    Bombshell: Tucker Carlsonís Exclusive Interview with Vladimir Putin in Moscow Ė Full Transcript Released!

    n a stunning turn of events, renowned journalist Tucker Carlson has embarked on a mission of historic proportions. With the fate of Ukraine and the world hanging in the balance, Carlson has arrived in Moscow, Russia, determined to interview none other than President Vladimir Putin. Can this audacious move be the key to ending the war in Ukraine and preventing the looming catastrophe of World War Three? Read on to delve into this gripping tale of courage, journalism, and the quest for peace.

    Tucker Carlsonís Exclusive Interview with Vladimir Putin in Moscow Ė Full Transcript:

    TUCKER: What would you tell the people running America?


    PUTIN: Our message is Russia is not your enemy. We donít want war. Weíre ready for peace. Your leaders seek conflict. This is not what we want. Russia stands for its own people. We do not want what is not ours.

    TUCKER: Would you visit Washington?

    PUTIN: Yes, of course. Iíve been to the United States Before. I enjoy visiting and have met with every president except Joe Biden. If invited I would go. Yes.

    TUCKER: What is your opinion of President Biden?

    PUTIN: Weíre convinced he is not running the country. Letís say we have good sources that confirm that but itís plain for anyone to see for themselves. The US has now entered into a dark period. It has unaccountable leadership.

    TUCKER: Do you think Joe Biden won fair and square?

    PUTIN: I would rather not get into domestic American politics but will say my embassy reported your southern border was better run than that 2020 election. (chuckles)

    TUCKER: One poll in America shows you more popular than Biden Ė any reaction?

    PUTIN: (laughs) I donít know if that should be taken seriously but Russian ideals have support. We believe in traditional values; marriage is between a man and a woman: men are men and women are women.

    TUCKER: Who would you like to see as the next president of the United States?

    PUTIN: Once again it is not for us to say or get involved. Contrary to longstanding accusations we do not meddle in your elections. We donít need to because the same people end up running things anyway.

    TUCKER: Why did you invade Ukraine?

    PUTIN: Did we invade or were we invaded? Look at the history. Look at the people living there. Historically itís we who were invaded and are simply fighting back now. The lands and people are Russian and we will have again what was always ours.

    TUCKER: How will you fee lol if Trump won again?

    PUTIN: We had good relations when Mr. Trump was president. There was no war. Our relations were at a high point. That said nothing is predictable or stats the same. We will have to see.

    TUCKER: What do you think of Mr. Zelensky and what would be your message to him?

    PUTIN: I remember laughing to his jokes when he was a comedian in Russia. Letís go back to laughs.

    TUCKER: Why is that?

    PUTIN: There are strong financial entities in whose interest it is to keep us as adversaries. One of your presidents warned against that. We Russians do not have that problem.

    TUCKER: Do you see the United States as an enemy?

    PUTIN: No. Categorically no. We were allies in WWII. Russians helped settle Alaska, California and we were in Hawaii too. Our people are not enemies but those in DC are certainly not our friends.

    TUCKER: Can you be more specific and name names?

    PUTIN: It would be pointless. It is not up to us to solve your domestic issues. Besides, Iím sure you know the names better than us.

    TUCKER: So are you saying your adversary is not Joe Biden but the people behind him?

    PUTIN: Exactly. Joe Biden may not even be aware of whatís going on. He may not understand the level of sanctions thrown at Russia. Who put those sanctions together? Those our the adversaries.

    TUCKER: Is that why you are championing the BRICS?

    PUTIN: The BRICS would exist anyway. Itís a natural reaction to the western trading block. Itís a counterweight. When the dollar is weaponized against states there will be a natural alternative to it. Thatís what we want.

    TUCKER: Is that why you and Russia have been targeted?

    PUTIN: Itís more complicated than that but Iím sure itís a good part of the reason. Whenever the dollar is endangered the United States takes extreme measures. It cannot afford to have the dollar fail.

    TUCKER: But isnít Russia weaker and more vulnerable economically than the US?

    PUTIN: When you look at the size of economies we are small. But few people take into account our vast natural resources. Russia has over $80 trillion in the ground. No country even comes close to us.

    TUCKER: What is your opinion of President Biden?

    PUTIN: We are convinced he is not running the country. Letís say we have good sources that confirm that but itís plain for anyone to see for themselves. The US has now entered into a dark period. It has unaccountable leadership.

    TUCKER: OK. Point well taken but donít you have the same issues in Russia.

    PUTIN: Yes. To a degree. But in Russia those interests are more aligned with the thinking of the average Russian man on the street. In the United States that is not the case. The elites have deserted you.

    TUCKER: so who do you think is running the US then?

    PUTIN: The forces which have always ran it. You may change presidents but you do not change those in real power. That is who we have to deal with. Joe Biden is just a facade for this power structure.

    TUCKER: Letís turn to politics. Whatís your opinion of President Biden?

    PUTIN: Weíre convinced heís not running the country. Letís say we have sources that confirm that but itís plain for anyone to see. The US has now entered into a dark period. It has unaccountable leadership.

    TUCKER: So who do you think is running the US then?

    PUTIN: The same forces which have always run it. You may change presidents but you do not change those in real power. That is who we have to deal with. Joe Biden is just a facade for this power structure.

    TUCKER: Letís turn to politics. Whatís your opinion of President Biden?

    PUTIN: Weíre convinced heís not running the country. Letís say we have sources that confirm that but itís plain for anyone to see. The US has now entered into a dark period. It has unaccountable leadership.

    TUCKER: But there have been persistent reports you have cancer?

    PUTIN: I assure you those rumors are false. if I had cancer and beat it I would share the good news and the cure with the world.

    TUCKER: Thank you for sitting down with us. How is your health?There have been some rumors

    PUTIN: Iím glad to talk to you and through you to the American people. Iím fine. I feel good. Given my years Iím in the best of health but father time.

    TUCKER: Letís turn to politics. Whatís your opinion of President Biden?

    PUTIN: Weíre convinced heís not running the country. Letís say we have sources that confirm that but itís plain for anyone to see. The US has now entered into a dark period. It has unaccountable leadership.

    TUCKER: When you say some fear him are you saying Musk has enemies?

    PUTIN: Itís clear to see he has enemies within the United States Ė the way he was stripped of $50 billion in assets Ė we would call that being signaled out for special treatment. Itís unfair on the face of it.

    TUCKER: Didnít you fear Musk when he started supplying Ukraine with Starlink gear?

    PUTIN: If anyone seriously thinks a few internet dishes can defeat the might of Russia Ė well what can I say. But no, we did not fear or blame Mr. Musk. The government didnít give him much choice.

    TUCKER: Alot has changed in the world. Whatís your opinion of Elon Musk?

    PUTIN: We see Mr. Musk as a businessman Ė a highly successful one. Heís built a great fortune and a huge following. Heís a unique thinker with a force of personality who cannot be bought. Some fear that.

    TUCKER: Do you any advice for Elon?

    PUTIN: I would say continue on. Do not be intimidated. But if the going ever gets too rough there is Russia. We would gladly open our doors to you. We have welcomed American businessmen before and would value someone of Mr. Muskís caliber.

    TUCKER: Letís turn to Trump. First tell me how you feel about the current situation with the likelihood of him being reelected?

    PUTIN: It would be a bit strange and out of order but we are well prepared. He has promised to end the fighting in Ukraine and we support that notion.

    TUCKER: How could he end you end the war so fast?

    PUTIN: For one thing he never insulted us. He has a great respect for Russia. We would start from a position of friendship and trust Ė then all problems are solvable. We could get it done. Trust me.

    TUCKER: Are you referring to Biden calling you a killer?

    PUTIN: We have been the recipients of numerous insults and slurs going back a few generations of politicians. Mr. Trump was a refreshing break from that. He is very popular in Russia. Perhaps that wonít do him any good.

    TUCKER: Are you in any communication with Trump?

    PUTIN: No. Of course not. But should he win again our lines of communication would open up instantly whereas right now we have no dialogue with President Biden.

    TUCKER: Thatís shocking to me. No o e from the White House has been in contact with you?

    PUTIN: Thatís right. No one has called since we congratulated Mr. Biden on his election victory. Itís puzzling to us that communications are colder now than during the cold war.

    TUCKER: How do you think the 2024 election will go?

    PUTIN: We are just observing. Itís our responsibility to be vigilant since it will impact the world. We are hoping the election is carried out in a way where the results can be believed. In Russia we do not have mail in ballots.

    TUCKER: Letís turn to China. What is your relationship like?

    PUTIN: President Xi and I are especially close. Russia and China are enjoying good relations as of now which is an obvious asset to us sunce they are one of our biggest energy partners. We will continue to be friends.

    TUCKER: There are accusations China has helped you in the war in Ukraine. Is that true?

    PUTIN: That is not something I can discuss. Letís just say Russia isnít an isolated power. That strategy has failed. We have more allies and trading partners now than before the war started.

    TUCKER: Do you ever contemplate a situation where Russia and China may join forces against the United States?

    PUTIN: Do you mean economically or militarily? I would say we want neither. Itís not in our interest to clash with the US because all sides would lose in such a conflict.

    TUCKER: Speaking of conflicts, what is your take on the Gaza situation?

    PUTIN: It is really unfortunate. The Palestinians are being devastated. Israel is acting in an unconstrained manner. It shows the terrible double standards in the world. Where are the sanctions on Israel?

    TUCKER: Is Russia involved in any way especially through your alliance with Iran?

    PUTIN: No. Of course not. We do not oppose the existence of Israel but at the same time we support the right of the Palestinians to self determination. We want to be even handed.

    TUCKER: Are you following whatís happening on the US southern border?

    PUTIN: Actually yes. Itís part of my daily briefing. We Russians find it ironically amusing your Congress will spend billions protecting foreign borders but neglect itís own. Itís quiet laughable but deadly.

    TUCKER: Deadly? How do you mean that?

    PUTIN: Deadly serious of course. People are dying daily crossing your border in an uncontrolled way. It is a free-for-all. The world hasnít seen anything like it in the modern era Ė reckless for a country to throw itself wide open like that.

    TUCKER: Is Russia taking advantage of the border situation in any way?

    PUTIN: No. Why should we. We donít have to do a thing. America is self destructing. And as Napoleon said, donít stand in the way of your enemy destroying themselves.

    TUCKER: So then you do see America as an enemy?

    PUTIN: That was just a saying but the current administration is definitely not a friend.

    TUCKER: Can that be changed?

    PUTIN: Thatís why you have elections.

    TUCKER: Thank you again for continuing to engage with me on so many different topics. Can we get even more interesting so to speak?

    PUTIN: For sure. I am open to most subjects.

    TUCKER: Letís touch on climate change. Itís still being pushed in the United States and Europe. Whatís your position?

    PUTIN: Humanity is not even a Type 1 civilization on the Kardashev scale. If we canít harness the energy potential of the planet how can we control the climate?

    TUCKER: Are you at least concerned?

    PUTIN: Iím more concerned with real issues. Climate change is not one of them. The Earth does a fairly good job of regulating itself. And if Siberia gets a little warmer all the better. More farmland for Russia.

    TUCKER: But what would you tell the true believers whoíre convinced weíre headed for disaster?

    PUTIN: Iíd tell them worrying about climate change is like complaining about the weather. If you donít like the climate, move. If you are worried about the weather, get an umbrella.

    TUCKER: Along those lines, how do you see the transgender movement?

    PUTIN: Itís interesting to me that all the things which use to be a target of blackmail are now badges of honor. In Russia there are no laws either way but we certainly do not force our children into it.

    TUCKER: Russia has been criticized for its ant gay laws and as being unfriendly to LGBTQ+.

    PUTIN: We have laws which protect our children. And we do not drape our embassies in rainbow flags. Thatís correct. Otherwise we do not interfere in the private lives of adult citizens.

    TUCKER: Do you follow American sports? We are about to have the Super Bowl.

    PUTIN: In fact yes. Russia is a great sporting nation. We hosted the Winter Olympics and the World Cup fairly recently. We like all sport.

    TUCKER: What do you think of American football?

    PUTIN: Itís an interesting sport. But why do you call it football when the ball is almost always played with the hands? It also seems needlessly violent at times.

    TUCKER: Thatís true. Will you be watching?

    PUTIN: The game will not be shown in Russia.

    TUCKER: So you wonít get to see Taylor Swift either then?

    PUTIN: No. We have been given a reprieve.

    TUCKER: Thank you President Putin for your time.

    Fake. This isn't Putin at all. No way would he EVER say stuff like this. (Tucker would also ask far better questions, as well as doing much more listening.)

    I could have done a much better job of fabricating an imaginary Putin interview. Many in the west still don't fully understand how sophisticated an international statesman Putin is, or grasp his deep knowledge of history. Not the tiniest bit of that can be seen anywhere here.

    And the uncorrected typos are a dead giveaway, too. When this kind of thing appears on the net, we always need to read it carefully!

    The video has English subtitles, and it's totally real: regular (and well-informed!) people being interviewed in the street in Moscow and asked about Tucker, replying that of course they know him well and they're delighted he's come to Russia.

    Hi Bill yes I know it has subtitles.

    The point I was trying to makeÖis it a correct translation.

    Anyone can post a video of someone speaking Russian, but are the subtitles the correct translation.

    My apologies, I'd misunderstood.

    My Russian is rudimentary (Mashika, where are you?? ), but as best I could tell when listening carefully to this, yes, the translations are correct.

    "Most Americans Are Not Informed... We're Here Because We Love The US" - Tucker Carlson Explains Why He Is Interviewing Vladimir Putin

    BY TYLER DURDEN
    TUESDAY, FEB 06, 2024 - 02:05 PM
    As the left freaks out about Tucker Carlson's upcoming interview of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the former Fox News host (who can now be found at tuckercarlson.com) has published a pre-interview explainer over why he's interviewing Putin - which boils down to an uncurious Western media, which has resulted in a grossly uninformed public.

    "Here's why we're doing it. First, because it's our job. We're in journalism. Our duty is to inform people. 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. And has depopulated the largest country in Europe. But the long-term effects are even more profound."

    Carlson notes that the Ukraine was has "utterly reshaped the global military and trade alliances" and "upended the world economy."

    He also hits on the dire state of the Post-WWII (Bretton Woods) economic order, noting that it's "coming apart very fast," along with "the dominance of the US dollar."

    The failures of corporate media

    Carlson notes that Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky has been the beneficiary of softball, curated, Western interviews which he calls "prep sessions."

    "That is not journalism. It is government propaganda," said Carlson.

    "At the same time, our politicians and media outlets have been doing this, promoting a foreign leader like he's a new consumer brand, not a single Western journalist has bothered to interview the president of the other country involved in this conflict, Vladimir Putin. Most Americans have no idea why Putin invaded Ukraine, or what his goals are now. They've never heard his voice. That's wrong. Americans have a right to know all they can about a war they're implicated in, and we have the right to tell them about it because we are Americans, too."

    Tucker previously relayed a story about trying to set up a Putin interview, until a Washington, DC source briefed him about how the NSA spied on him:

    "The NSA broke into my signal account, which I didn't know they could do," he previously said.

    '"I got a call from somebody in Washington. This person said: 'Are you gonna come to Washington anytime soon?' Yeah. Actually, I'm gonna be up in a week, meet me Sunday morning."

    "So I go, and this person's like: 'Are you planning a trip to go see Putin?' And I was like, 'how would you know that?' I haven't told anybody. I mean anybody. Not my brother. Not my wife, nobody."

    "How would you know that? 'Because NSA pulled your text with this other person you were texting.'"

    Carlson says he's doing the interview "Because we love the United States. And we want it to remain prosperous and free."

    Well the transcript is certainly doing the roundsÖ
    Yes, of course it is.

    there is a video in this link below but in Russian, can anyone confirm that what they are saying is linked to the supposed interview.
    The video has English subtitles, and it's totally real: regular (and well-informed!) people being interviewed in the street in Moscow and asked about Tucker, replying that of course they know him well and they're delighted he's come to Russia.
    Hi Bill yes I know it has subtitles.

    The point I was trying to makeÖis it a correct translation.

    Anyone can post a video of someone speaking Russian, but are the subtitles the correct translation.
    I watched it through and what I heard was what's been said, there were no untruths in this clip

    If anyone is subscribed to Epoch Times they have piece on this today : Tucker Carlson Confirms Interview with Vladimir Putin

    TRANSCRIPT

    "Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Feb. 6 confirmed heís in Russia to interview President Vladimir Putin.

    ďWe'll be doing that soon,Ē Mr. Carlson said in a video posted to the X social media website.

    Rumors had swirled for days after reports Mr. Carlson was spotted in Moscow.

    ďThere are risks to conducting an interview like this, obviously. So we thought about it carefully over many months,Ē Mr. Carlson said.

    He said the motivation to interview Mr. Putin stemmed from gaining insight into his mindset. If the interview happens, it would be the first time Mr. Putin is interviewed since Russia invaded Ukraine in early 2022.

    ďOur duty is to inform people. Two years into a war thatís reshaping the entire world, most Americans are not informed,Ē Mr. Carlson said. He noted that many media outlets have interviewed Ukrainian figures, including Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, but few have conducted interviews with Russians.

    ďMost Americans have no idea why Putin invaded Ukraine, or what his goals are now,Ē Mr. Carlson said. ďTheyíve never heard his voice. Thatís wrong. Americans have a right to know all they can about a war theyíre implicated in, and we have the right to tell them about it.Ē

    Some of Mr. Carlsonís competitors, including CNN host Erin Burnett, have criticized Mr. Carlson for interviewing Mr. Putin.

    ďPutin is trying to court the MAGA GOP in the United States. In fact, one of the leaders of the MAGA GOP is in Moscow tonight,ď Ms. Burnett said on her show this week. She added later that Mr. Carlson was Ēpossibly there in Moscow to interview Putin, definitely there as a Putin-supporting celebrity.Ē

    Defending the Interview

    Mr. Carlson said in his video announcement: ďWe are not here because we love Vladimir Putin. We are here because we love the United States.Ē
    He noted that the video of the interview will be available for free and said Elon Musk, the owner of X, has already promised not to censor the interview in any way once itís posted to X.

    ďWeíre grateful for that. Western governments, by contrast, will certainly do their best to censor this video on other less-principled platforms because thatís what they do. They are afraid of information they canít control, but you have no reason to be afraid of it,Ē he said. ďWe are not encouraging you to agree with what Putin may say in this interview. But we are urging you to watch it. You should know as much as you can. And then, like a free citizen and not a slave, you can decide for yourself.Ē

    Mr. Carlson, 54, is an American journalist who has worked for CNN, PBS, and MSNBC in addition to Fox News, which he left in 2023.

    A show he started on X has drawn hundreds of millions of views and high-profile guests, including former President Donald Trump. He has been rumored in some circles to be a possible vice presidential candidate for President Trump, who is the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination.

    The video of Mr. Carlson appeared to be filmed on a balcony overlooking some of the buildings in Moscow.

    Blocked Interview?

    Mr. Carlson has said in the past that he tried to interview Mr. Putin but was blocked by the U.S. government.
    ď'Youíre not allowed to hear Putinís voice. Because why? There was no vote on it. No one asked me. Iím 54 years old. Iíve paid my taxes and followed the law,Ē he told Swiss magazine Die Weltwoche recently.

    In the new video, he added: ďAlmost three years ago, the Biden administration illegally spied on our text messages and then leaked the contents to their servants in the news media. They did this in order to stop a Putin interview that we were planning. Last month, weíre pretty certainly did exactly the same thing once again. But this time, we came to Moscow anyway.Ē

    Mr. Carlson said in 2021 that he was trying to arrange an interview with Mr. Putin when the National Security Agency (NSA) unmasked his identity and leaked some of his emails to rival news outlets. The agency has denied the allegations.

    ďTucker Carlson has never been an intelligence target of the agency and the NSA has never had any plans to try to take his program off the air,Ē the agency said previously.

    The White House on Tuesday declined to deny the claims but described them as ridiculous.

    ďItís a ridiculous premise and a ridiculous statement that was made about this administration,ď White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. ĒI just want to be very, very clear.Ē

    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, meanwhile, told reporters in Moscow this week that ďI am not commenting in any way on the movements of an American journalist.Ē

    ďMany foreign journalists come to Russia every day, many continue to work here, and we welcome this,Ē he said. ďWe have nothing to announce in terms of the presidentís interviews to foreign media. If such plans will be coming true, we will let you know.Ē

    Reuters contributed to this report.

    Fake. This isn't Putin at all. No way would he EVER say stuff like this. (Tucker would also ask far better questions, as well as doing much more listening.)

    I could have done a much better job of fabricating an imaginary Putin interview. Many in the west still don't fully understand how sophisticated an international statesman Putin is, or grasp his deep knowledge of history. Not the tiniest bit of that can be seen anywhere here.

    And the uncorrected typos are a dead giveaway, too. When this kind of thing appears on the net, we always need to read it carefully!

    I think it's appropriate now to close this thread, with sincere thanks to all. The real thing can be found here, released publicly 12 hours ago.
