It was not immediately clear from Musk’s statement why he was trying to make contact with representatives from the Kremlin. The Twitter treatment of Musk tagged is the official account of Russian president, longtime director Vladimir Putin.
Musk has been active on Clubhouse, an animated, invitation-only app where users can engage in incoming audio conversations. Founders and other celebrity officials have logged into Clubhouse for talks, including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

Musk has also been an interviewer on Clubhouse, hosting a conversation with Robinhood Chief Vlad Tenev. Last week, Musk said on Twitter that he had agreed to do a Clubhouse look with Kayne West, saying: “The most interesting result is the most likely.”
The Kremlin’s Twitter account had not responded to Musk’s message early Sunday morning. Insider reached out to the Kremlin for comment on Sunday.
Earlier this year, local reports said the Russian government may fine StarXink SpaceX Internet users. An analyst told Insider at the time that he believed it was easier for Russia to fine citizens, than Starlink.
