Just two days after billionaire Elon Musk and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had an ugly spat on Twitter, the Tesla CEO has once again sparked a controversy with his latest tweet: “War is the ultimate Supreme Court.” His tweet is being interpreted as a sign of support for Russia's aggression in its neighbouring country by several social media users. However, Musk maintains that he has, and will, always support Ukraine.

Musk, a prolific social media user, recently put up a poll on Twitter on the Russia-Ukraine war, proposing a UN-supervised election in four occupied regions that Moscow last week moved to annex. Zelensky, in response to Musk’s poll, posted his own poll asking users if they liked the world's richest person more when he supported Ukraine.

On the war front, Ukraine on Thursday said its forces have retaken more settlements in Kherson, one of four partially Russian-occupied regions that President Vladimir Putin formally incorporated into Russia in Europe's biggest annexation since World War Two. Meanwhile, the European Union has approved a fresh package of sanctions against Russia that includes a price cap on oil sales.
