Elon Musk recently posted a cryptic tweet where he hinted that he feared he may die under mysterious circumstances. Despite heavy criticism over his motives for buying Twitter, Musk has been a friend to the Ukrainian military during Russia’s unprovoked war. Elon followed up his tweet with alleged evidence that the government of Russia considers him an enemy.
Musk revealed a message that was sent to Russian media by Dmitry Rogozin. Rogozin is the chief of the Russian Space Agency. In the press release, Elon Musk was accused of assisting Ukraine in their fight against his nation.
“Elon Musk, thus, is involved in supplying the fascist forces in Ukraine with military communication equipment. And for this, Elon, you will be held accountable like an adult – no matter how much you’ll play the fool.”
Elon Musk provided satellite internet equipment to the Ukrainians through his StarLink service. Musk did so in response to Ukraine officials’ plea for him to help. The Tesla boss promised to provide more support after the initial activation of the service.
The Ukrainian government was appreciative of Musk’s gesture. The Russians have not taken it as well. While no specific retaliation was mentioned, Putin’s government has a long history of making undesirables disappear.
Time will tell if Elon Musk continues to receive threats from Russian officials. With heavy economic sanctions on the country and most of the civilized world supporting Ukraine, Elon seems like just a small problem. That doesn’t mean Putin’s government is above threatening an individual citizen, and Elon Musk wants everyone to know that if he disappears, it was probably Russia.
