On Saturday, the Tesla CEO asked if the Russian president would like to chat on a voice-only app.
“Would you like to join me for a chat at the Clubhouse?” Musk asked on Twitter on Saturday. Then he tweeted in Russian: “It would be a great honor to speak with you.”
The Kremlin called Musk’s invitation “interesting,” but added that more details were needed.
“We want to figure it out first. You know that President Putin does not directly use social networks. He personally does not lead them. On the whole, this is undoubtedly a very interesting proposal, “Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
Putin is not the only public figure to whom Musk approached with an offer to talk. The Tesla executive recently tweeted that he and billionaire rapper Kanye West are set to appear on the platform. When this will happen is still unknown.
Musk debuted last month on a trendy invite-only social networking app. The speech covered everything: from memes to cryptography and even an unexpected discussion with Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev and his role in the situation around GameStop stock trading.
