$2 Million Has Been Raised To Send Putin To Jupiter

A website collecting donations to ‘send Putin to Jupiter’ has already pulled in a whopping $2 million.

The website is calling for $100 million (£76.6 million) to ‘help us build a rocket that will send a bloody dictator far far away’.

It goes on: "100 [million] good citizens of the Earth can send the one Evil to Jupiter.

“Why Jupiter? It is a gas giant and the largest planet in the solar system.”

Fair enough.

So far, the website has raised $2,120,027, (£1,625,435) and that amount is climbing.

However, rather than blasting Putin off into space, the money will actually go to much better use - helping the people of Ukraine.

A note at the top of the page reads: “The collected funds will be used to help Armed forces of Ukraine and rebuild the destroyed infrastructure of Ukraine.”

The page appears to have been created by the Ukrainian government - Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov shared the link with his 250,000 followers on Monday.

Fedorov sent a tweet containing the link to Tesla billionaire Elon Musk in response to him challenging Putin to ‘single combat’, writing: “We can send him to Jupiter, just in case.”

As you can imagine, the post was quickly flooded with responses from social media users, with one asking: “And what has Jupiter done to anyone to deserve this exactly?”

Another person commented: “Support the idea. We could sell the yacht of oligarchs and use the money to build them a rocket.”

Meanwhile, someone else wrote: “Ukraine is awesome! Love their spirit and unwillingness to give up the fight.”

Yesterday, March 14, Musk took to Twitter to challenge Putin to a fight - with the winner taking Ukraine.

Musk directly called out the Russian president in a tweet, typing out Putin’s name using the Russian alphabet.

“I hereby challenge Владимир Путин [Vladimir Putin] to single combat,” he wrote.

Musk added: “Stakes are Україна [Ukraine],” also writing out the country’s name in its own language.
