Why Twitter Stock Is Falling After Elon Musk Deal

Recently, Musk offered a peace-deal key for Russia-Ukraine. The harmony deal includes the provision to redo the referendum under the United Nations. It also asks Ukraine to remain neutral. The provision also makes Crimea formally a part of Russia. Reports further revealed that Musk may have offered this peace deal after talking with Russian president Vladimir Putin.
