine via Starlink and Tesla Powerwalls
According to The Street story, Elon Musk has already shipped a number of shipments of terminals from Starlink that allow them to offer satellite internet services to Ukraine.

The terminals allowed Ukrainians to stay connected to the world via fast, secure, and independent internet.
In addition to his efforts to give Ukrainians access to an internet connection, Elon Musk has expanded his support by quietly sending out Tesla Powerwalls. The technology sent by Elon Musk, the Tesla Powerwalls, are integrated battery systems that can store solar energy.
US intelligence agencies confirm cyber attackers preparing for Ukraine
In addition to physical attacks, Ukraine has also been hit by a number of cyber attacks, particularly targeting the country’s communications infrastructure.

US intelligence analysts confirmed that spy hackers are targeting the country.
According to The Washington Post, US intelligence analysts said the military espionage hackers were disrupting communications inside Ukraine. This happened through an attack on a satellite broadband service in Ukraine.
Cyber attackers are ready to penetrate military, energy, and other critical computer networks
Before the invasion began, government hackers attempted to penetrate Ukraine’s military, energy, and other vital computer networks to gather intelligence.

This also allowed the hackers to position themselves to potentially disrupt said systems later.
On February 24, along with the invasion of Ukraine, outages occurred because hackers directly targeted satellite modems. The satellite modems reportedly belonged to tens of thousands of different people in Ukraine and Europe.

The information about the satellite modems reported to the Post came from the US company Viasat official, according to reports. In addition, the constant cyberattacks began to raise alarms about the vulnerability of broadband services still using “poorly maintained firmware”.
Despite their best efforts, the cyber attackers have not yet been able to penetrate Starlink stations, according to Elon Musk. In response to a Slashdot post on Twitter, Elon Musk revealed that his company, Starlink, has since been able to resist hacking and disruption attempts by hackers.

What are Tesla Powerwalls?
Starlink has withstood all attempts at hacking and jamming, at least so far

Based on the Tesla website, powerwalls are devices that help users store solar energy for later use. Given the choppy connection most Ukrainians experience in terms of both internet and electricity, the Tesla Powerwalls aim to help them access electricity consistently.
