Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov mocked the world’s richest man Elon Musk for daring Russian President Vladimir Putin to `single combat’.
Ramzan sarcastically referred to Musk as `Elona’ and offered him physical training.
Ramzan put out a message for the Tesla chief on Telegram in response to his Putin challenge. “Don’t measure your strength against Putin. You’re in two completely different leagues, ” he said.
“…You’ll need to pump up those muscles in order to change from the gentle (effeminate) Elona into the brutal Elon you need to be.”
Ramzan even offered Musk training at three centers in the Chechen Republic to build muscles.
“You will return from the Chechen Republic a completely different person, Elona, that is, Elon,” he said.
A few hours later, Musk responded in equal sarcasm and declined the offer.
“Thank you for the offer, but such excellent training would give me too much of an advantage If he (Vladimir Putin) is afraid to fight, I will agree to use only my left hand and I am not even left-handed. Elona.” he tweeted.
