Elon Musk in meme war with Russia-battered Ukraine after snarky anti-Zelensky swipe

In the latest development in the social media war between Ukraine and Elon Musk, the X owner took a jibe at Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky with a snarky meme.

Musk, the owner of SpaceX, a provider of crucial Starlink satellite communication services for Ukraine’s defence, has at times irked Kyiv with his remarks.

In a recent social media post on X (formerly known as Twitter), Musk posted a meme featuring Zelensky with the caption: “When it’s been 5 minutes and you haven’t asked for a billion dollars in aid.”

Zelensky and his team have consistently appealed to Western allies for substantial military aid to counter Russia’s invasion.

But it was not too long before Ruslan Stefanchuk, the speaker of Ukraine’s parliament, responded with his own post on X, humorously alluding to SpaceX’s recent failed rocket launch by saying, “The case when …(Elon Musk) tried to conquer space, but something went wrong and in 5 minutes he was up to his eyeballs in shit.”

Moreover, Ukraine’s official parliamentary page reportedly posted and deleted a meme on their X account accusing Musk of spreading Russian propaganda, depicting Musk with the caption: “When it’s been 5 minutes and you haven’t spread Russian propaganda.”

Mykhailo Podolyak, a Ukrainian presidential adviser who has criticized Musk’s comments before, emphasized on X that staying silent or making light of Ukraine’s plight played into the hands of Russian propaganda.
