While on earth, in the streets of Ukraine, fighting rages, space is not spared from tensions either. As kyiv prepares for a Russian assault, Elon Musk has assured that he will save the International Space Station if Russia tries to knock it out of orbit. An intervention which follows the threats brandished by the director general of the Russian space agency.
“If you block cooperation with us, who will save the ISS from uncontrolled deorbiting and falling on the United States and Europe? “, declared on Twitter the so-called Dmitry Rogozin, on February 25.
A user, who translated this statement, said that Elon Musk had responded to the latter by referring to SpaceX. The billionaire confirmed it with a simple “yes”.
This is not the first time that Elon Musk has taken a stand against Russia since the start of the conflict. He has already taken the liberty of activating Starlink satellites in order to guarantee Ukrainians smooth access to the Internet.
A terribly important decision as Ukraine is the victim of multiple cyberattacks. The websites of Ukraine’s foreign ministry, cabinet of ministers and parliament all went offline for several hours following an attack that also hit several banks in the country.
