Elon Musk's SpaceX to fund Ukraine's Starlink despite 'losing money'

Elon Musk said on Saturday that his rocket company SpaceX would continue to fund its Starlink internet service in Ukraine, a day after he said it could no longer afford to do so.

Musk tweeted: "the hell with it … even though starlink is still losing money & other companies are getting billions of taxpayer $, we'll just keep funding Ukraine govt for free".

It was not immediately clear whether Musk's offer was genuine or if he was expressing sarcasm.
