BREAKING: Tucker Carlson launches show ‘Tucker’ on Russian State TV

Following his widely viewed interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin months ago, news came Tuesday that Tucker Carlson launched show 'Tucker' a Russian state television channel for the first time.

According to Newsweek, "Carlson is presenting the program Tucker. The first episode and other clips from previous months are now available online, Russian state newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta reported."

The official X account for BRICS, the coalition between Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, shared in a post:

One user responded, "This man might single hand stop WW3".
An episode from Tucker, dated May 18, 2024, is already live on the website, where programs shown on Russian state channels can be viewed.

The website also reportedly hosts other clips from previous months of interviews that Carlson had conducted, according to Newsweek.

"Independent news outlet Astra said that the program features Russian-language dubbing of Carlson's American shows and is not original content for Russian viewers. In September 2023, Rossiya 24 aired a trailer for a show featuring Carlson without clarifying when it would be broadcast, the BBC reported."

Astra continued, "The TUCKER program, a joint project of (Russian state-owned channel) VGTRK and the Tucker Carlson Network YouTube channel, has now aired on the Russia 24 TV channel. The first episode is dedicated to ticks and Lyme disease."

With Tucker's worldwide popularity as a journalist, his Russian media introduction will play an interesting role in the dissemination of information leading up to the 2024 U.S. Presidential election.

It's worth noting that Ukrainian President Zelenskyy's term as President reportedly ended on Monday, May 20, 2024, according to FirstPost. What's next in the war between Russia and Ukraine? Time will tell.
