The head of Russia’s space agency has warned Tesla CEO Elon Musk over his ambitions to give internet connection to Ukraine. Back in April, the billionaire said they had’resisted Russian hacking and jamming attempts’ and were focussing SpaceX’s efforts on countermeasures – at the expense of other projects. On Sunday night, Musk tweeted information sent to the Russian media by Dmitry Rogozin, the chairman of the Russian space agency Roscosmos. Rogozin made the comment on Telegram personally. Rogozin, who only yesterday boasted that Russia could bomb all NATO countries ‘in half an hour,’ accused Musk of providing Starlink equipment to the ‘Nazi Azov Battalion,’ as well as Ukrainian military departments.
‘It follows from the testimony of Colonel Dmitry Kormyankov, the captured chief of staff of the 36th Marine Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, that the Starlink satellite company’s ground-based subscriber equipment was delivered to militants of the Nazi Azov Battalion and the Marines of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to Mariupol by military helicopters,’ Rogozin wrote.
