A screenshot of Musk’s profile on the kill list is currently doing the rounds. Elon Musk was alarmed after his name appeared on the Ukrainian kill list.
Elon Musk has openly voiced concern that his name and profile seem to have been incorporated to a well-known Ukrainian ‘kill list,’ following scandal and uproar from Kiev over his previous “Russia-Ukraine peace poll” and resulting threats to cut funding for the country’s Starlink satellite internet services.
When independent journalist Eva Bartlett’s tweet that “Musk added to Ukraine’s Myrotvorets kill list (which includes 327 children!),” went viral on Friday, the billionaire SpaceX founder immediately replied, “is this list real?”
Musk subsequently seemed to answer his own query in the affirmative, posting a link to the Wikipedia page on the ‘kill list’ website. The website recently gained attention as Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters underlined his own placement on the list.
“Concerning,” Musk later wrote.

Furthermore, in an effort to uncover and authenticate the Ukrainian website, Newsweek stated that it is maintained independently, but left open the question of whether it had direct connections to the Ukrainian government:
According to Rolling Stone, “There is a list maintained by a far-right Ukrainian organization that contains hundreds of thousands of enemies of Ukraine, from alleged members of the Wagner private military company to journalists accused of cooperating with puppet governments in the Donbas region. The site, which has been roundly internationally condemned — but not taken down by the Ukrainian government itself — claims not to be a kill list but rather “information for law enforcement authorities and special services.”
According to Newsweek, some Ukrainians who had their names and addresses published as “collaborators” were tracked down and arrested, and some were found dead.
Additionally, according to Mirotvorets’ Wikipedia page, the website does keep a list of “enemies of Ukraine” and has even drawn criticism from Kiev’s Western allies, who believe it to be a bit of an embarrassment.
“The site has remained open despite repeated requests from the UN, G7 ambassadors, the EU and human rights groups to close it down, and although it has no official status, it acts to supplement government databases at checkpoints,” the Wikipedia page which Musk refers to cites.
Eva Bartlett, the reporter and pundit with whom Musk engaged on Twitter, is said to be on the hit list.
Musk’s name may have only fleetingly been on the website; it is said to have been promptly removed after it attracted attention on social media. Nevertheless, a screenshot of Musk’s profile on the kill list is currently doing the rounds.
