Months ago, the billionaire Elon Musk decided to get involved in the conflict arising from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and he did so by giving away his Starlink satellites to the invaded for free so that they could maintain their communications.
But a few days ago rumors arose that Musk could be considering changing his mind, given the high costs of the operation: about 80 million dollars, which could reach 100 by the end of the year.
A couple of days ago, Musk denied the withdrawal of the satellites and this Saturday, the tycoon delved into his intentions. The head of SpaceX and Starlink wrote about it on his Twitter account.
The comments in this thread are a conspiracy theorist’s wet dream

“To hell with it… even though Starlink is still losing money and other companies are taking in billions of dollars from taxpayers, we will continue to fund the Ukrainian government for free!” he said.
Musk’s tweet received numerous interactions, before which the billionaire, who is not usually cut off on Twitter, added another tweet: “The comments in this thread are a conspiracy theorist’s wet dream.”
Volodimir Zelenski himself , a few days ago, put pressure on Musk on Twitter by publishing a poll asking his followers which version of the tycoon they preferred, the one who supported Ukraine or the one who supported Russia.
