Elon Musk thinks the Russian government is out to get him — maybe kill him — and he’s exposing the threat he received that supports his theory. Elon just tweeted, “If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowin ya.”
As for what prompted the tweet, a guy named Dmitry Rogozin, Chief of Russia’s Space Agency, sent a statement to Russian media accusing Elon of assisting Ukraine in Russia’s brutal war against the country. Rogozin accused Elon of being “involved in supplying the fascist forces in Ukraine with military communication equipment.”
And then, the ominous warning … “And for this, Elon, you will be held accountable like an adult – no matter how much you’ll play the fool.” As for linking Rogozin’s statement to Elon’s tweet, it’s pretty obvious … Elon tweeted 6 minutes after Rogozin released his statement. Elon’s SpaceX Starlink terminals are now being used by Ukrainian forces to keep the Internet and therefore communications strong as Russia tries to disable it. It’s a critical link in fighting the war.
Rogozin went on … “From the testimony of the captured commander of the 35th Marine Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel Dmitry Kormyankov, it turns out that the internet terminals of Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite company were delivered to the militants of the Nazi Azov Battalion and the Ukrainian Marines in Mariupol by military helicopters.”
Musk’s mom, Maye, was shaken by Elon’s tweet, responding, “That’s not funny.” It’s dangerous being Elon Musk.
