(TruthAndLiberty.com) – Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson dismissed the allegations that he is pro-Putin following a recent trip to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. 

Carlson referred to his interview with Putin, which has widely been assumed to have been an attempt by the Russian President to win over the Western audience, arguing that it had not made him support Putin, nor that he has ever supported him. 

During an appearance on Glenn Beck’s BlazeTV program, Carlson argued that he was not pro-Putin but even if he had been that would have also been okay. He argued that as an adult American citizen, he had the right to any opinions he wanted to have, including who he liked and disliked. 

Last week, Carlson published the over two-hour conversation he had with the Russian President, where Putin spread propaganda regarding the war in Ukraine, while also attacking other Western nations, including the United States and their leaders.

Other clips from his trip to Russia included video clips of him and his team using Russian public transportation, going to grocery stores, and praising the economy and infrastructure of the country. 

Only days after the release of Carlson’s interview with Putin it was announced by the Russian government that Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who had previously been detained, had died in a penal colony. President Biden along with other leaders was quick to place the blame for the death on Putin. 

Carlson also released a statement following the announcement arguing that “no decent person would defend,” the actions taken by Putin.
