A man-to-man fight: Elon Musk challenges Vladimir Putin to a duel to settle the Ukraine crisis

What if instead of involving millions of civilians in a deadly war, a man-to-man duel could settle everything? This is the surprising proposal made by Elon Musk to Vladimir Putin on Twitter.

Known for his eccentricity, Elon Musk has also taken a firm position in favor of Ukraine in the conflict which currently opposes it to Russia. The billionaire, for example, activated the Starlink satellite internet service to provide a connection to Ukrainian areas in difficulty after a call from a politician.

“The stake is Ukraine”

This Monday, March 14, the creator of Tesla surprised by making a tweet in Russian on his Twitter account, in a very solemn tone. “I hereby challenge Vladimir Putin to a man-to-man fight. The stake is Ukraine.”

And under this tweet, a second, this time mentioning the official account of the Kremlin. “Do you accept this fight?”. While neither the Kremlin nor the Russian president have so far reacted to Elon Musk’s invitation, the latter confirms to a surfer: “I am very serious”.

“Choose Your Fighter”

On his account, we now discover an improbable pinned tweet showing a montage of a photo of Putin on a bear, facing a photo of Elon Musk with a flamethrower, all accompanied by the caption “choose your fighter “.

This montage is a response to Dmitry Rogozin, former vice-president of the Russian government, who himself responded to Elon Musk’s call to fight, in these terms: “You, little devil, you are still young. You are too weak to measure you against me; It would only be a waste of time.”
