On Monday, Tesla sent an email to its employees in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region saying their salaries would be paid if they were asked to go back to Ukraine and defend their country.

The email was sent from Tesla’s director of Northern Europe on behalf of the company’s HR director and senior director of the EMEA region. Tesla employees asked to return to their native home will receive pay for at least three months, according to the email.

It wasn’t clear if the opportunity was extended to employees beyond that region. Tesla will reassess the situation of the Russia-Ukraine war after paying its employees for three months. Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky called reservists to come fight for Ukraine in February, just before the invasion began.

The same email also praised Tesla employees for helping SpaceX which is also led by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, to bring the Starlink satellite internet service into Ukraine. “Tesla employees used inverters and charging cables that were donated by Tesla’s certified installers in the area to assemble the Starlink-and-Powerwall systems” reported CNBC.

Additionally, “they also fashioned AC cables from scrap at Tesla’s new factory being built outside of Berlin to help power Starlink equipment.”

    All Nato countries and all countries with a backbone should help the tiny country of Ukraine. No one should idly stand by and let a big bully beat up and destroy another! This is so absurd that there isn’t much help than can STOP this brutal man from doing this! Every one let Putin KNOW there IS a bounty on his head. No human should allow a bully to kill innocent women, men and children. It isn’t justified in any way, sake or form. One should understand, he will come after YOU next, because you have no backbone to say THIS is wrong. It’s not the right thing to allow it to happen.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
