Elon Musk has encouraged U.S. voters to ask their representatives to oppose further military funding for Ukraine, claiming that there is “no way in hell” that Russia will lose the war and that further support to Kyiv will only prolong a futile conflict.
The billionaire shared his views while speaking to GOP Senators Ron Johnson, Mike Lee, and J.D. Vance, as well as former Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy in an X Spaces conversation hosted by venture capitalist David Sacks. The group discussed a $95 billion spending package—including $60 billion for Ukraine—which cleared a key hurdle on Monday in a 66-33 Senate vote, meaning a vote on final passage could now take place this week.
Sen. Johnson opined that the “only way” that the war in Ukraine could end “is in a settlement.” He added that sending another $60 billion in aid would senselessly add “fuel to the flames of a bloody stalemate.” “As evil a war criminal as Putin is, he’s not going to lose this war, and our colleagues here just aren’t willing to accept that reality and they’re living in a fantasy world thinking Ukraine can win this thing—they can’t.”
