Tucker Carlson Claims Zelenskyy Interview, Ukrainian Spokesman Denies Announcement

Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson announced via Twitter on Wednesday that he had finally secured an interview with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy after two years of attempts. Carlson emphasized that the purpose of the interview was to provide Americans with crucial information about the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

However, a spokesman for Zelenskyy’s office quickly refuted the claim, stating, “The President of Ukraine has a completely different schedule, and Tucker Carlson is not on it.” This statement directly contradicts Carlson’s tweet and casts doubt on the likelihood of the interview taking place.

Carlson’s previous interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin in February had already stirred significant controversy. Critics accused him of echoing Kremlin propaganda, and rumors circulated that Ukrainian supporters had added him to an “enemies list” maintained by a State Department-linked NGO.

Despite the backlash, Carlson maintained his stance, expressing his hope to shed light on the complexities of the conflict that has significantly impacted Ukraine and its global standing. His aim, he said, was to provide much-needed information that deviates from the official U.S. and Ukrainian narratives.

The potential interview with Zelenskyy comes amid criticisms of the Ukrainian president for suspending elections and extending his term, as well as cracking down on Orthodox Churches, which he claims are collaborating with Moscow. Carlson suggested that if Zelenskyy has confidence in his actions and the legitimacy of his cause, he should have no issues defending them in an interview.

As the situation unfolds, the public remains skeptical about whether this high-profile interview will take place, given the Ukrainian government’s explicit denial and the contentious nature of Carlson’s recent reporting.
