"I’ve donated $100M to Ukraine, how much have you donated?

(We turned down the DoD money btw)."

Details: At the same time, Musk reposted a tweet from Mykhailo Fedorov, Head of Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation, dated 24 October. In that tweet, the minister thanked the billionaire for Starlinks working in Ukraine.

Background: On 22 April, American writer Stephen King proposed that Twitter owner Elon Musk transfer money spent on a blue check mark for verifying the writer's page on the social network to Serhii Prytula's Charity Fund [Prytula is a Ukrainian public and political figure, who since the beginning of the full-scale invasion focused on fundraising money for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine – ed.]
