Zelensky pans Tucker Carlson’s marathon Putin interview: ‘2 hours of bullsh–‘

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has slammed the softball interview between Tucker Carlson and Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling it a “two-hour bull game.”

Appearing from Ukraine on FOX News’ “Special Report” on Sunday, President Zelenskiy told host Bret Baier that he was briefed on the matter, but in the end, Prime Minister Karlsson called him to discuss the matter. He said he had little time to think about the Monday sit-in in the Kremlin. “He’s a murderer.”

“We don’t have time to listen to more than two hours of eloquence about us, about the world, about the United States, about our relations, and about this interview with the killer,” Zelenskiy told the anchors.

His comments come just days before the country marks two years under siege by Russian forces and less than a week after opposition leader Alexei Navalny, 47, died in a Russian prison under suspicious circumstances. It was announced in my house.

Navalny’s death prompted Western leaders, including President Biden, to openly accuse Putin of orchestrating the murder of his opponent, calling it further evidence of the Russian president’s “cruelty.” It attracted widespread condemnation.

During a rambling, unfocused interview, Putin became rough with Carlson, 54, and the former Fox News prime-time anchor rarely interrupted, as the 71-year-old continued to talk about 1,000 years of Russia. There was also a scene where he gave a monologue about the evolution of Ukraine.

President Putin himself took a gloomy view of Karlsson’s performance in the one-on-one, telling Russian media that he was “not completely satisfied with the interview.”

“To be honest, I thought he would behave aggressively and ask so-called pointed questions,” Putin said mockingly.
