Imagine having the gall to state that because of Russian mobilization, Ukraine must "remain neutral," and in later tweets said "victory for Ukraine is unlikely." As if being "neutral" is ever an option when your own country is invaded. Just offensive stupidity. President Zelenskyy mocked his comments, tweeting:

Which @elonmusk do you like more?

  • One who supports Ukraine
  • One who supports Russia

Billionaire businessman Elon Musk has been strongly criticised after posting a series of Tweets about Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba are among the most prominent politicians who responded to the online comments.

On Monday evening Musk tweeted about the conflict to his 107.7 million followers, telling them first that to achieve peace between Ukraine and Russia there should be a "redo" of elections "under UN supervision" in four areas of eastern Ukraine illegally annexed by Russia.

Musk said "Russia leaves" those areas "if that is the will of the people."

He also said that Crimea, illegally annexed by Russia in 2014, should become "formally part of Russia, as it has been since 1783 (until Krushchev's mistake), referencing the 1954 decree issued by then-Soviet premier Nikita Krushchev to transfer responsibility for Crimea to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.

The line about Crimea being part of Ukraine was "Krushchev's mistake" has long been a Kremlin talking point.

Tesla boss Elon Musk also said that Ukraine must "remain neutral," and in later tweets said "victory for Ukraine is unlikely."

Musk followed that up with a series of tweets, each more offensive than the last. I won't bother putting them all in here.

President Zelenskyy's pithy response:

Ukraine's ambassador to Germany was less diplomatic.

The President of Lithuania was not amused either.

Former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov and Musk got into a Twitter spat, sparring back and forth.

Roman Sheremeta put it this way. Tesla stock tanked 9% yesterday alone, perhaps in part due to Musk's idiotic statements.
