Ukraine Expresses Outrage at Elon Musk's Role in Preventing Attack on Russian Navy
Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk faces backlash from Ukraine as revelations surface about his alleged interference in a major military operation targeting the Russian navy. An upcoming biography by historian Walter Isaacson suggests that Musk ordered his engineers to deactivate the Starlink satellite network over Russian-occupied Crimea in order to prevent a Ukrainian drone attack on Russia's naval fleet. Musk's concerns reportedly revolved around the potential escalation of tensions and nuclear conflict. Ukraine swiftly criticized Musk's actions, with Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, condemning him for preventing Ukrainian drones from targeting the Russian fleet. Musk responded, denying that he deactivated the service but admitting he chose not to enable the attack to avoid direct involvement in the war. He explained that agreeing to the request would have made SpaceX complicit in a significant act of war. The allegations highlight the evolving role of technology companies in modern conflicts. Musk's previous controversial statements and actions related to Ukraine and Russia have also drawn significant attention, reflecting his complex involvement in international geopolitics.
Ukraine is furious at Elon Musk for cutting off Starlink during a sneak attack on a Russian ship
In order to stop a Ukrainian attack on Russian troops last year, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, told engineers to turn off Starlink's satellite network over Crimea. This was criticized by a Ukrainian official. A new biography of Musk says that in a chat with author Walter Isaacson, the billionaire from South Africa asked, "How am I in this war?" The first of Musk's Starlink terminals arrived in Ukraine in the early days of Russia's unprovoked attack. At the same time, Western governments were working to send artillery and air defense systems to Kyiv. The billionaire finally became unhappy with the deal. There were no plans for Starlink to get involved in wars. "Musk said it was so people could watch Netflix, hang out, do schoolwork online, and do other good, peaceful things, not launch drone attacks," the book says. Isaacson asked him what he was afraid about: the attack on Russian ships by Ukraine would make the Kremlin start a nuclear war. The title of the book is "Elon Musk," and it comes out on Tuesday. An important aide to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine slammed Musk for the news. "Elon Musk let the Russian military fire Kalibr missiles at Ukrainian cities by not letting Ukrainian drones destroy part of the Russian military fleet through Starlink interference," Mykhailo Podolyak wrote Thursday on social media after CNN talked about some of Isaacson's book's details. "Because of this, civilians, kids are dying." "This is what happens when you mix ignorance with a big ego," he said on X, which used to be called Twitter. There are more than 4,000 satellites in SpaceX's Starlink network, which serves more than 50 countries. When it comes to Ukraine, Starlink has been the key to important battlefield contacts. Isaacson also said that Musk's choice was talked about with Jake Sullivan, who is President Joe Biden's national security assistant, and Gen. Mark Milley, who is Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Isaacson says that Musk was also texting with Fedorov. The official asked Musk to fix Starlink's connection so that the attack on Russia's warship fleet could be done by Ukrainian submarine drones. The answer Musk gave was that he believed Ukraine was "going too far and inviting strategic defeat," as Isaacson's book says. If the Ukrainian attacks had been able to sink the Russian fleet, Musk said, "I think it would have been like a mini Pearl Harbor and led to a major escalation." "That wasn't something we wanted to be a part of." https://www.cnbc.com/2023/09/07/ukraine-rips-musk-disrupting-sneak-attack-russian-navy.html.
