Putin’s interview with Tucker Carlson underscored the Russian leader’s “tactical confidence” in his forces at a time when his adversaries are at a dangerous moment, The New York Times reported. Ukraine, for example, is having trouble on the battlefield and getting U.S. aid, while Russia-friendly politicians are gaining ground on both sides of the Atlantic, the article said.
In a two-hour interview with Tucker Carlson, Russian President Vladimir Putin called on the United States to negotiate on Ukraine and “more straightforwardly than usual” described how he believes the Ukrainian conflict will end – not with a military victory, but with a deal with the West, The New York Times said.
According to the newspaper, Putin’s participation in the interview emphasized his “tactical confidence” at a time when his opponents are at a dangerous moment.
As the publication explains, Ukraine is currently struggling on the battlefield, with further military aid to Kiev stalled in the US Congress. At the same time, Kremlin-friendly politicians are gaining ground on both sides of the Atlantic.
“Chief among these politicians is former (US) President Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s main candidate, whom Carlson often praises,” the article said.
