Tesla to Provide Three Months Pay for Ukrainians Called Home to Fight in War

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.

Palestinians in Gaza stealing food aid before it can be delivered, ‘nothing getting through’

The United Nations has proven to be incredibly trustworthy and bias against Israel as it fights for its survival against Hamas. Senior U.N. aid official Edem Wosornu said there were “insufficient supplies and fuel to provide any meaningful level of support to the people of Gaza as they endure Israel’s military onslaught against Hamas militants.”

However, food and medicine for Palestinians in Gaza are piling up in Egypt because the Rafah crossing remains closed and there has been no aid delivered to a U.N. warehouse from a U.S.-built pier for two days, reports Reuters.

National Review explains the issue: the food aid is getting stolen before it can reach the World Food Program warehouse . . . just eight miles away. Once the food aid leaves the pier, the United Nations, international partners, and the “humanitarian community” oversee getting the aid to those who need it most. And they’re getting robbed, hijacked, and mugged.

The Gaza Pier is complete and operational, which is what the Biden administration wanted, allowing for headlines such as: “U.S. military starts delivering aid to Gaza through floating pier” this past weekend. However, “what you’re not as likely to hear about is what happens to the aid after it leaves the pier” writes National Review.

Apparently some Palestinians stole so much of the aid from the first shipments that the following shipments are on hold until authorities can find enough security.

Reuters tells the grim tale:

Aid deliveries began arriving at a U.S.-built pier on Friday as Israel comes under growing global pressure to allow more supplies into the besieged coastal enclave. The U.N. agreed to assist in coordinating aid distribution from the floating pier, but has remained adamant that deliveries by land are the best way to combat the crisis.

The U.N. said that 10 truckloads of food aid – transported from the pier site by U.N. contractors – were received on Friday at a World Food Program warehouse in Deir El Balah in Gaza.

But on Saturday, only five truckloads made it to the warehouse after 11 others were cleaned out by Palestinians during the journey through an area that a U.N. official said has been hard to access with humanitarian aid. [Emphasis added.]

“They’ve not seen trucks for a while,” a U.N. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters. “They just basically mounted on the trucks and helped themselves to some of the food parcels.”

The U.N. did not receive any aid from the pier on Sunday or Monday. “We need to make sure that the necessary security and logistical arrangements are in place before we proceed,” said the U.N. official.

In summation, Palestinians in Gaza stole the food parcels before they could be distributed at the intended destination, and nothing’s gotten through since Saturday.
