Tucker Says He’s Also Asked to Interview Zelensky, Hasn’t Yet Heard Back.

Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson has revealed he traveled to Moscow, Russia, to interview the country’s president, Vladimir Putin. He also emphasized that the same interview request was extended to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, but he has yet to receive a response.

Carlson has repeatedly criticized both Republicans and the Biden government for continuing to fund the Ukrainian war effort, perpetuating the conflict, which has seen an estimated 500,000 people killed since Russia launched its invasion in 2022. The lack of knowledge among Americans regarding the ongoing human cost of the war was a key factor in his decision to move forward with the interview with Putin.

“Here’s why we’re doing it. First, because it’s our job. We’re in journalism. Our duty is to inform people,” Carlson said, announcing the interview on his Tucker Carlson Network. He continued: “Two years into a war that’s reshaping the entire world, most Americans are not informed. They have no real idea what’s happening in this region, here in Russia or 600 miles away in Ukraine. But they should know. They’re paying for much of it in ways they might not fully yet perceive.”

“The war in Ukraine is a human disaster. It’s left hundreds of thousands of people dead. An entire generation of young Ukrainians,” he added before explaining that the war has also reshaped military and trade alliances and disrupted large parts of the global economy.

Other American populist leaders have joined Carlson’s call for an end to U.S. involvement in the war. Late last year, Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH) said Ukraine would likely need to cede some territory to Russia to bring the war to an end. The Ohio Republican argued Ukrainian’s demands that the 1991 borders with Russia be restored — backed by the Biden government — were unrealistic.
