The CEO of Tesla says he fears for his life following Russian threats made against him. Elon Musk made his farewell words via his Twitter account after being threatened by the head of the Russian space agency, Dmitry Rogozin, for deploying the Starlink network in Ukraine.
"If I die under mysterious circumstances it was a pleasure to meet you," he tweeted.
After a request from the Ukrainian government, the SpaceX boss deployed his Starlink network in Ukraine so that residents could benefit from a high-speed internet connection via satellites. What Russia saw with a bad eye.
The former Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation is now targeting the richest man on the planet for taking his aid to Ukraine.
On Telegram Rogozin states that Musk provides communication equipment to “Ukrainian fascist forces”.
In reply, the 50-year-old multi-billionaire replied on Twitter that he did not know the definition of the word “fascist” well, adding: “If I die in mysterious circumstances, I was delighted to know you. »
Elon's response to the Russian official caused controversy over the Blue Bird, but his mother, Maye Musk did not appreciate her son's statements, saying that she did not find it "funny".
" Sorry ! I will do my best to stay alive,” the South African-born replied to his mother.
Remember that Elon Musk openly displays his support for Ukraine in his tweets, and has already been there several times since the start of the war. On March 5, we even saw him in a video talking with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
