MOSCOW (Reuters) – An invitation from Tesla boss Elon Musk to Russian President Vladimir Putin to join him in a chat on a social networking app? “Very interesting,” the Kremlin said Monday.

Musk tagged the Kremlin’s Twitter account Sunday, tweeting, “Will you (be) with me for a conversation at the clubhouse?”

“It would be a great honor to speak with you,” Musk, the world’s richest man, added in a follow-up tweet in Russian.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters during a conference call: “In general, this is obviously a very interesting proposal, but we need to understand what is meant, what is being proposed … first we have to check, then we will react. ”

Clubhouse, a San Francisco-based app launched last year, requires newcomers to be invited by existing users before they can join. It offers a selection of audio chat rooms broken down by topic.

Putin, a former KGB officer who once described the Internet as a CIA project, has for years described himself as suspicious of modern technology.

“We will find out first. “President Putin does not use personal networks directly, he does not have them,” Peskov said.
