Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk released a poll on Twitter Monday, asking his followers how they felt about his outline for what a peace deal between Ukraine and Russia might look like.
“Ukraine-Russia Peace,” Musk wrote, along with the following bullet points.
- Redo elections of annexed regions under UN supervision. Russia leaves if that is will of the people
- Crimea formally part of Russia, as it has been since 1783 (until Khrushchev’s mistake).
- Water supply to Crimea assured.
- Ukraine remains neutral.
Essentially, Musk doesn’t buy the credibility of the referendum held in the Donbas region last week and wants the UN to hold another election so citizens of the region can finally decide if they want to become a part of Russia, remain independent, or become a part of Ukraine.
He also proposed Ukraine recognize Crimea as a Russian territory and for the Ukrainian government to restore the flow of water to Crimea since they shut it down after the 2014 Russian annexation of the region.
Lastly, Musk suggested Ukraine remain “neutral” and not join NATO.
The results of the poll as of Monday afternoon were about 60% “No,” and 40% “Yes.”
The billionaire CEO also wrote, “This is highly likely to be the outcome in the end – just a question of how many die before then,” adding, “Also worth noting that a possible, albeit unlikely, outcome from this conflict is nuclear war.”
The global establishment and pro-Ukrainian Twitter users were furious at Musk’s hypothetical negotiations.
Keep in mind, SpaceX’s satellite internet service Starlink has been used by the Ukrainian military throughout the war as Musk has been sympathetic to their fight with Russia.
Ukrainian diplomat Andrij Melnyk responded by telling Musk to “fuck off” and claiming no Ukrainian will ever buy a Tesla.
Ukrainian news outlet The Kyiv Post responded, “Elon, you’re a cool guy and thanks for the Starlink but it’d be so very wonderful if you were to carry out votes on things that you know about. We don’t carry out votes on apartheid and Nelson Mandela.”
A U.S. congressional advisor named Paul Massaro answered Musk’s poll by suggesting the only solution to the conflict will be if “Russia leaves Ukraine immediately, pays reparations, decolonizes, demilitarizes, and denuclearizes.”
After being hit with a barrage of “bot attacks” Musk tried a new, more simple poll, asking if “the will of the people who live in the Donbas & Crimea should decide whether they’re part of Russia or Ukraine?”
As of Monday afternoon, 60% of those polled answered, “Yes,” with 40% responding, “No.”
Once again, the establishment mob is turning against someone for daring to stray ever so slightly from its groupthink narratives.
