UK Defence Secretary criticised Elon Musk for “unhelpful” comment on Ukraine

Grant Shapps responded to recent tweets by the SpaceX chief, saying the billionaire’s comments mocking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky were “unhelpful”, according to The Independent.

The senior cabinet minister made the comments at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester, hours after Elon Musk had used X, formerly known as Twitter, to mock Zelensky’s repeated requests for Western support in the war against Russia.

Shapps also expressed doubts about Owner X’s recent attitude towards the war.

“I think it’s unhelpful, to be blunt. I can’t speak for him or his motivations. He’s a free individual, we live in a free world. He can tweet or X what he likes.”

What Ukraine really needs is strong and steady friends who won’t waver.

Musk’s actions provoked a strong reaction from the Ukrainian government, forcing politicians to respond to the billionaire’s taunt.
