Elon Musk made a proposal on Twitter to stop the war in Ukraine. He also published a poll in which he asks his followers if they agree with him. Ukraine-Russia Peace: - Redo elections of annexed regions under UN supervision.
Russia leaves if that is will of the people. - Crimea formally part of Russia, as it has been since 1783 (until Khrushchev’s mistake). - Water supply to Crimea assured. - Ukraine remains neutral.
Zelenski's adviser answered him
He was answered by Mihajlo Podoljak, adviser to Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Zelensky.
there is a better peace plan. 1. [🇺🇦] liberates its territories. Including the annexed Crimea. 2. [🇷🇺] undergoes demilitarization and mandatory denuclearization so it can no longer threaten others. 3. War criminals go through international tribunal.
Let’s vote? Musk’s suggestion is a major break from the White House and Ukrainian government’s thoughts on what Ukraine should be willing to concede, with President Joe Biden saying Friday the U.S. will “always honor Ukraine’s internationally recognized borders” and Zelensky insisting the country has no plans to relinquish any territory to Russia.
Musk’s friendly peace terms are a far cry from his early inclinations when war broke out in Ukraine in February, offering to take on Putin in single combat and receiving gratitude from Ukrainian leadership after sending Starlink internet terminals from his company SpaceX to the country.
Musk has a long history of stirring the pot with Twitter polls, selling billions worth of Tesla shares last November after asking on Twitter if he should do so. Musk’s controversial foreign policy proposal came as Tesla shares cratered 9% in Monday trading, hitting a three-month low as the market reacted poorly to third quarter vehicle deliveries falling short of estimates.
