The Kremlin's press service has officially confirmed that American journalist Tucker Carlson has conducted an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
This development was reported on February 7 through the RIA Kremlinpool telegram channel, marking a notable event given the current geopolitical climate.
The Kremlin highlighted Carlson's unique stance in the media landscape, describing him as neither pro-Russian nor pro-Ukrainian, but distinctly pro-American. This perspective is recognized as a departure from the traditional viewpoints often presented by Anglo-Saxon media outlets.
Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary for the Russian president, noted that the interview was recorded by Carlson just a day prior. Peskov's remarks, as reported by journalist Pavel Zarubin of VGTRK, suggest that the content of the interview will soon be available for public viewing.
"As it is prepared, it will be released, then you will have the opportunity to form your own impressions," Peskov was quoted by RIA Novosti.
The confirmation of this interview comes at a time of heightened interest in Russia's international relations and domestic policies. The decision to grant an interview to Carlson, known for his pro-American viewpoint, indicates a willingness by the Kremlin to engage with a diverse range of media perspectives.
