  • Putin gave interview to Carlson on Tuesday
  • First Putin interview with U.S. media since 2021
  • Kremlin says Western media has not been impartial
  • Carlson says Americans have a right to know
MOSCOW, Feb 7 (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin granted an interview to U.S. television host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday, the Kremlin said, his first to an American journalist since before Russia's invasion of Ukraine nearly two years ago.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Putin had agreed to the Carlson interview because the approach of the former Fox News host differed from the "one-sided" reporting of the Ukraine conflict by many Western news outlets. 
"When it comes to the countries of the collective West, the large network media, TV channels, (and) large newspapers can in no way boast of even trying to at least look impartial in terms of coverage," Peskov told a regular news briefing on Wednesday.
"These are all media outlets that take an exceptionally one-sided position. Of course, there is no desire to communicate with such media, and it hardly makes sense, and it is unlikely that it will be useful." 
Asked directly why Carlson had landed an interview with Putin, Peskov said the American journalist's approach was "in no way pro-Russian, it is not pro-Ukrainian - it is pro-American".
The interview is likely to be aired on Thursday, Russia's TASS news agency said, citing reports by the Wall Street Journal. Putin, who ordered the invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, 2022, was last formally interviewed by a U.S. media outlet in October 2021, when CNBC's Hadley Gamble spoke to him, though he has since spoken to Russian, Chinese and Kazakh media. 
Many Western media organizations have left Moscow or shuttered their operations due to onerous media laws passed shortly after the war. Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich, an American citizen, was detained on spying charges in March 2023.
Carlson said in a post on X on Tuesday that the interview would enable Americans to understand Russia's view of the war.
"We are not here because we love Vladimir Putin....We 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," he said.
Putin says he sent tens of thousands of troops into Ukraine to sa***uard Russia's national security against what he casts as a hostile West. Kyiv and its Western allies say it is an unprovoked war of aggression and imperial-style land grab.
Carlson, who has said much Western media coverage of the war is biased in Kyiv's favor, said he had also asked Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy for an interview.

Desperation met stupidity on the corner of bad luck and despair, and the democratic party was born.

not every dollar, IMO some goes in elected officials pockets, a lot goes to corrupt in Europe.

Don't forget the "big guy's, Joe Biden's cut" and I am sure Hunter aka "Snort Biden" gets his cut too. Too, Zelensky and his wife enjoy shopping sprees and vacations courtesy of the American taxpayer. We pay their garbage collector's and other's salaries and fund their pensions too.

Still cheaper than having to go toWar with Russia, and Russia has lost so much equipment in Ukraine that they will be licking their wounds for years to come.    China knows that if they move  on Taiwan, that they too will be licking their  wounds.   Putin's interview with Carlson was  a reminder that Russia is very much the  same Russia that Reagan knew.   Trump is and was wrong about Russiarrr and NATO.

Why should we go to war with Russia? Russia has done nothing to us. We should concentrate on Mexico and the invasion coming from the border. What would be cheaper and better is not to fund Ukraine at all. I hope we can get Biden out of the WH before he can start WW3, but it is looking "iffy".

going to war with Mexico is the dumbest thing ive heard since Putin decided to bring war to hos own doorstep.   Lets destabilize the country right nect to us, and see how many refugees we get then?!?   Lets make the cartels decide to officially go to war woth America, that way when im on vaction in Cancun I can be a target, or better yet, so Mexico can target our school kids in Mexico wiith drones, thats a great idea.  What exactly would a victory look like?   You would turn 70 million people against the United States overnight..  then your southern border issue woukd become even more scary..  thats the dumbest Right Wing talking point Ive ever heard.

Who said anything about war with Mexico?  Sorry the idea of stopping the flow of illegals into the US set you off on such a silly rant, but gee, would that be any dumber than what you liberals are doing now with your proxy war with Russia and other countries? Refugees? You mean more invaders than we have now? Who's going to help us when you guys manage to start WW3, and we are facing not only Russia but China and a few Middle Eastern countries that are also flooding in now through our borders AND being brought here by liberals? Time face and fix our own problems here in the US. Your "fix" for the invasion happening now is to do nothing because you don't want to upset Mexico and have your vacation ruined? Now THAT is the dumbest left wing talking point I have ever heard of. Pure malarkey. The Bidens have made enough money off of Ukraine, time to stop the flow of cash to the "big guy". BTW, you are already being targeted by the cartels when you go to Mexico and even here. Your kids and their lives are being poisoned by their drugs and your kids' educations are being ruined because of your liberal policies and having to cater to the illegal's kids that can't speak English. You really need to think before you call what others have to say, dumb.
