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.”

The Guardian Removes Osama bin Laden’s “Letter to America” Amidst Viral Resurfacing
The Guardian, a left-wing media outlet, has taken down Osama bin Laden’s notorious “Letter to America” from its website this week after the words of the deceased terrorist mastermind, responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001, gained traction on social media.
The letter, which had been published on The Guardian’s website since 2002, resurfaced online, causing a sudden spike in traffic. Social media users unearthed and shared the anti-American and antisemitic content, propelling the document to viral status. The Guardian, acknowledging the increased circulation without the full context, opted to remove the transcript.
According to reports from Fox News Digital, a spokesperson for The Guardian stated, “The transcript published on our website 20 years ago has been widely shared on social media without the full context. Therefore we have decided to take it down and direct readers to the news article that originally contextualized it instead.” The outlet declined to provide additional comments on the matter.
Osama bin Laden’s letter, translated into English, justified al-Qaeda’s attacks against the U.S. by citing American actions in Palestine. The deceased terrorist accused the U.S. of supporting the creation and continuation of Israel, labeling it one of the “greatest crimes” that must be erased. Bin Laden’s letter also propagated antisemitic tropes, claiming Jews control American policies, media, and the economy.
The 9/11 attacks, orchestrated by al-Qaeda, resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people and left thousands more injured. The letter’s resurgence occurred as it was shared by social media influencers on platforms like TikTok, with some expressing a change in perspective. Pro-Palestinian activist Lynette Adkins was among those who shared the letter online, prompting discussions and reflections.
The Guardian’s decision to remove the letter from its website underscores the sensitivity surrounding the content and its potential impact, particularly as young individuals across America engage with pro-Palestinian talking points. The episode has sparked debates about the influence of social media in reshaping perceptions and the responsibility of media outlets in disseminating controversial historical documents.
