SpaceX founder and billionaire Elon Musk challenged Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin to “single combat” on Monday over the future of Ukraine.

Musk made the challenge on Twitter before tagging the official Kremlin account in his tweet. 

“I hereby challenge (Vladimir Putin) to single combat. Stakes are (Ukraine),” tweeted Elon Musk. “Do you agree to this fight?” 

It is unclear whether Musk meant the tweet as a joke but in a reply to comments, he stated that he was “absolutely serious” about the proposal. 

Since Russia invaded Ukraine in February, Musk has come to the country’s aid by offering the besieged nation free Starlink terminals.

Starlink is a satellite internet network operated by SpaceX. Due to the war, Ukrainians have largely had access to the internet cut off as a result of bombings and destruction of critical infrastructure. 

On March 9, Ukrainian vice prime minister and minister of digital transformation Mykhailo Fedorov thanked Musk for his donations. 

“Received the second shipment of Starlink stations! keeps his word! Thank you for supporting Ukraine and peace in the entire world,” wrote Fedorov. 

In response, Musk sated that he also sent them power adapters and solar generators for those who have no access to electricity. 

“You’re welcome. We have also sent power adapters for car cigarette lighters, solar/battery packs and generators for places where electricity is not available,” tweeted Musk. 

Earlier in the day, Musk also joked about those who “support the current thing” posting a photo of the NPC meme holding a Ukrainian flag.
