Zelensky should avoid needlessly sending young Ukrainians to be slaughtered on the battlefield with Russia, Musk said.
In an interview with US podcaster Lex Fridman, he was asked whether he believed Zelensky should negotiate peace with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Musk did not provide a straight answer, but noted he would ‘just recommend [that Zelensky] do not send the flower of Ukrainian youth to die in trenches’, regardless of whether he engages with Putin or not.
‘Whoever goes on the offensive will lose massive numbers of people and history will not look kindly upon them’, he added.
The Tesla CEO has weighed in on the hostilities between Moscow and Kiev on numerous occasions, noting in September that the Ukrainian counteroffensive that began in early summer had brought ‘so much death for so little [gain]’.
