Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, appears to have challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin to a one-on-one combat. Musk challenged Putin to a fight on Twitter, with Ukraine as the stakes.
“I hereby challenge Vladimir Putin to single fight,” he tweeted, spelling Vladimir Putin in Russian alphabets.
“The stakes are Ukraine,” Elon Musk said, implying that the winner of the duel will determine the outcome of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
Because Putin does not have a personal Twitter account, Musk has sought confirmation from the President of Russia’s official account, @KremlinRussia E. Do you accept to participate in this fight? Musk enquired.
Earlier, during the blazing battle, Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, provided Ukraine with internet connectivity via his company’s Starlink satellites.
On February 24, Russia invaded Ukraine after President Vladimir Putin authorised a “special military operation” to “demilitarise and denazify” Ukraine. Since the invasion, the UN has registered at least 596 civilian deaths, however it believes the exact toll is significantly higher. More than 2.8 million people have fled their homes, with millions more pouring into Poland and neighbouring nations.
Meanwhile, delegations from Ukraine and Russia gathered today for a new round of talks aimed at resolving the ongoing crisis. Delegation-level talks and meetings between the foreign ministers of both countries have yielded no positive results so far.
