Russian President Vladimir Putin was interviewed by former Fox News host Tucker Carlson

Russian President Vladimir Putin's highly awaited interview with conservative US media figure Tucker Carlson has been broadcasted.

Recorded on Tuesday, the interview was uploaded on Mr. Carlson's website and X, formerly Twitter.

This notable conversation signifies the first instance the Russian leader has consented to an interview with a Western media platform since commencing his full-scale invasion of Ukraine nearly two years ago, amidst ongoing hostilities in the country.

Mr. Carlson introduced the interview against the backdrop of a snowy Kremlin, noting it had been recorded two days earlier.

Putin refuted assertions of territorial ambitions across Europe and stated that Russian troops would only intervene in neighboring nations if provoked.

Spanning two hours, the interview delved into discussions on the history of Eastern Europe and Russia, with Putin emphasizing his government's dialogue with the United States, insisting that a peaceful resolution to the conflict would hinge on Washington ceasing arms supplies to Ukraine.

The Kremlin remarked that Putin agreed to engage with Carlson due to his portrayal of a less biased perspective on the Ukrainian conflict.
