Tesla CEO Elon Musk on May 8, 2022, posted a seemingly sarcastic tweet about his possible death under mysterious events after sharing an alleged note by Russian space agency chief Dmitry Rogozin that mentioned him and the Pentagon.
What Happened: According to an alleged note from Rogozin to Russian media, Musk will face consequences for “supplying the fascist troops in Ukraine with military communication equipment” – a reference to SpaceX Starlink terminals.
Musk published a translation of the text, which was originally written in Russian. It was not possible to confirm the veracity of Rogozin’s purported words right away.
Rogozin, who heads Roscosmos, allegedly says the Starlink satellites were delivered by the Pentagon “to the militants of the Nazi Azov Battalion and the Ukrainian Marines in Mariupol.”
“And for this, Elon, you will be held accountable like an adult – no matter how much you’ll play the fool.”
The billionaire entrepreneur joked he could die under “mysterious circumstances.”
Why It Matters: The richest man in the world has publicly backed Ukraine throughout its ongoing Russian invasion, acting swiftly in response to its request for Starlink terminals to restore connectivity in February.
Since then, hundreds of satellite internet kits for hospitals and other vital infrastructure have been delivered to Ukraine by SpaceX.
If the Pentagon assisted SpaceX with the delivery, Musk has not said.
Mykhailo Fedorov, the vice prime minister of Ukraine, praised Musk for his support last week and said that Starlink had acquired roughly 150,000 customers in the country in just over two months.
