smartphone at war

In May this year, Russian forces were crossing the Sverevsky Donets River in eastern Ukraine. Suddenly, it started being bombarded from the sky. Then only it was learned in the news that the Russian army had suffered a great loss. By the way, Ukraine had also suffered because some of its properties also came under the JD of the attack. But then it was not known how much damage was done and how did Ukraine suddenly come to know about that particular place? Last week, a German media house revealed the full details of the attack. It was learned that Ukraine carried out this attack with the help of the app. The attack took him barely a minute to set the target, and he bombed around five hundred Russian soldiers. The Russian army also destroyed the pontoon bridge built to cross the Sversky Donets River.

It came to know about this app that it is an app similar to Uber-Ola, which gives accurate location of things. The way apps like Uber-Ola run with the help of real time maps, it also does the same but in a slightly refined way. It happened that Ukrainian programmers and UK digital mapping companies created this app and connected it to NATO satellites. Now it needed internet too, and Ukraine’s own internet system had already been destroyed by Russian attack. Elon Musk came forward to give internet and gave it internet from his Starlink satellite. Within minutes it was known that the location of the target was the Siversky Donets River. Immediately Ukraine attacked there with a drone. Till now we all had been hearing about the digital war, but Ukraine has shown it by doing it directly.

The name of this app is being told as GisArta. It was found on the Internet that there is also a website named Gisarta, on which the flags of Ukraine and Britain are also attached. It was also revealed on GisArta’s website that this app was created in 2014 itself. It was also used by Ukrainian artillery units when Russia annexed Crimea. But it was not as effective then, nor did Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites start the Internet business then. But after the Russian attack, SpaceX’s Starlink and the US government have given about 11,000 stations to Ukraine, so that its Internet supply can continue. Obviously, in the coming days, the soldiers will probably not be on the border. Maybe they will finish the enemy in the comfort of their home while eating rasgulla in as much time as the taxis available on the app.
