SpaceX founder Elon Musk has challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin to “single combat” for Ukraine.
“I hereby challenge Владимир Путин to single combat,” Musk tweeted, using Putin’s Russian name.
“Stakes are Україна,” he added, using the Ukrainian spelling for Ukraine.
In a follow up tweet, Musk tagged the Kremlin’s official account and asked, “Do you agree to this fight?”
Dmitry Rogozin, the head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, responded.
“You, little devil, are still young,” Rogozin wrote. “Compete with me weakling; It would only be a waste of time. Overtake my brother first.”
