Assassination Attempt on Tucker Carlson Was Thwarted in Moscow, Russia Claims

Allegations have surfaced from Russia claiming that an assassination attempt on American journalist Tucker Carlson was thwarted in Moscow. According to Russian authorities, the plan was orchestrated by Ukrainian intelligence aiming to eliminate the high-profile media personality using an explosive device.

The supposed target was Carlson, who recently interviewed Russian President Vladimir Putin. The suspect, identified as a native of Podolsk, was reportedly detained by Russian counter-terrorism units before he could execute the plan.

Russian officials claim that the individual was acting on instructions from the State Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine and intended to plant the explosive under a car parked in the underground lot of the Four Seasons Hotel, where Carlson was staying.

The timeline of these events suggests the attack was planned to coincide with Carlson’s visit to Russia from February 1 to February 8.

The responses to these claims have been mixed, with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) stressing how crucial it is to shield journalists, writing on X, “This is true and extremely terrifying.”

The narrative provided by Russian sources claim the suspect was recruited by Ukrainian intelligence in November 2023, with promises of a $4,000 reward upon successful completion of the mission. The validity of these claims remains unclear, with no independent verification available at this time.

It’s important to note the speculative nature of this information, particularly given the complex web of international relations and propaganda that often characterizes reports emerging from conflict zones or areas of geopolitical tension.

The motivations behind such claims, whether rooted in truth or propaganda, highlight the ongoing complexities of international relations and the role of media in shaping public perception.

Carlson, for his part, has suggested that he was under surveillance by US intelligence agencies, specifically the NSA, during his time in Russia. He alleged that this surveillance was part of an effort to undermine his interview with Putin, hinting at a broader narrative of media manipulation and espionage.

Yet, without concrete evidence, the tale of the thwarted assassination attempt on Tucker Carlson in Moscow remains enveloped in a cloud of speculation.

    How convenient, for Russia to blame Ukraine at this time. If anyone had a motive, it would be Russia. Nothing to lose, and 2 things to gain. 1). Successful smear campaign against the Ukraine. 2). Unabashed, self-promotion for Russia.
    There are more players who want to spin Tuckers’ visit into advantageous circumstances for them, be it media coverage, etc. including our own DOJ/Gestapo.
