The CEO of SpaceX, Tesla and Twitter owner Elon Musk warned the United States about the consequences of helping Ukraine strike in Crimea. He commented on Twitter on an article published by The New York Times.

Elon Musk responded to a post by South American entrepreneur David Sachs, co-founder of Craft Ventures, who called US attempts to attack Russian targets in Crimea “insanely risky.” The owner of Twitter shared his opinion, running into criticism on the social network

“I'm super pro-Ukrainian, but a ruthless escalation is very risky for Ukraine and the world,” he wrote.

Ukrainian diplomat Oleksandr Shcherba, former Ukrainian ambassador to Austria, criticized Elon Musk's statement. “Ukraine is liberating Ukrainian lands? Oh no! How dare they prepare for this.” The New York Times journalist Paul von Silbauer joined the criticism, recalling that Russia seized part of Ukraine by force.

It is worth noting that Elon Musk has repeatedly opposed the escalation of the war in Ukraine. In October, he proposed holding referendums in Russian-occupied territories to end the confrontation. The billionaire also repeated the position of Russian President Vladimir Putin that Crimea was “gifted” to Ukraine by the USSR Secretary General Nikita Khrushchev.

On January 18, The New York Times journalists wrote that the United States was ready to help Ukraine strike at the occupied Crimea. According to sources, the administration of US President Joe Biden is ready to take such measures, despite the risk of an escalation of the conflict. The US authorities are no longer sure that Russia will decide to use nuclear weapons in the event of such strikes, at the same time, military support should strengthen Ukraine's position in the negotiations.
