For the priceless contributions of CEO Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk in support of Ukraine, the government of the country and artists want to thank him. They created a non-fungible token (NFT), a portrait of Musk, in order to keep the memory of his help to the Ukrainian people forever, and want to forward it to his Ethereum address.
Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mikhail Fedorov shared a non-fungible token with the image of Elon Musk. In addition to the portrait of the engineer, there is a tweet in the NFT with Musk saying that Starlink service is now available in Ukraine. Fedorov wrote that some things, such as the sincere help that the head of the most disruptive companies in the world gave to Ukraine, are beyond money. He also asked for Musk's Ethereum address to transfer the gift and thanked him for helping the war-torn country.
258 ETH raised by @Meta_History_UA w/NFTs.

From the heart of 🇺🇦 to sunny Texas, thank you Elon! Drop me your ETH address. pic.twitter.com/HXuj0MfXNE— Mykhailo Fedorov (@FedorovMykhailo) April 29, 2022
Musk's help to Ukraine really has a huge scale and it is not about how much money was spent on it, but that he sincerely helps and supports Ukrainians. Immediately after the Russian attack, Musk sent Starlink terminals to Ukraine, which actually helped the military survive and defend the country. The aggressor country has carried out many cyberattacks on Ukraine, effectively blocking the ability of the military and the government to coordinate their actions. In a matter of days, the military received excellent Starlink satellite Internet, which to this day plays one of the key roles in the Ukrainian military confronting its aggressor.
SpaceX gave Ukraine access to Starlink satellite internet, supplying thousands of kits—many of which included solar panels and Powerwalls—to have internet access anytime, anywhere, even without access to the electrical grid. In addition, Tesla opened free access to Superchargers for Tesla cars in the countries neighboring Ukraine. In addition to officially purchased cars, even those that are on the black list of the company have gained access. This move was made so that Ukrainians, who often buy Tesla cars that have been in an accident, can safely get out of Ukraine to a safer place.
Recently, Tesla sent solar panels and Powerwalls to Ukraine, which will be installed in two ambulant clinics in Irpin and Borodyanka, which serve the local population affected during the occupation. The system will provide hospital facilities with renewable energy and store the surplus in Powerwall to provide power during outages.
Obviously, Tesla and SpaceX, led by Elon Musk, have changed many of their own rules and become as flexible as possible in order to provide Ukrainians with vital technologies. Starlink helps the Ukrainian military daily to resist Russian terrorists who are killing civilians, as well as gives Internet access to ordinary people who have not been able to contact their loved ones for weeks. Without a doubt, Musk’s companies have made and continue to make one of the largest contributions to helping Ukraine among all global companies.
