MOSCOW, October 16. /TASS/. Rodion Miroshnik, a representative of the Lugansk People’s Republic in Moscow, has said US businessman Elon Musk held on to his status of a sponsor of terrorism after he said on Saturday that his SpaceX company would continue to pay for Starlink telecoms services in Ukraine.
"Musk, now officially, has kept his status of a sponsor of a terrorist regime, incurring losses all the while," Miroshnik told TASS.
"The Ukrainian regime is just a lap dog that has a master. The master in the face of the Pentagon and the US government is the biggest customer for Elon Musk’s companies. So, when moaning started to emanate from the regime of [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky, the master reacted. They put pressure on Musk and he, out of fear to lose major contracts, is forced to assume the extra commitment to bankroll the satellite constellation that’s used to provide intelligence data to Ukrainian armed gangs," the LPR official said.
