Volodymyr Zelensky calls “bulls—” in Putin's interview with Tucker Carlson

With the second anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine on Saturday, Fox News' Bret Baier sat down with Volodymyr Zelensky for an interview on the front lines.

The fate of the US aid package, now stalled in the House of Representatives, was the focus of the interview, but Baer also spoke about former Fox News host Tucker Carlson's recent meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Baer asked Zelensky: “My former colleague Tucker Carlson recently traveled to Moscow and sat down for an interview with Vladimir Putin. Did you happen to see that or cover it?”

Ukrainian The leader replied“I heard some messages in the media, and so did my advisor friends,” they said. “So I don’t have to do that — I don’t have time to hear more than two hours of nonsense about us, about the world, about the United States, about our relations, and this interview with a murderer. So I got On some of what was there briefly.

Carlson hosted the network's most-watched prime-time program until its cancellation last April. He has since launched his own website, but Putin's full interview was posted for free on X/Twitter. The interview was widely criticized for not presenting a challenge to Putin, but Carlson criticized US support for Ukraine.

The interview was Zelensky's first on the front lines of the war with Russia, in what Baer described as a 700-mile journey through Ukraine. He added that the interview took place in the town of Kubyansk, about a mile and a half away from the Russian forces.

Zelensky told Baer that without US help, “we will have more and more of these heroic heroes who will be in hospitals, because if you do not have a real defense shield and some similarly powerful artillery with missiles, of course, people will lose.”

Zelensky also invited former President Donald Trump to visit the front lines. “His eyes and ears will tell him what's going on,” he said.

He added: “After that, he will change his mind and see that there are no two sides to this war.” “There is only one enemy, and that is Putin’s position.”

Zelensky also denied criticism, largely coming from the right, that he had annulled the presidential election. “During the war, the law said you can't have elections, and that's it. It's not me, it's not my new law. It's Ukraine's law that has been there from the beginning.”

He also described as “nonsense” criticism that he is so determined to remain in power that he refuses to negotiate an end to the war.
