Tesla CEO Elon Musk has gotten into a Twitter tussle with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy after the tech billionaire floated a divisive proposal to end Russia’s invasion. Musk’s tweet Monday crossed several red lines for Ukraine. He argued that Russia should be allowed to keep Ukraine’s Crimea Peninsula that it seized in 2014, that Ukraine should adopt a neutral status and that the United Nations should oversee new referendums for four Ukrainian regions that Russia is illegally annexing. Those positions are anathema for Zelenskyy, who considers them pro-Kremlin. He posted a Twitter poll asking “which Elon Musk do you like more?” “One who supports Ukraine” or “One who supports Russia.”
