Tesla and SpaceX CEO and founder Elon Musk has weighed in on how to resolve the conflict erupting between Russia and Ukraine.
Musk fired off a series of tweets on Monday that proposed a series of conditions that he believes will lead to peace being established between the two battling nations. However, his points of view have sparked major online debate leading to "#Elon" trending on Twitter and responses from multiple high-level Ukrainian officials.
Musk called for a "redo" of elections in regions annexed by Russia under the supervision of the United Nations, recognizing that Crimea is part of Russia, the water supply of Crimea given to Russia, and Ukraine pledging it remains neutral. Musk followed up with a couple of Twitter polls that asked his 100+ million followers if a peace deal should be brokered between Russia and Ukraine, as well as a separate poll that called for the people living in the Donbas and Crimea regions to vote if "they're part of Russia or Ukraine".
