Peace in Ukraine according to Musk. “Elon, you are drunk. Talk about technology instead”

Tesla CEO and tech visionary Elon Musk has laid out a rather controversial peace plan between Ukraine and Russia. The richest man in the world believes that a few points are enough to lay down arms in Ukraine: he calls for elections in the Ukrainian regions annexed under the supervision of the UN and for Ukrainian neutrality. Musk’s post prompted a series of mostly outraged responses, accusing the billionaire of being drunk or advising him to avoid geopolitical issues. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy also joked about the billionaire’s attitude.

Regarding the recent announcement of Russia’s annexation of the people’s republics of Lugansk and Donetsk and the regions of Kherson and Zaporozhye, the founder of the space company Space X said that the elections to annex the territories to Russia should be held under the supervision of the United Nations. “Russia will leave if it’s the will of the people,” Musk noted on Twitter.

He also believes that the water supply of the Crimean peninsula must be ensured. “Crimea has officially been part of Russia since 1783,” Musk noted, adding that it lasted until “Khrushchev’s mistake.” The multi-billionaire concluded his message by demanding that Ukraine remain neutral.

“A possible but unlikely outcome of this conflict could be a nuclear war,” Musk said, adding that a nuclear conflict is unlikely to occur. “It’s just a question of how many people die before that,” said the Tesla boss.

For example, entrepreneur, head of Seznam and the fourteenth richest Czech Ivo Lukačovič weighed in on Musk’s contribution. “Tech billionaires SHOULD NOT suggest that heroic, sovereign Ukraine cede territory to a terrorist state,” Lukashovich, the world’s richest man, slammed, saying tech visionaries should “earn and spend money, doing charity and talking about technology”.

“Elon, you’re drunk man, you better go home,” Illia Ponomarenko, war reporter for The Kyiv Independent, sarcastically remarked. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi has also spoken out against the controversial businessman. The Ukrainian leader posted a poll on Twitter under the slogan “Which Elon do you like: ‘The one who supports Ukraine’ or ‘The one who supports Russia’.

“In this case, Russia should also recover Alaska”, criticized Anton Gerashchenko, adviser to the Ukrainian Ministry of the Interior, in the statement of the American businessman. The adviser believes that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin “likes to collect Russian land”. “So the United States should probably comply and return Alaska to him before Russia declares war on them,” Gerashchenko comments. “For some, it is very easy to control the life and country of Ukrainians,” concludes the adviser.

Elon Musk’s tweet comes moments after the Russian Constitutional Court approved a document on the annexation of four Ukrainian territories occupied by the Russian military. On Monday, deputies must approve the annexation of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, the Kommersant newspaper announced on its website. It is about 15% of the total area of ​​Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin, on whose orders Russian troops invaded Ukraine in late February, signed agreements on Friday on the annexation to the Russian Federation of four Ukrainian regions occupied by Moscow. The Kremlin chief said Russia would defend the annexed territories “with all available means”.

Additionally, on the same day Musk posted his tweet, automaker Tesla announced a record quarter. The electric car manufacturer delivered a record 343,830 vehicles to its customers. Compared to the second quarter, sales increased by 35%. It follows from Data, which the company posted on its website. However, third-quarter deliveries were lower than analysts’ expectations, which averaged more than 359,000 vehicles, according to a Refinitiv survey. Shares of the automaker are depreciating more than eight percent.
