Elon Musk Fears for His Life After Russian Threats
Elon Musk Fears for His Life After Russian Threats
The billionaire and CEO of Tesla supported Ukraine after the Russian invasion and did not hesitate to challenge President Vladimir Putin. Tesla  (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc Report CEO Elon Musk has never been afraid to confront his opponents publicly.
From his Silicon Valley peers like recently Bill Gates, the co-founder of software giant Microsoft  (MSFT) - Get Microsoft Corporation Report, to President Joe Biden, the richest man in the world fears no one. It's one of the qualities his more than 91.5 million Twitter followers admire. 

When the Russian invasion of Ukraine began on February 24, the serial entrepreneur was the very first CEO of a multinational to support Ukraine. Not only did Musk clearly chose kyiv, but he also sent Starlink terminals, the satellite internet connection service of his aerospace company SpaceX, to Ukraine. Not only does Starlink allow Ukrainians independent access to the internet, the service allows the country to keep in touch with the outside world. Starlink is particularly used in areas bombed by Russia and remote areas. 
The service also helps the Ukrainian authorities in the communication war against Moscow. Musk also challenged President Putin by proposing a duel with him to end this war. As of May 6, more than 3,150 civilians were killed, countless buildings have been shelled. 

'If I die'
Nearly 5.8 million Ukrainians, or around 14% of the country's population, have become refugees after fleeing to neighboring countries.
Musk's Ukrainian support has earned him criticism from some Putin loyalists who have called him names. But the criticisms now seem to have turned into threats to the life of the billionaire. The tech tycoon has indeed just posted on his Twitter account a message from Dmitry Rogozin, the head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos.
"@Rogozin sent this to Russian media," Musk wrote on Twitter on May 8. He then posted a screenshot of a text in Russian which would be the message sent to the Russian press by Rogozin.
According to the translation made by TheStreet, this text contains threats to Musk's life.
"From the testimony of the captured chief of staff of the 36th Marine Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel Dmitry Kormyankov, it follows that the ground-based subscriber equipment of the Starlink satellite company Elon Musk was delivered to the militants of the Nazi Azov Battalion and the Marines of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to Mariupol by military helicopters," Rogozin wrote.

"According to our information, the delivery and transfer to the Armed Forces of Ukraine of PO boxes for receiving and transmitting the Internet from Starlink was carried out by the Pentagon."
He therefore concludes that "Elon Musk is thus involved in the supply of fascist forces in Ukraine with military communications."
Then follows threats on the life of the CEO of Tesla.
"And for this you will have to answer in an adult way, Elon, no matter how you turn on the fool."
