Russia champions Elon Musk's 'peace' proposal, Ukraine rejects Musk as two-faced

The Kremlin on Wednesday welcomed Telsa CEO Elon Musk's proposal that Ukraine should surrender territory illegally seized by Russia to end the war.
"It's very positive that someone like Elon Musk is looking for a peaceful way out of this situation," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, according to Reuters.
"Compared to many professional diplomats, Musk is still looking for ways to achieve peace. And achieving peace without fulfilling Russia's terms is absolutely impossible," he added.

In a series of polls he published on Twitter Monday, Musk suggested that Ukraine cede Crimea to Russia and that the UN should hold its own referendums in the four Ukrainian regions Russia has attempted to annex.
"It's most likely going to end up looking like this — just a question of how many will die by then," Musk said.
Over 59% of the 2.7 million poll respondents seemed to disagree with Musk's suggestions. Musk then released a separate poll asking whether “the will of the people living in Donbass and Crimea should decide whether they belong to Russia or to Ukraine.”

Kyiv has repeatedly said it will not cede any country to Russian forces engaged in an illegal and brutal war in Ukraine as Russian President Vladimir Putin seeks to assert dominance over his southern neighbor.
The United Nations has also said it is illegal to hold forced referendums in occupied territories - invalidating last week's voting results under international law.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy responded to Musk's proposal by posting his own poll on Twitter, asking: "Which [Elon Musk] do you like more? One who supports Ukraine (or) one who supports Russia.”
Almost 80% of the more than 2.4 million respondents to the poll supported Ukraine.
The Kremlin spokesman reportedly claimed on Tuesday that "bots" "actively participated in voting," although he offered no evidence to support his claim.
