Recently, the CEO of Spacex and Tesla, Elon Musk, made an offer to Russian President Vladimir Putin. It seems the Kremlin is considering the invitation.

The Kremlin considers the offer made by Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX and Tesla, to talk to Putin on the Clubhouse social network interesting, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday. However, this offer should be considered in detail first, he added, reported Russian state news agency TASS.

“We want to make sense of it first. Putin himself does not use social networks, he doesn’t have any personal accounts,” the spokesman told reporters.

Peskov noted that Musk’s proposal is “without a doubt, very interesting.”

“But we need to understand somehow what he means, what the offer is about, we need to verify this first, and then we will respond,” the spokesman said.

Earlier, Musk mentioned the Kremlin’s official account on Twitter, inviting President Vladimir Putin to have a conversation on the Clubhouse social network.

Musk famously made fun of the head of the Russian space agency, Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, after SpaceX successfully launched humans into space last year.

During a post-launch news conference on May 30, SpaceX founder Elon Musk cheekily said, “The trampoline is working.” This was a dig at the head of the Russian Space Corporation, Dmitry Rogozin, a former Russian defense official who was sanctioned in 2014 as part of the US response to Russia’s aggression in Ukraine. At the time, when the US relied on the Russian Soyuz vehicle to get into space, Rogozin suggested on Twitter that NASA could use a trampoline to get into space if it didn’t like working with Russia, reported ArtsTechnica in June of 2020.
