This one’s been cycling through the news as of late. Don’t mistake me for someone who is an Elon Musk fan. Not the case at all. I’m just not a fan of spin, misrepresentation and bullshit. Elon withheld satellite service to Ukraine. All of this is tied to a book that has recently been published.
The service was never cut off. Because it was never connected.
This non existent service is alleged to have covered Crimea, which is Russian territory.
Crimean citizens voted to join Russia. In a referendum. Remember?
Some 95.5% of voters in Crimea have supported joining Russia,officials say, after half the votes have been counted in a disputed referendum.
Crimea's leader says he will apply to join Russia on Monday. Russia’s Vladimir Putin has said he will respect the Crimean people’s wishes.
The people in Crimea, saw for themselves, what the Ukrainians had done in the East- Donetsk (DPR) They saw the atrocities committed by the Ukrnazis in Odessa and they threw their support to Russia. The vast majority of them being ethnic Russians!
Ukrainian Defence Intelligence representative believes that the information about billionaire Elon Musk ordering the disconnection of Starlink over Crimea to disrupt an attack on the Russian fleet should be carefully checked.
Elon Musk acknowledged that
there was no connectivity.
Therefore there was nothing to disconnect. And Musk must surely understand that Crimea is Russian territory and has been for nearly a decade.
Can’t disconnect what is not connected
Making this whole story an exercise in bullshit and distraction. But why? Because
the Ukrainian counter offensive is going nowhere.
And a distraction from this reality is needed and desired.So, it's created.
