The multi-billionaire and owner of Space
In the September 18 post on X (formerly Twitter), Musk wrote “So much death for so little” apparently in line with a post by David Sacks, a venture capitalist and friend of Musk – who has criticized US support for Ukraine.

So much death for so little

James Kirchick, a journalist for Politico, wrote back in 2016: “As for the center, both it and its magazine, the National Interest, are two of the most Kremlin-sympathetic institutions in the nation’s capital, even more so than Carnegie Moscow. “Center that has evolved from a center of Russian liberalism into an accommodative, intellectually compromised think tank.”
Although Musk had many followers of X, many expressed their anger and displeasure at the Space X and Tesla CEO’s comment.
“Elon…Please stick to cars,” one user wrote.
Another wrote under the name “Scribbles”: “It’s a fight for freedom against a genocidal invader. It’s not so little, it’s everything.”
Who controls Andriivka? Russia denies Ukraine’s liberation claims, but the evidence suggests the opposite
The now completely destroyed village is the subject of competing claims from Kiev and Moscow, but available evidence suggests that Ukrainian troops have the upper hand.
“Russia can end this at any time by leaving Ukraine. Ukraine has the right to fight to the death against any invader. This is what freedom means,” wrote another.
The American Revolutionary War lasted eight years and four months before the British were finally convinced to abandon it and go home. Russia can end this at any time by leaving Ukraine. Ukraine has the right to fight to the death against any invader. That’s what freedom means.

In another post, the same person said: “Freedom is bought with blood and suffering. Anyone who believes that freedom lies in ‘peace’ and ‘negotiations’ will soon lose their freedoms completely.”
While another user wrote: “Also: your choices [with regards to] Starlink activated RU and gave it time. NOW are you complaining about the result? GMAB [Give me a break].”

Musk said he made the decision out of fear that Moscow would retaliate with nuclear weapons.
“If I had agreed to their request, SpaceX would have been explicitly involved in a major act of war and escalation of conflict,” Musk said.
The move sparked an immediate backlash in Ukraine.
“Sometimes a mistake is more than just a mistake. By not allowing Ukrainian drones to destroy part of the Russian military fleet (!) through Starlink interference, Elon Musk allowed this fleet to fire Kalibr missiles at Ukrainian cities. As a result, civilians and children are killed. That’s the price of a cocktail of ignorance and big ego.” Wrote Mykhailo Podolyak, a senior adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The American historian Timothy Snyder was also extremely critical of the multi-billionaire in an editorial published in the Guardian.
“The Ukrainians made this decision under stress because if a weapon were detonated, it would be on their territory. Musk, who was in no danger whatsoever, chose instead to give in to nuclear blackmail, thereby encouraging more of it,” Snyder wrote.
Snyder argued that Musk’s decisions gave the Russians time to build more fortifications and lay mines, which are now slowing Ukraine’s counteroffensive.
Ukraine has recently had success with its fierce counteroffensive.
On Saturday and then Monday, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) announced the liberation of the villages of Andriivka and Klishchiivka – both setting the stage for a possible attack on the Russian-occupied city of Bakhmut.
