Elon Musk said that his space company SpaceX will continue to finance the Starlink internet service in Ukraine.
Elon Musk said on Saturday that rocket company SpaceX will continue to fund Starlink internet service in Ukraine, citing the need for “good deeds,” a day after declaring he could no longer afford it.
Musk tweeted: “Hell… even though Starlink is still losing money and other companies are making billions of dollars from taxpayers, we will continue to fund the Ukrainian government for free.”
Musk said on Friday that SpaceX cannot fund Starlink in Ukraine indefinitely. The service helped civilians and military personnel stay online during the war with Russia.
Although it wasn’t immediately clear if Musk’s change of heart was real, he later seemed to indicate it. When a Twitter user told Musk, “No good deed goes unpunished,” he replied, “However, we still have to do good deeds.”
The billionaire has engaged in online battles with Ukrainian officials over a peace plan he has put forward that Ukraine says is too generous to Russia.
He made his comments on the funding Friday after a media report that SpaceX had asked the Pentagon to pay Starlink donations.
SpaceX did not respond to a request for comment. The Pentagon declined to comment.
