Elon Musk expressed concern over the weekend of his apparent inclusion in a Ukrainian “kill list” called Myrotvorets following his calls for the Zelensky government in Kiev to parley with its Russian counterparts, and build a road to peace.
Late Friday, the Tesla CEO responded to a viral tweet by independent journalist Eva Bartlett, which showed a screenshot of his brief addition to the so-called “kill list,” which includes the names of thousands of Russian figures and numerous Western figures unfriendly to the Ukrainian government.
Among the thousands of names listed on the website, some of which are listed as “liquidated” to indicate that they have been killed, former U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is on the list alongside other prominent figures like Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
The site accused the politicians of spreading “Russian propaganda” and of being “accomplices” to crimes against Ukraine.
As detailed by many responses to Musk’s inquiry, several well-known Ukrainians and Russians whose names and addresses were published on the list were murdered.
Having confirmed the answer to his question, Musk later tweeted out a link to Myrotvorets’ Wikipedia page, which details how it has been the subject of controversy for several years after its establishment following the Euromaidan uprising.
The German Federal Foreign Office called on the Ukrainian government to shut down the site, protesting against the addition of former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder to its “Enemies of the State” list after he defended Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea.
Louder Sound reported earlier this month that former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters was added to the “kill list” after he voiced his opinions on the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, stating his belief that American intervention was “fuelling the war in Ukraine” and that Biden was making a mistake by failing to encourage Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to negotiate peace with Russia.
