Tucker Carlson spotted in Russia, spurs rumors of interview with Putin

The American journalist and commentator arrived in the Russian capital three days prior to the sighting.


American journalist and commentator Tucker Carlson was spotted at the play "Spartacus" at the Bolshoi Theater on Saturday. People online are now speculating if he is there for an interview with Russian President Vladamir Putin.

Pictures published by the Russian news agency, Mash, on its Telegram feed revealed the sighting of the well-known journalist.

The photos were then also posted to X by account, Trollstoy, along with a caption that explained the whereabouts of Carlson.

In reaction to the photos, some X users speculated that he would be interviewing Putin for his next hit.

One replied to the post, "Maybe he’s finally gonna do that Putin interview he was told not to. That’d be intense."

Another mentioning the possibility of an interview in Russia, but not mentioning Putin by name, replied, "That is going to be the highest hit count for any interview in history, probably if it materializes."

Carlson has had desire to go and interview Putin before, however, the journalist later revealed that the US government put a stop to the possibility.

"I tried to interview Vladimir Putin, and the U.S. government stopped me," Carlson said in an article published the Swiss publication, Die Weltwoche earlier in September. "By the way, nobody defended me. I don't think there was anybody in the news media who said, 'Wait a second. I may not like this guy, but he has a right to interview anyone he wants, and we have a right to hear what Putin says.'"

"You're not allowed to hear Putin's voice. Because why? There was no vote on it. No one asked me. I'm 54 years old. I've paid my taxes and followed the law," he continued.

It is unclear if the high-profile and sought-after interview by Carlson will take place now that he is in the country or if he is there for a different purpose.
