Estonia: Elon Musk chose not to save lives: Foreign Minister

Estonia’s Foreign Minister, Margus Tsahkna, criticised US technology entrepreneur Elon Musk for denying Ukraine access to his astronautics company SpaceX’s satellite network, Starlink, ERR reports. Tsahkna noted that Musk had an opportunity to shorten the war in Ukraine and save lives, but chose not to do so. Musk said that he had refused Ukraine’s request to activate the Starlink network for an attack on Russia’s Black Sea Fleet stationed in Russian-occupied Crimea. Doing so would have made SpaceX “complicit in a major act of war and conflict escalation,” he explained. Critics say Musk’s decision allowed Russia to launch missile attacks against Ukraine, including on civilian targets.
