The reported appearance of former Fox News host Tucker Carlson in the Russian capital has sparked intense speculation over the purpose of the conservative media personality’s visit to Moscow.

Carlson arrived in Moscow on February 1, and was spotted attending the Bolshoi Theater in the capital, according to Russian outlet, Mash.

Questions quickly swirled over why the TV anchor would have traveled to Moscow, and whether he intended to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin during the visit.

“Democrats and their propagandists in the media are spasming at the prospect of Tucker Carlson interviewing Putin,” Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene wrote on social media platform, X.

“We have a free press in this country and its people like Tucker Carlson who we depend on to speak the truth!” she wrote.

Carlson said in late September 2023 that he had attempted to interview the Russian leader, but that the U.S. government had blocked the move.

“I tried to interview Vladimir Putin, and the U.S. government stopped me,” Carlson told Swiss magazine, Die Weltwoche.
