Musk, 52, believed the Kremlin would retaliate with a nuclear attack, a fear based on his conversations with senior Russian officials, according to an excerpt from Walter Isaacson's Elon Musk.

As Ukrainian underwater drones carrying bombs approached the ships, they “lost contact and washed ashore harmlessly,” Isaacson writes.

After this, the Ukrainian authorities turned to the founder of SpaceX with a request to turn on satellite Internet back.

Isaacson reportedly wrote that Musk spoke with National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Russia's ambassador to the United States to allay concerns in Washington and Moscow.

Musk agreed to provide Ukraine with Starlink satellite terminals after Russia disabled the country's communications system ahead of the February 2022 invasion, but began to experience "existential fear" of escalating bloodshed by prompting a counter-offensive, the book says.

“How do I participate in this war? – Musk asked Isaacson. – Starlink is not intended to participate in wars. It was created for people to watch Netflix and enjoy, go online for school and do good peaceful things, not do drone strikes.”

In October 2022, Musk said he would no longer pay to operate his Starlink satellite internet in Ukraine after officials denounced his controversial proposal that Ukraine end the war by turning Crimea over to Russia and remaining neutral, but never followed up on his threat. .

He presented his peaceful solution in the form of a poll on his newly acquired Twitter platform, now renamed X. This drew approval from the Kremlin and the disapproval of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who created his own Twitter poll asking users whether they preferred Musk's pro-Russian version or the pro-Ukrainian one. version of a tech tycoon.
