Elon Musk changes tune, says SpaceX will 'keep funding Ukraine' after asking for government support
Elon Musk will ‘reluctantly’ close deal with Twitter: Scott Galloway
‘Adrift’ author Scott Galloway discusses how Wall Street feels about Musk’s potential deal with Twitter and who wins if the sale is finalized on ‘The Claman Countdown.’
Elon Musk's Starlink will "keep funding Ukraine" after SpaceX asked the Pentagon for funding to continue the company's operations in the European country.
Musk made the announcement in a tweet on Saturday afternoon after sending a letter to the Pentagon in September stating that the company can't continue to keep funding Starlink services to Ukraine.
"The hell with it … even though Starlink is still losing money & other companies are getting billions of taxpayer $, we’ll just keep funding Ukraine govt for free," Musk said in the tweet.
The September letter from Musk's SpaceX to the Pentagon in its request for funding further said that the company's cost for funding both the Ukraine military and government use of Starlink costs over $120 million through the end of 2022, and might come close to $400 million for the next year.
