Elon Musk disputes that he discussed the Ukraine War with Putin.
Elon Musk has refuted claims that he communicated with Vladimir Putin before putting his recommendations for stopping Russia's invasion of Ukraine in a Twitter poll.

Head of the political risk consultancy Eurasia Group Ian Bremmer claimed that Mr. Musk had personally briefed him about the chat with Mr. Putin.

However, Mr. Musk has since denied this.

Mr Musk twitted.. 

I have spoken to Putin only once and that was about 18 months ago. The subject matter was space. 

 The Tesla CEO invited his 107.7 million followers to vote on how to end the conflict in Ukraine last week.

One of the ideas was to organize elections in regions of Ukraine that Russia claims it has seized and has occupied. His remarks were well received in Moscow.

If the people's will is to have Russia go, the multibillionaire said.

Four Ukrainian regions have already been annexed by Russia, according to President Putin, after phony referendums that Kyiv and its Western partners deemed fake. All four of these regions are not entirely under Russian authority.

The illegally annexed Crimea by Moscow in 2014, according to Mr. Musk, should be "officially" recognized as a part of Russia.

According to Mr. Bremmer's account in a newsletter, Mr. Musk told him that the Russian president was "prepared to negotiate," but only if Ukraine agreed to some form of permanent neutrality, Crimea remained under Russian control, and Kyiv acknowledged Russia's annexation of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia.

Mr. Bremmer claimed that the CEO of SpaceX had informed him that Mr. Putin had stated that these objectives would be achieved "no matter what" and that a nuclear attack may be launched if Ukraine attacked Crimea.

However, Mr. Musk has since refuted the claims.

The initial survey from Mr. Musk sparked a lot of debate.

Dmytro Kuleba, the minister of foreign affairs for Ukraine, stated that those who advocate for the country's abandonment of its people and territory "must cease using the word 'peace' as a euphemism to 'let Russians murder and rape thousands more innocent Ukrainians, and steal more land'".

Garry Kasparov, a world-renowned chess player from Russia, referred to Elon Musk's post as "moral foolishness, repetition of Kremlin propaganda, and a betrayal of Ukrainian courage and sacrifice."

The recommendations made by Mr. Musk were welcomed by the Kremlin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, who said: "It is extremely encouraging that someone like Elon Musk is looking for a peaceful way out of this crisis."

The businessman quickly rose to prominence in Ukraine early in the conflict after delivering several of his Starlink internet terminals there. Subsequently, Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, extended an invitation to him to come.

That relationship, however, has soured as a result of his recent statements, with Mr. Zelensky this week criticizing his Twitter polls.
