Elon Musk, NATO |  Tesla CEO receives heavy criticism after NATO actions

The message of the Tesla founder and SpaceX chief was reproduced by Russian propaganda channels such as R.T (formerly Russia Today) and Sputnik.

Musk writes in X that he is surprised that the defense alliance did not cease to exist after the end of the Cold War.

“I have long wondered why NATO continues to exist despite the disintegration of its arch-enemy and foundation of its existence, the Warsaw Pact,” Musk writes.

The Warsaw Pact was a defensive alliance between the Soviet Union and its Eastern Bloc allies during the Cold War.
