Elon Musk - Zelenskyy indulge in Twitter squabble over Russia-Ukraine peace plan

Elon Musk faced severe backlash from Ukrainians including President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Musk, the world’s richest person, posted a Twitter poll asking citizens of occupied areas of eastern Ukraine recently annexed by the Kremlin and Crimea to decide if they want to live in Russia or Ukraine. To Musk's poll and peace plan, Ukraine's President Zelensky responded by posting a poll to Twitter asking if people preferred Elon Musk who supports Ukraine or Russia. Musk proposed UN-supervised elections in four occupied regions that Moscow last week moved to annex after what it called referendums. The votes were denounced by Kyiv and Western governments as illegal and coercive. Musk followed up his first tweet with another poll: "Let's try this then: the will of the people who live in the Donbas & Crimea should decide whether they're part of Russia or Ukraine." He said he didn't care if his proposal was unpopular, arguing that he did care "that millions of people may die needlessly for an essentially identical outcome." It's not the only Twitter war Musk has got into over the issue, but he's clearly not afraid of a fight and is standing his ground in the virtual world.
