Twitter tug of war between Zelenskyy, Elon Musk, and Zelenskyy about a suggestion for a 'peace program'

Any significant innovation is subject to failure.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zilenskyy instantly rejected Elon Musk's Monday proposal to end Russia’s war in Ukraine. Zelenskyy responded with his survey. 

Elon Musk, who is the world's richest man, suggested UN-supervised elections to four occupied territories Moscow attempted to annexe following what it called "referendums".

Tesla Inc. CEO asked that Crimea, which Moscow annexed back in 2014 be officially recognized as part Russia, that Crimea have water supplies be assured, and that Ukraine preserve its neutrality.

The Ukrainian president responded to his survey by asking which Elon Musk fan he liked more: the one who supported Russia, or the one supporting Ukraine.


After the war with Russia ended, Elon Musk gained popularity in Ukraine. Zelensky, President of Ukraine, also invited him.

Musk's strategy has been to take risks, leap, experiment, learn from mistakes and fix it. This has been demonstrated with rocket launches as well as the rollout Tesla’s self-driving system.

Musk stated that he was purchasing Twitter in April. However, he then tried unsuccessfully to rescind his statement and launched a legal dispute with the social network.
