The world will inevitably realize that the Russian invasion of Ukraine is spilling over into something much, much larger on the global stage. This isn’t just about the Donbas, or Kyiv, or Moldova next. This is about Russia testing out the theory that they can whatever they want as long as they threaten everyone with nukes while they’re doing it.
So far, it appears that this is working, and that’s not a good sign for the order of things internationally.
But the conflict will also drag other notable entities into its orbit, and it will do so repeatedly.
The first to find themselves as an auxiliary character in this b-grade doomsday movie is Elon Musk.
Musk took to Twitter and said, “If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowin ya.”
People took to the comment section to address the world’s richest man’s concerning post.
“No, you will not die. The world needs you to reform,” one user said in the comments.
“Why would you even play like that?” another worried fan said.
Musk’s trouble with the Kremlin stems from the use of his Starlink satellites in Ukraine.
“The word ‘Nazi’ doesn’t mean what he seems to think it does,” Musk said and attached what appears to be a translation from a Russian media outlet.
“From the testimony of the captured commander of the 36th Marine Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel Dmitry Kormyankov, it turns out that the internet terminals of Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite company were delivered to the militants of the Nazi Azov Battalion and the Ukrainian Marines in Mariupol by military helicopters,” Musk’s post reads.
“According to our information, the delivery of the Starlink equipment was carried out by the Pentagon.”
“Elon Musk, thus, is involved in supplying the fascist forces in Ukraine with military communication equipment. And for this, Elon, you will be held accountable like an adult – no matter how much you’ll play the fool,” it continued.
Musk recently made waves by purchasing Twitter for $44 billion with the stated purpose of “unlocking” the app’s free speech potential.
