American billionaire Elon Musk spoke with Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin before presenting his "peace plan" that plays along with Russia. The conversation took place in autumn 2022.

The New Yorker made the statement, citing sources. According to media reports, the SpaceX founder admitted to this in a conversation with the now former Deputy Chief of Staff of the Pentagon, Colin Kahl, and several other people.

It is noteworthy that Musk himself has publicly denied that he had "negotiations" with Putin. He claimed that he had spoken to the Russian president before Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine. If the reports are true, then it appears that the inventor simply lied.

In September last year, at a conference in Aspen attended by business and political representatives, Musk spoke on stage and said: "We have to negotiate. Putin wants peace - we must negotiate peace with Putin". American entrepreneur Reid Hoffman said that it was clear then that the billionaire "bought into what Putin was selling - hook, line and sinker".

A week later, Musk posted a proposal for his own "peace plan" on Twitter. This caused a major scandal, as Musk suggested that Kyiv agree to some of Moscow's conditions. In particular, his "formula" included holding so-called referendums to change Ukraine's borders, granting Russia control over the temporarily occupied Crimea, and so on.

Kahl assures us that the billionaire himself said that he had held a "consultation" with the Kremlin beforehand.

"He said: 'Well, I had a great conversation with Putin'. And we thought: 'Oh, dear, this is not good,'" the former Pentagon official recalls. The information that Musk spoke with the Russian dictator was confirmed to journalists by several other sources.

As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, in June, US Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin approved a deal to buy 400 to 500 new Starlink satellite terminals and services. This will give the Pentagon control over the terminals in Ukraine so that the SpaceX founder cannot shut them down.
