The billionaire Elon Musk shared this Monday on Twitter his ideas on how to end the war in ukrainea proposal to which they did not take long to react with outrage several Ukrainian representativesincluding its president, Volodymyr Zelensky.
Musk presented his followers with a poll on a possible peace agreement between Ukraine and Russia based on four principles:
- Repeat elections in the annexed regions under UN supervision. Russia leaves if that is the will of the people.
- Crimea is formally part of Russia, as it has been since 1783 (until Khrushchev’s mistake).
- Water supply to Crimea secured.
- Ukraine remains neutral.
According to Musk, that will most likely be the end result of the conflict and the question will be how many people die before that happens.
“It is also worth noting that one possible outcome of this conflict, while unlikely, is a nuclear war”, added the businessman, who in interactions with other users defended that, if someone cares about Ukrainians, must seek peacegiven that Ukraine is highly unlikely to win in a “total war”.
Elon Musk’s survey on the war in Ukraine is rejected
After three hours, more than a million people had voted in the pollwith almost two thirds opposed to the ideas of the richest man in the world, who suggested that “bots” or fake accounts are behind those results.
Almost immediately, the Ukrainian ambassador to GermanyAndrij Melnyk, responded to Musk’s tweets with insults and guaranteeing that the “only result” will be that no Ukrainian will buy a Tesla again.
More diplomatic was the foreign ministerDmytro Kuleba, who without directly mentioning the businessman said that “those who propose that Ukraine give up its people and lands – presumably in order not to hurt Putin’s ego or to save Ukraine from suffering – should stop using the word ‘peace’ as a euphemism to ‘allow the Russians murder and rape thousands of innocent Ukrainians more and they keep more territories”.
Zelensky, meanwhile, reacted to the proposals of the CEO of Tesla by posting his own survey on Twitter in which he asks: “Which Elon Musk do you prefer? – The one who supports Ukraine – The one who supports Russia”.
