By The New York Times. Elon Musk, Tesla’s chief executive, waded into geopolitical waters on Monday with his own proposal for a peace deal to end Russia’s war in Ukraine, prompting a swift and dismissive response from President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine. . .
And while world leaders have largely refrained from voicing opinions on how Ukraine should fight the war, Mr. Musk, whose musings tend to garner widespread attention on social media, showed no timidity in weighing in. . .
Mr. Zelensky wasted little time responding with a Twitter survey of his own, mocking Mr. Musk’s. “Which @elonmusk do you like more?” he wrote, accompanied with a poll with two response options: “One who supports Ukraine” and “one who supports Russia.” At this writing, the poll had over one million responses, around 84 percent in support of Ukraine.
– Redo elections of annexed regions under UN supervision. Russia leaves if that is will of the people.
– Crimea formally part of Russia, as it has been since 1783 (until Khrushchev’s mistake).
– Water supply to Crimea assured.
– Ukraine remains neutral.

China Warns US Of Grave Consequences if Ukraine Joins NATO
By Newsweek. China warned the United States it could face severe consequences—including the prospect of nuclear war—if it allows Ukraine to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), drawing the 30-member alliance into the country’s conflict with Russia.
In a Sunday editorial in the state-owned Global Times, Beijing warned that allowing the country into the alliance—as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has requested—would lead to an inevitable escalation in the conflict, prompting Russian President Vladimir Putin’s threats to use nuclear arms against the West.
While unlikely—U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan stated in a White House press briefing last week that NATO should delay talks on allowing the country into the alliance—the newspaper warned “all European countries will tremble under the shadow of a possible nuclear war” should it take place, and called for the Western alliance to withdraw from its longstanding involvement in Eastern Europe.
“In that case, there will be no security for anyone, not for Ukraine, and not for the world,” the newspaper wrote. “Instead of pursuing resolutions to end the conflict, Washington has, over and over again, displayed that the US is charging toward the other direction—fanning the flames of war.” (Read more from “China Warns US Of Grave Consequences if Ukraine Joins NATO” HERE)
