Did Elon Musk talk to Vladimir Putin about the Ukraine war?

Political analyst Ian Bremmer wrote that Elon Musk had spoken to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Following this, he tweeted seeking support for his views about the best outcome of Russia’s war on Ukraine.

However, Elon Musk denied all reports in a tweet.

Musk acknowledges that he spoke to Putin only once and that was about 18 months ago on the subject matter of "space".

Musk became popular in Ukraine by dispatching his Starlink internet terminals to keep the country’s military connected after Russia’s invasion.

Times have changed as Musk recently proposed UN-supervised votes in Ukraine on whether certain regions should join Russia.

He also said Ukraine should hand over Crimea to Russia and remain neutral rather than aligning with either NATO or Russia.

Musk has promoted the idea on Twitter that some Ukraine citizens should vote to join Russia.

While Kremlin officials praised Musk for his opinion, he faced criticism from Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and many others.

Elon Musk is the richest man in the world and has a net worth of $220 billion.
