On October 3 local time, Space X, an American technology company, and Musk, CEO of Tesla, released their views on the situation in Russia and Ukraine on Twitter, which triggered extensive discussion. He suggested that some parts of Ukraine hold a referendum again under the supervision of the United Nations to decide whether to join Russia, but was later ridiculed by Ukrainian President Zelensky.

According to the Capitol Hill, Musk said on Twitter on October 3 that since the population of Russia is more than three times that of Ukraine, Ukraine is unlikely to win the final victory in the all-out war. Therefore, for Ukraine, "if you care about the Ukrainian people, you must seek peace".

"Under the supervision of the United Nations, Russia and Ukraine can hold a referendum again in the four regions of Ukraine (Zaporoge, Kherson, Donetsk and Lugansk) that have voted to join the Russian Federation." Musk wrote, "If the people of these regions are still willing to return to Ukraine, the Russians should leave."

Musk's remarks received a response from Andre Melnik, a Ukrainian diplomat, who asked him to "go away" on Twitter.

Later, Zelensky also mocked Musk's remarks on Twitter. He released his own opinion poll, asking Twitter users which Musk they prefer: "a person who supports Ukraine" or "a person who supports Russia".

From September 23 to 27, Donetsk and other four places held a referendum on joining the Russian Federation. According to the voting results released by the local election committee on the evening of 27th, the approval rate of the voters in the four regions for joining the Russian Federation was 99.23% in Donetsk, 98.42% in Lugansk, 93.11% in Zaporoge and 87.05% in Kherson respectively. In addition, according to the data released by the local election commission, the voting rate in the four regions of the referendum has exceeded the 50% threshold prescribed by law. The Russian side said that the referendum result could be recognized as valid.

On September 27, Zerensky released a video speech late at night to respond to the referendum, saying that "nothing the Russian side does can change Ukraine".
