Elon Musk thinks the US should stop sending aid to Ukraine.

The world's richest person told US Republican senators during an X Spaces "there is no way in hell" Vladimir Putin was going to lose the war with Ukraine. He encouraged citizens to contact their representatives about the Ukraine funding Bill in comments reported by Bloomberg.

"This spending does not help Ukraine; prolonging the war does not help Ukraine," he said. "Having these boys die for nothing is wrong and needs to stop."

Musk said Putin risked being "assassinated" if he were to back off the fight in Ukraine.

The Tesla CEO made the comments during a Twitter Spaces conversation with Sen. Ron Johnson, JD Vance, Mike Lee, and failed presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy.

Musk also insisted he wasn't a Putin apologist, calling the accusation "absurd," and said his companies had done more to "undermine Russia than anyone."

The billionaire reportedly grew anxious about his involvement in Ukraine after he supplied Starlink satellite receivers in February 2022. Musk provided access to the SpaceX satellites to allow civilians retain internet access amid Russia's attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure.

In October, Musk tweeted his idea for restoring peace in Ukraine, which parroted Kremlin talking points and suggested Ukraine cede territory to Russia.

He also posted a poll asking users to vote on the plan. At the time, a Kremlin spokesperson called Musk's proposed plan "positive," RIA News reported.

Fellow "Paypal mafia" member Reid Hoffman accused Musk of buying what Putin was "selling, hook, line, and sinker" when it came to war.

Representatives for Musk did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider, made outside normal working hours.
