Tesla CEO Elon Musk has challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin to a single duel. Elon Musk offer was submitted directly to the Kremlin's Twitter account on Monday, March 14, 2022, as a form of sympathy for the struggle of the Ukrainian people.
“I hereby challenge Vladimir Putin to single combat. The stakes are Ukraine,” Musk said in a tweet on Tuesday, March 15, 2022.

Stakes are Україна

Musk, who posted his tweet in Russian, tagged the Kremlin's English account. “Are you okay with this fight?” he asked.
One Twitter user thinks Putin will easily win any fight, including with Musk. The Tesla boss responded casually.
“If Putin can easily humiliate the west, then he will accept the challenge. But he didn't want to,” Musk said.
Musk is quite active in responding to the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia, either on his personal Twitter feed or through his company.
Through his company, the Tesla CEO provided Starlink space internet equipment to Ukraine.
