Report, whose popularity and influence have exploded around the world since his support for Ukraine after Russia invaded the country, has been on social media since Oct. 3. But the world's richest man has proposed a controversial peace plan to end the war that started on February 24 and has already caused thousands of deaths and displaced millions.

I agree with Musk in part. Particularly on Crimea and a new round of voting.

I disagree on neutrality and not joining NATO though. Neutrality won't protect Ukraine when, in 5-10 years Russia is once more capable of invading. And it would be a sham anyways. I was in Finland a few weeks ago with their Air Force. They were forced by Russia to declare neutrality after WWII, taking a few bits of land in the process. Later they dictated to Finland what sort of military capabilities they were able to purchase. Maybe not quite an SSR, but certainly not a free and independent state. Even though they kicked Russia's ass all over the place on a couple of occasions.

You don't make concessions when you are winning, and Ukraine is clearly winning.

I can't imagine why anyone would want to be part of Russia, but perhaps some do. It's entirely possible that UKR could invade Crimea and find themselves in the same situation that Russians found themselves when they invaded Ukraine.

It may not be well known, but Ukraine was part of Russia until 1954 when it was administratively ceded from the Russian SSR to the Ukrainian SSR. At the time it didn't matter, they were all under the rules of the USSR. When Ukraine declared itself independent from the USSR in 1990, the Ukrainian Crimean Oblast held a referendum to remain within the USSR. It was supported by 94% of Crimean voters. Once Ukraine was independent, there were several more referendums related to Crimean autonomy in 1991 and 1994. After the 1994 referendum, the Ukrainian government declared the referendum illegal and abolished the office of the president of Crimea.

Like I said, I can't fathom anyone ever choosing to be part of Russia. But I also never understood anyone wanting to be part of the Islamic State. The difference between Crimeans and the Islamic State is that Crimeans don't seem interested in establishing some sort of new empire.
