Russia Claims to Have Thwarted Ukrainian Assassination Attempt on Tucker Carlson

Russia claims to have apprehended a would-be assassin who had been sent to Moscow to kill Tucker Carlson by Ukraine.

According to Russian authorities, the plan was orchestrated by Ukrainian intelligence.

The Kremlin alleges that Ukraine was aiming to assassinate the high-profile media personality using an explosive device during his recent trip to Russia to interview President Vladimir Putin.

The suspect was identified by Russian counter-terrorism units as a native of Podolsk, Russia.

He was reportedly detained by Russian authorities before he could execute the plan.

Russian officials claim that the individual was acting on instructions from the State Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine.

The alleged assassin intended to plant the explosive under a car parked in the underground lot of the Four Seasons Hotel, where Carlson was staying.

The timeline of these events suggests the attack was planned to coincide with Carlson’s visit to Russia.

Carlson was in Russia to interview Putin from February 1 to February 8.


The responses on social media to these claims have been mixed, however.

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) stressed how crucial it is to shield journalists.

In a post on X, Greene wrote: “This is true and extremely terrifying.”

Russia alleges that the suspect was recruited by Ukrainian intelligence in November 2023.

He was then reportedly promised a $4,000 reward upon successful completion of the mission.

The validity of these claims remains unclear, however.

No independent verification of the claims exists.

While it’s likely that the suspect was attempting to kill Carlson, Russia has not provided any evidence to prove he was hired by Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Carlson has suggested that he was under surveillance by U.S. intelligence agencies, specifically the NSA, during his trip to Russia.

He alleged that this surveillance was part of an effort to undermine his interview with Putin, hinting at a broader narrative of media manipulation and espionage.

Nevertheless, without concrete evidence, the tale of the thwarted assassination attempt on Carlson in Moscow remains enveloped in a cloud of speculation.
