The Tesla and SpaceX chief took to Twitter on Monday, where his messages are notoriously erratic, to challenge Putin to a “single combat” fight, with the winner getting Ukraine.
“I hereby challenge Владимир Путин to single combat Stakes are Україна,” he wrote.
I hereby challenge
to single combat
Stakes are Україна

When one of Musk’s followers replied saying that he might not have thought his challenge through, Musk reiterated that he was “absolutely serious.”
“If Putin could so easily humiliate the west, then he would accept the challenge. But he will not,” he added.
“You, little devil, are but young and frail. Do you compete with me? you will only fail; It is time and work wasted for you; Beat my brother, and you will see!,” Rogozin quoted, in Russian.
