Elon Musk has been showing his support for Ukraine in the wake of Vladimir Putin’s unprovoked military invasion. Musk sent several Starlink internet receivers and has met with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy to see what else can be done to help. The billionaire head of SpaceX and Tesla is often controversial, but he has been on the right side of history thus far about the Russian invasion.
Musk has offered material and verbal support to Ukraine. Elon has also helped to raise awareness simply by speaking about the conflict. Now, Musk has stepped up with a physical challenge to the Russian leader.
Elon Musk took to Twitter early on Monday morning to offer a fight with Putin with some pretty high stakes. Ukraine would be on the line. The fight obviously will not happen, but Musk made sure the Kremlin received the message anyway with his follow-up tweet. The translation is courtesy of Google.
“I hereby challenge Vladimir Putin to single combat
Stakes are Ukraine
Do you agree to this fight? @KremlinRussia_E”
The chances of Putin accepting the fight are slim to none. At best, Elon Musk’s challenge will serve as another public humiliation of the Russian dictator. Every little bit helps.
