Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk put up a cryptic tweet, suggesting that his life could be in danger due to a statement issued by the chief of Russia’s space agency.

Musk put up the tweet not long after he shared a message from Dmitry Rogozin who accused him of being involved in the fascist forces in Ukraine with military communication equipment.

“If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowing ya,” Musk posted on Twitter on Sunday night.

“And for this, Elon, you will be held accountable like an adult – no matter how much you’ll play the fool,” the former deputy Russian prime minister said.

It was in February when Musk provided SpaceX Starlink terminals to Ukraine at the request of top government officials, worried that they could lose Internet access due to the Russian attacks.

The terminals were able to get internet access from SpaceX’s 2,000 satellites, assuring locals that they could get online even if internet service would be cut.

Rogozin lashed out at Starlink on Sunday for enabling the “Nazi Azov Battalion” to access the internet, Fox News reported.

“From the testimony of the captured commander of the 35th Marine Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel Dmitry Kormyankov, it turns out that the internet terminals of Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite company were delivered to the militants of the Nazi Azov Battalion and the Ukrainian Marines in Mariupol by military helicopters,” Rogozin in response to Musk’s post.

However, Musk explained that the word “Nazi” does not stand for what he thinks it is.

Russia has repeatedly cited the Azov Battalion — a national guard unit based in Mariupol — as justification for its invasion of Ukraine in a “denazification” effort.

The tweet Musk drew attention, particularly his mother, Maye Musk. She said that her son’s tweet was not funny.

“Sorry! I will do my best to stay alive,” Musk assured her.
