Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky hit back at Elon Musk’s “crazy” Twitter poll about peace proposals between Russia and Ukraine.
The Tesla giant took to Twitter and proposed a series of ideas to resolve the eight-month conflict, asking its followers to vote “yes” or “no” to his proposals, which included officially allowing Russia to annex Crimea.
The mission fell badly with the country’s leader, who took to Twitter with a poll of his own.
Zelensky, who became a social media star during the war, asked his 6.6 million Twitter followers to choose which Elon Musk “liked the most.”
Then he gave them two options, “Who supports Ukraine” or “Who supports Russia”.
The world’s richest man received sharp criticism from Ukrainians after making specific peace proposals to end the war.
Re-elections of the annexed areas under the supervision of the United Nations. “Russia will leave if that is the will of the people,” Mr. Musk wrote.
Crimea is officially part of Russia, as it has been since 1783 (until Khrushchev’s fault).
“The water supply of Crimea is guaranteed. Ukraine remains neutral.”
Then the richest person in the world added: “It is very likely that this will be the outcome in the end – just a question of how many died before then.
“It should also be noted that the possible, though unlikely, outcome of this conflict is nuclear war.”
He later added: “Russia is doing partial mobilization. They go to full mobilization for war if Crimea is in danger. Death on both sides will be devastating. Russia’s population is more than 3 times the population of Ukraine, so it is unlikely that victory for Ukraine will be in an all-out war.” If you care about the people of Ukraine, ask for peace.”
Some Twitter critics have also criticized Mr. Musk’s proposals, including polling in annexed territories.
First, it is crazy to conduct opinion polls in an active and contested war zone, even during a ceasefire. UN observers do not stay forever. What happens to voters who vote the “wrong” way after one side wins? Tweet Dmitriy Grozubinsky, a Ukrainian-born former Australian diplomat.
Another user added: “Elon is planning Russian propaganda, and Ukraine is bringing out heavy weapons.”
Another user tweeted: “There should have been a third option: Elon Musk to shut up about the things he knows nothing about.”
