Musk Admitted He Intervened to Protect the Russian Black Sea Fleet


A top adviser to Ukraine’s president accused Elon Musk of enabling Russian aggression, after the billionaire entrepreneur acknowledged denying satellite internet service in order to prevent a Ukrainian drone attack on a Russian naval fleet last year.

The Starlink satellite internet service, which is operated by Mr. Musk’s rocket company SpaceX, has been a digital lifeline in Ukraine since the early days of the war for both civilians and soldiers in areas where digital infrastructure has been wiped out.
...
Later on Thursday, Mr. Musk responded on his social media platform to say that he hadn’t disabled the service but had rather refused to comply with an emergency request from Ukrainian officials to enable Starlink connections to Sevastopol on the occupied Crimean peninsula. That was in effect an acknowledgment that he had made the decision to prevent a Ukrainian attack
.

Unfortunately, this is what happens when a man with an oversized ego and bloated sense of self-importance meddles in international affairs. Musk has a whiff of Henry Ford about him, in that Ford was and Musk is an antisemetic asshole who believe that being a rich jackhole translates into wisdom about foreign policy and military strategy.

So, as the Ukranians have pointed out, the Russians have been free to keep firing missiles into Ukranian cities because Musk has done (and probably has continued to keep doing) what he can to protect the Russians from the consequences of waging a war of aggression.
