“Around the world, people are watching that ludicrous interview with Vladimir Putin conducted by Tucker Carlson, and we must not fall for this tissue of lies above all for the notion that Putin is somehow fated to succeed in Ukraine. On the contrary, he is doomed to failure,” Johnson declared in a video that the British media outlet the Daily Mail posted.
Since leaving Fox News year, Tucker rolled out his own media venture and program on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter. On February 6, 2024, Carlson announced that he would interview Putin. As The Hill noted, Carlson’s interview was
“the first time a member of the Western media interviewed the Russian leader since he invaded Ukraine nearly two years ago.”
