The Kremlin believes that Elon Musk's invitation to Russian President Vladimir Putin to chat at the Clubhouse was a "misunderstanding." According to Russian President's press secretary Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin approached Musk for details, but received no response.
On February 13, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk asked the official Twitter account of the President of Russia if he wanted to join a conversation with him on Clubhouse. The Kremlin considered Musk's proposal with an invite to Putin interesting. Peskov noted that Putin has nothing to do with the Kremlin's social media account, and that the Kremlin needs to brainstorm before agreeing.
было бы большой честью поговорить с вами— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 13, 2021
On March 2, Peskov told reporters that as of today, the Kremlin "considers the topic to be exhausted." He told reporters that the Kremlin had tried to contact Musk to clarify the details of the proposal, but received no response.
“Probably, it was some kind of misunderstanding, because we asked a question to clarify the details of this proposal. But, apparently, it has nothing to do with Elon Musk. We have not received any response. Therefore, most likely, this topic has already been exhausted."
The conversation between Musk and Putin could be very interesting, and because it would be open to the audience (although the Clubhouse room is limited to only 5,000 people), it would make a lot of sense. The entrepreneur and the President could discuss a number of important topics, such as the development of the space industry, the climate situation on Earth, etc.
