Elon Musk criticized after tweets about Ukraine: 'Crimea has been Russian since 1783'

Elon Musk criticized after tweets about Ukraine: ‘Crimea has been Russian since 1783’

In a series of posts on Twitter, Tesla CEO Elon Musk was not particularly popular among Ukrainians. In a letter, he shared how he believed a truce of peace could be reached between Russia and Ukraine, after which he immediately drew criticism from senior Ukrainian officials.

“Free elections are held again in the four annexed Ukrainian provinces, Crimea is returned to Russia, the water supply to Crimea is guaranteed, and Ukraine takes a neutral position.” With these proposals, SpaceX founder Elon Musk will reach a truce of peace between Russia and Ukraine. In a Twitter message, he created a poll to see what his followers think. He later wrote: “This is probably the end result of the war.” “It will be a question of how many people are left to die until then.”

This message did not appeal to the Ukrainian government, which immediately broke out against the proposals of the entrepreneur. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky immediately responded with a mocking poll of his followers: “Which Elon Musk is better: who supports Ukraine, who supports Russia?” Andrey Melnik, Ukraine’s ambassador to Germany, was keen on Musk: “The only good result is that Ukrainians don’t buy a Tesla anymore. Die It is my very diplomatic response.

Other senior officials also criticized Musk’s tweets. Especially the part where Musk argues that Crimea has been Russian since 1783 and still is today, he can count on a lot of criticism. Both those who believe that the territories annexed by Russia are now truly Russian and those who believe that Ukraine was already neutral and that Crimea is Ukrainian, strongly disagree.
