Bizarre billionaire Elon Musk, known for his frequent punches and misadventures, suggested to Russian President Vladimir Putin this Monday via a tweet, “Man to man fight.” The stake in this particular duel: Ukraine.
In his letter, written in Russian, Elon Musk said: “Here I am challenging Vladimir Putin in a man-to-man fight. The stake is Ukraine.”
If he does not specify what form of duel he is proposing to the Kremlin master, the founder of the SpaceX space company insisted in a second tweet, asking the Kremlin’s official account “Do you accept this fight?”
I’m here to challenge
for one fight
The bets are Україна

Then Elon Musk made it clear that he’s totally serious. His provocation of the duel also made the former Russian Vice President, Dmitry Rogozin, react, who responded by quoting a passage from the “Story of the Pope and his treatment of a balda” by the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.
“You little devil, you’re still young, you’re too weak to measure yourself against me; it would just be a waste of time. You first have to run away from my brother,” may we read.
Not a courtesy letter to the Tesla boss, to which the latter also responded with humor by sharing the same thing.
I see you are a tough negotiator!

In the latter we see him appear on the right, flamethrower in hand facing Vladimir Putin riding a brown bear, and the inscription “Choose Your Fighter” appears above the two men.
Elon Musk supports the Ukrainians and the Russians
Since the start of the Russian army’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24, Elon Musk has supported the Ukrainians, as well as “the great people of Russia who do not want war.”
At the beginning of March, through his company SpaceX, the billionaire also responded to a request for help from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky by activating the Starlink service in Ukraine.
This group of satellites allows access to the Internet via satellite, if the country’s sea and terrestrial cables were cut as a result of the war. Then Elon Musk announced that other stations would be sent to Ukraine. A warm welcome was given by Volodymyr Zelensky himself.
