Dmitry Rogozin, a close friend of Vladimir Putin and head of the Russian space agency, published a long text in which he declared that the boss of Starlink will have to “response for his help given” to the Ukrainian armed forces.
” If I die under mysterious circumstances, I was happy to know you “, ironically tweeted Elon Musk on May 9. The sulphurous billionaire was taken to task by Dmitri Rogozine, the head of the Russian space agency, in a publication on his personal Telegram channel. He published a long message in which he accuses the boss of Starlink of having helped the Ukrainian armed forces of Mariupol which he describes as Nazis – according to Kremlin propaganda – by providing connection kits to the company’s satellite network .
” According to our information, the delivery and transfer to the Ukrainian armed forces of the Starlink Internet receiver and transmission boxes was carried out by the Pentagon. Thus, Elon Musk participated in the supply of fascist forces in Ukraine with military communication equipment. And you’ll have to answer for your actions like an adult, Elon, no matter how silly you play. »
Elon Musk posted the translation of the message on his Twitter account adding that “ the term Nazi does not mean what it [Dmitri Rogozine] seems to believe.”
Help from the start of the invasion
Elon Musk decided very early on to help Ukraine. Just two days after the start of the Russian invasion – on February 24 – Mykhailo Fedorov, the Ukrainian Minister of Digital, calls on the boss of Starlink on Twitter to mobilize his network so that the country maintains an internet connection. Elon Musk responds favorably in stride and the images of the first antennas are shared a few days later.
British media also reported that the Starlink network was helping the Ukrainian military unit specializing in drones to fly devices used against the Russian army. Images of foreign volunteer soldiers also show that Starlink is used by the army.
The Washington Post reported that nearly a third of the 5,000 patch kits provided to Ukraine were funded by the US government.
Dmitry Rogozin says Elon Musk will have to ” respond like an adult for help “. The head of the Russian space agency has a habit of launching sulphurous threats. This politician close to Vladimir Putin is also followed by more than 80,000 people on the Telegram channel.
Just after publishing his post on Elon Musk, Dmitry Rogozin declares in a long text ” that in the event of a nuclear war, Russia could destroy all NATO countries in half an hour ” but “so as not to affect the whole earth […] we must defeat NATO in a conventional way “.
There is no reason to believe that all this scares Elon Musk.
