Putin Speaks Out in Interview, Deepens Ties with China
Putin recently sat down for an interview with Tucker Carlson, sharing his side of the Russia-Ukraine war. This comes as Moscow and Beijing have been increasing trade, rejecting the “US policy of interfering in the internal affairs of other states.”
From The Gateway Pundit. As The Gateway Pundit reported earlier this week, former Fox News host Tucker Carlson was spotted in Moscow, amidst swirling speculation that he was in Russia to interview President Vladimir Putin. Later, Tucker himself has confirmed the interview is happening and is explaining why he decided to go forward.
Tucker acknowledged the risks of meeting with such a high-profile leader. But he listed a few reasons why he decided to carry forward.
Tucker revealed the first purpose for conducting the interview is because it is the sworn duty of the press to inform the public.
Tucker goes on to elaborate on how big of a disaster the Ukraine War is and notes that it has wholly upended global and military trade alliances. He went on to bash the American networks for lying to their viewers about the actual state of the conflict. …
“Almost three years ago, the Biden administration illegally spied on our text messages and then leaked the contents to their servants in the news media. They did this in order to stop a Putin interview that we were planning last month. We’re pretty certain they did exactly the same thing once again. But this time, we came to Moscow anyway. We are not here because we love Vladimir Putin. We are here because we love the United States and we wanted to remain prosperous and free,” Tucker said.
“We are not encouraging you to agree with what Putin may say in this interview, but we are urging you to watch it. You should know as much as you can, and then, like a free citizen and not a slave, you can decide for yourself,” Tucker concluded. …

From Al Jazeera. Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping have rejected what they call US interference in the affairs of other countries, the Kremlin has said.
During an hour-long phone call on Thursday, Xi and Putin denounced the “US policy of interfering in the internal affairs of other states”, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov told journalists.
The two leaders spoke about creating a “multipolar, fairer world order” in the face of US-led efforts to contain both of Washington’s biggest adversaries, he said. …
The West has viewed Moscow and Beijing, both of whom are seeking to expand their global influence, with increased anxiety over the past two years as they ramp up ties in trade and defence. …
Moscow and Beijing have also increasingly carried out trade in roubles and yuan as they move to phase out trade in US dollars. …
Ukraine and Taiwan
Putin and Xi also discussed the situation in Ukraine and conflict resolution in the Middle East and see eye to eye on those conflicts, Ushakov said, without elaborating. …
China has itself been criticised, notably by the US, over a number of thorny issues, including its behaviour towards self-ruled democratic Taiwan, which Beijing claims as its territory.
“In discussing the situation in the Asia-Pacific region, the Russian President reaffirmed his principled position on the Taiwan issue, which is to support the ‘one China’ policy,” the Kremlin said in its statement about the call. …
