Elon Musk twitter Ukraine, zelensky tweet russia crimea poll reddit

 

After making Ukraine angry, Elon strikes back.

Elon Musk, a tech billionaire, has said something even more controversial about peace in Ukraine and made a scary prediction about nuclear war.

Elon Musk, a tech billionaire, said more controversial things about the Russian invasion of Ukraine after he got a lot of backlash online overnight.

It all started with a tweet from the founder and CEO of Tesla. In it, he said that peace between Russia and Ukraine could be found by redoing "elections of annexed regions under UN supervision," with Russia leaving "if that is the will of the people."

He said that Crimea had been a part of Russia "since 1783 (until Khrushchev's mistake)" and asked that "Crimea's water supply" be guaranteed.

In Musk's plan, Ukraine was also supposed to stay "neutral."

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has said again that he stands by a controversial tweet he sent about peace between Russia and Ukraine.

At the end of the tweet, the Twittersphere was given the chance to have the last word by voting yes or no.

Only 38.5% of the more than 2 million people who replied agreed with Musk.

"This is very likely to happen in the end. The only question is how many people will die before then," Musk replied to his own tweet.

Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, was one of many people who didn't agree. He tweeted, "Which Elon Musk do you like more?"

The first choice on his Twitter poll was "Someone who backs Ukraine."

"Someone who backs Russia," said the second poll answer.

President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine seemed to be upset by Musk's tweet.

Musk didn't want to let the Ukrainian leader's online insult go unanswered, so he replied.

"I still care a lot about Ukraine, but I'm sure that a huge increase in the war will hurt Ukraine and maybe the whole world," he said.

Garry Kasparov, a well-known human rights activist and the world's best chess player, called the billionaire's idea "moral idiocy" in a rude way.

"This is morally stupid, a repeat of Kremlin propaganda, a betrayal of Ukrainian bravery and sacrifice, and it puts a few minutes spent reading about Crimea on Wikipedia ahead of Putin's bloody war," he said.

Soon after fighting broke out in Ukraine, Mykhailo Fedorov, who is in charge of digital transformation in Ukraine, asked Elon Musk to turn on Starlink.

Musk replied.

"We gave Starlink to the Ukraine, which cost us $80 million and put SpaceX and me at great risk of a cyberattack from Russia," he said.

"What else have you done but tweet?"

Musk's company, SpaceX, runs a satellite internet network called Starlink. It was turned on in Ukraine less than 12 hours after Mykhailo Fedorov, Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation, asked Musk directly through a tweet.

Musk made these suggestions after shocking video showed a Russian train full of vehicles and equipment heading toward the front line in Ukraine.

Konrad Muzyka, a defense analyst, told The Sun that the train was connected to a unit that ran a dozen central storage sites for nuclear weapons.

He said, "This is actually carrying gear from the 12th Main Directorate of the Russian Mod."

"The directorate is in charge of nuclear weapons and how they are stored, maintained, moved, and given to units."

The expert stressed that the video did not show "preparations for a nuclear release."

He did say that it was important that it came out after Ukraine said there was a "very high" chance that Russia would use a tactical nuclear weapon.

Musk said again that he thinks a nuclear war is possible if there isn't peace between the two countries.

"It's also important to note that nuclear war is a possible, though unlikely, outcome of this conflict," he said.
