Tucker Carlson's endeavor for insight: exploring Moscow and possible interview with Putin
Photos of Tucker Carlson in Moscow were released by Russian media on Monday, February 5. Known for his conservative views and staunch support for Trump, the American reporter made a post on Tuesday stating that he intended to conduct an interview with Vladimir Putin himself.
American reporter's visit to Moscow
When questioned about Carlson's visit to the Russian administration building, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to comment. Thus, it remains unclear whether the reporter actually met with the president.
Carlson stated that he intended to provide further insights. His objective is to show Americans the Ukrainian war from the viewpoint of Russia and its president.
Additional photos of the reporter were posted on social media on Wednesday. Images from the X portal show Carlson at a "Russian McDonald's," or a "Tasty - and Point" restaurant, where he reportedly ordered a burger, fries, and a soda.
Later, Carlson made a stop at Auchan, where he perused grocery items including coffee and tea. He was also seen filling up his vehicle at a nearby gas station. During his visit, Tucker autographed a postcard and received a package of "Bird's Milk" as a gift.
Social media indicates the reporter was open to conversation and posing for photos with Russians. He expressed his admiration for Moscow and Russia on multiple occasions. He offered many compliments, and when asked about American politicians, he reportedly laughed and referred to them as fools.
Carlson left Moscow on the same day. Reports suggest that an interview took place, but there is no confirmation of this. Sources from the Kremlin claim that Carlson held talks with both the President and his administration.
Tucker's arrival has been eagerly anticipated for a while. He has been warmly received. Everyone in the presidential administration has been working cohesively— stated a source.
