Russian threats make Elon Musk fear for his safety

Tesla Inc Report: CEO Elon Musk has never been afraid of confronting his opponents in public.

His Silicon Valley peers, including Bill Gates (MSFT – Get Microsoft Corporation Report), to President Joe Biden, Joe Biden is the richest man on the planet.

The serial entrepreneur was the first CEO of a multinational company to support Ukraine after the Russian invasion of Ukraine started on February 24. Musk chose Kyiv and sent Starlink terminals to Ukraine, his satellite internet connection service. Starlink allows Ukrainians to have independent internet access and keeps them in touch with the rest of the world. Starlink is especially useful in remote and bombed areas.

This service aids the Ukrainian authorities in their fight against Moscow’s communication war. Musk challenged President Putin and proposed a duel to end the war. More than 3,150 civilians had been killed as of May 6, and many buildings were shelled.

‘If I die.’

Nearly 5 million Ukrainians have fled to neighboring countries, which is 14% of the country’s population.

Some Putin loyalists have criticized Musk for his Ukrainian support. They even called him names. The billionaire’s life appears to be in danger due to these criticisms. Dmitry Rogozin (head of Roscosmos Russian space agency Roscosmos) posted a message to the tech tycoon on his Twitter account.

Musk posted a screenshot of a text in Russian that he had sent to Russian media on Twitter on May 8. Musk then posted a screenshot of the text he had just written, which was the message Rogozin forwarded to the Russian media.

According to TheStreet’s translation, this text includes threats to Musk’s life.

Rogozin stated that Colonel Dmitry Kormyankov (captured chief of staff of 36th Marine Brigade of Armed Forces of Ukraine) testified that the ground-based subscriber equipment of Starlink satellite company Elon Musk was delivered by military helicopters to militants of Nazi Azov Battalion and Marines of Armed Forces of Ukraine to Mariupol.

According to our information, the Pentagon was responsible for delivering and transferring PO boxes to the Armed Forces of Ukraine to receive and transmit the Internet via Starlink.

According to him, Musk was thus implicated in supplying Ukrainian fascist forces with military communications.

There are threats to the CEO of Tesla’s life.

“And for that you will have to answer in an adults way, Elon. No matter how much you try to turn on the fool.”

Rogozin was the deputy prime minister in 2014. Russia’s first incursion into Ukraine was launched in 2014. Russia seized Crimea.

Musk seems to take these threats seriously.

The billionaire wrote, “If I die in mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowing ya.” He previously tweeted his concern about Rogozin’s use of the term “nazi” in a previous tweet.

The billionaire stated that “Nazi” does not mean what he thinks it does.”

Musk tweeted another few hours later, in which he promised to do all he could to keep alive.

“Sorry! “Sorry!

“We must protect you at all costs.”

TheStreet couldn’t access Rogozin’s Twitter account, which can only be accessed after approval. As a result, TheStreet can’t confirm that the threat text was sent and relies on Musk for confirmation.

Rogozin has not only attacked Musk before, but he also made threats to the billionaire. Rogozin already attacked Musk after suggesting a deadly fight between Putin and him.

Rogozin sent Musk a tweet in March saying, “You, little devil are still young.” He was quoting a fairytale by Alexander Pushkin, a Russian poet known for hiding political messages in his stories. “Compete against me weak; It will only be a waste of time. Take my brother’s place first.

Musk’s posts have attracted a lot of sympathy from Twitter users. However, many people have asked him to increase security around himself.

Anthony Pompliano, a crypto investor and influencer, said, “We must protect you.” “Humanity depends on you.”

“If you feel the urge to, increase your security. Sawyer Merritt, a Tesla investor, commented that the world needs you.

“Are your assuming assassination of Russian forces?” Another user added.

Musk is under threat on May 9, according to threats. This date celebrates the victory of the Soviet Union over Nazi Germany in 1945 and has been known as “Victory Day” (Russian).
