Tech oligarch and SpaceX owner Elon Musk said that he still supports Ukraine, but is afraid of “escalation” in Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine, in a tweet on Oct. 3. He made this statement following criticism of his proposal of a supposed “peace plan” for Ukraine.

In response to a Twitter poll by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s, which asked users to vote for which Elon Musk they wanted, Musk wrote: "I still very much support Ukraine, but am convinced that massive escalation of the war will cause great harm to Ukraine and possibly the world."

Earlier, on Twitter, Musk invited users to vote for his version of ending Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine, which included referendums in the occupied territories, the transfer of Crimea to Russia with a guarantee for its water supply, and Ukraine’s commitment to a "neutral" status.
