Ramzan Kadyrov, head of the Chechen Republic, is a Putin ally who has been linked with horrifying purges against homosexuals in his area, involving torture and bloodshed. Kadyrov rushed to defend Putin and reply to the Tesla CEO, who challenged the Russian President to combat, by calling him ‘Elona’ in a mocking way.
On Monday, Elon Musk wrote on his Twitter account: “I hereby challenge Владимир Путин [Vladimir Putin] to single combat. Stakes are Україна [Ukraine].”
He hinted at his experience of practicing a range of martial arts, including Brazilian jiu-jitsu, judo, Kyokushin karate, taekwondo, judo, and sambo.
A few hours later, Kadyrov replied to the Tesla and SpaceX CEO with a post on Telegram claiming that Putin could “beat the hell out of” Musk.
He said: “Elon Musk, a word of advice: Don’t measure your strength against that of Putin’s. You’re in two completely different leagues. And it’s not even about martial arts or judo, for example.”
And he continued: “How do you see it? Are you in the red corner of the boxing ring, a businessman and Twitter user; and Putin, in blue, a world politician and strategist, who inspires awe in the West and in the US?
“Vladimir Vladimirovich will look unsportsmanlike when he beats the hell out of you, a much weaker opponent. Therefore, 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.
“I propose training at one of several centers in the Chechen Republic:
“• Russian Special Forces University: Here you will undergo firearms training with world championship special forces, who beat US special forces in 2015 like it was nothing.
“• Akhmat Fight Club: This is where you’ll be trained to take a punch, a quality needed in any fight. Under the guidance of Abuzayed Vismuradov, you will learn to quickly pull yourself up not just physically, but also mentally, giving you nerves of steel.
“• Grozny Chechen State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company: Practice within the walls of “Grozny” where they will tell you about American methods of “black PR,” and teach you how to monitor and update social network accounts.
“You will return from the Chechen Republic a completely different person Elona, that is, Elon.”
The next day, Elon Musk posted Ramzan Kadyrov’s reply on his Twitter account and responded by commenting: “Thank you for the offer, but such excellent training would give me too much of an advantage.
“If he is afraid to fight, I will agree to use only my left hand and I am not even left-handed.” And signed: “Elona”
Following this, Ramzan Kadyrov responded by continuing the mockery on Telegram.
He wrote: ”Well, Elona is a completely different matter – a very beautiful name, graceful, refined. I’m glad that Musk listened to my wish. So much better. It is necessary to rename from Elon to Elona Musk.
“And yet, Elona, do not try to compete with my President. I’m his foot soldier, and I’ll have to challenge you back.
“And then it will no longer be a funny harmless correspondence. Save your hands, they’ll need to tweet.”
The Tesla CEO then changed the name on his Twitter account to Elona Musk, causing thousands of reactions by Twitter users and putting his name on the Trending side of social media.
