On May 8, Dmitry Rogozin, head of Russia's state space company Roscosmos, accused Elon Musk of assisting "fascist forces in Ukraine."
"The ground-based subscriber equipment of Elon Musk's Starlink satellite company was delivered to the militants of the nazi battalion Azov and the marines of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Mariupol by military helicopters. Elon Musk is thus involved in supplying fascist forces in Ukraine with military communications. And for this, you will have to answer in an adult way, Elon, no matter how you turn on the fool."
Elon Musk did not ignore this Russian nonsense and decided to troll the head of the company, which, due to sanctions against Russia, no longer has any functionality. In a response tweet, Musk translated Rogozin’s statement into English and succinctly commented: "The word "Nazi" doesn’t mean what he seems to think it does."
Rogozin has a special dislike for Musk, so the Russian started attacking a person who really knows what progress is, long ago and with an enviable regularity. My favorite Rogozin's tantrum is related to sanctions. When almost the entire world community condemned Russia for attacking Ukraine and foreign companies began to refuse to cooperate with the state one by one, Rogozin tried to manipulate on the indispensability of the ISS. On February 26, Rogozin hinted on Twitter that the ISS could "accidentally" crash into the United States, and only Russia could stop it.
"If you block cooperation with us, who will save the ISS from an uncontrolled deorbit and fall into the United States or ...", Rogozin.
To which Elon Musk attached the SpaceX logo in a comment. Ukrainians love good humor and technology with us on the same wavelength.
We remind you that on April 27, a Starlink representative office opened in Ukraine.
