Washington (US): Amid Russia’s ongoing military operations in Ukraine, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Monday challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin for single combat, with the fate of Ukraine at stake.
“I hereby challenge Vladimir Putin to single combat,” Musk tweeted and added that Ukraine is at stake.
In a subsequent tweet, Musk asked the Russian president if he “agrees to this fight.”
Tagging the official Twitter handle of President of Russia, Musk wrote in Cyrillic, “Do you agree to this fight?”
Russian forces launched military operations in Ukraine on February 24, three days after Moscow recognized Ukraine’s breakaway regions, Donetsk and Luhansk as independent republics followed by the announcement of a “special military operation” to “demilitarize” and “denazify” Ukraine.
