“Elon Musk must remotely turn off all Tesla cars in Russia and Belarus!” That is what Musk fans are pushing for on Twitter. However, the head of Tesla reacted with a different measure in support of Ukraine.

Twitter users have asked American entrepreneur and visionary Elon Musk to block the systems of all Tesla electric cars in Russia and Belarus. However, Musk does not seem to be enthusiastic about the idea. He presented his different idea, which will help fleeing Ukrainians, while helping Western countries.

Free charging “Supercharging stations” in Ukraine's western neighbors

The head of Tesla decided to provide his own “Supercharging” stations in Poland, Hungary and Slovakia free of charge to Ukrainian refugees. In this way, they will be facilitated on their way to freedom. In addition, organizations helping Ukrainians will reduce their spending in these areas.

Musk's second aid campaign after the Starlink Internet

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Musk has provided a stable Internet connection in Ukraine at the request of Ukrainian Digitalization Minister Mykhailo Fedorov. To this end, he provided Ukraine with his Starlink satellite system. He also sends satellite, cable, and router passwords to affected areas. Musk will pay quarterly salaries to Ukrainian Tesla employees if they take part in hostilities and defend their homeland.

Auto Trendy’s take:

Elon Musk teaches the world to be good and help each other by example. He shows a great way of applying technological achievements of the automotive industry to help people at difficult times, and on their way to freedom. As much good as electric cars are for the environment and the air that we breathe, providing people with free energy at their most tragic of times is a gesture not to be forgotten. We, at Auto Trendy, believe that Elon Musk is contributing a lot to humanity and to building a good image of the automotive world, and we thank him.
