Ukrainian soldiers blocked at Azovstal ask Elon Musk for help

Ukrainian defenders, blocked by Russian aggressors at Azovstal steelworks in Mariupol, ask SpaceX founder Elon Musk for help.

Serhiy Volyna, commander of the 36th Marine Brigade of Ukraine, posted a relevant publication on Facebook.

He emphasized that he had created a Twitter account only to contact Elon Musk.

β€œ@elonmusk people say you come from another planet to teach people to believe in the impossible. Our planets are next to each other, as I live where it is nearly impossible to survive. Help us get out of Azovstal to a mediating country. If not you, then who? Give me a hint,” Volyn tweeted.

He also asks everyone to help make Musk see his appeal: β€œIt is said that his task was to inspire humanity, to make people believe in the impossible. He has proved that there are no unsolvable problems for him, that anything is possible! He never gives up just like us! We need the support from a superhuman!”
