Tucker Carlson, a conservative television presenter, has now reportedly debuted his own program on a Russian state television channel.

According to Rossiskya Gazyeta, the inaugural episode of Tucker, the program hosted by the former Fox News anchor, is now accessible online.

The paper stated that the program is a component of a collaborative endeavor with Carlson TV, in which he will interview politicians and figures who hold “alternative perspectives to the mainstream.”

Carlson conducted an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin in February.

A decision which was met with criticism by many liberal commentators, who saw the event as Carlson acting as a potential advocate for the Russian leader.
