Mainstream media is already attacking Tucker Carlson and Vladimir Putin's interview that discussed the conflict in Ukraine and America's war propaganda.

In the 2-hour video, Putin gives a history of Russia and Ukraine, discusses the NATO expansion, Bill Clinton's refusal to allow Russia into NATO, the conflict in Ukraine, Russia's relationship with China and America's media monopoly, and more. Toward the end, Putin briefly talks about Elon Musk, AI, and genetic engineering.

Here are some of his most interesting responses.

The Nazi Ideology Is Alive

Surprisingly, President Putin believes that Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy applauds Hitler.

Vladimir Putin: “You say Hitler has been dead for so many years, 80 years. But, his example lives on. The people who exterminate the Jews, Russians or poles are alive. And the president, the current president of today's Ukraine, applauds him in the Canadian Parliament, gives a standing ovation. Can we say that we have completely uprooted this ideology? If what we see is happening today, that is what De-nazification is in our understanding. We have to get rid of those people who maintain this concept and support this practice and try to preserve it. That is what De-nazification is. That is what we mean.”

U.S. & Media

Are we surprised that our country controls narratives on a global scale? When Tucker asked President Putin if he had any evidence that NATO, the U.S., and the CIA played a role in the explosion of Nord Stream (a major gas pipeline between Russia and Germany); he revealed that the U.S. controls the world's media.

Vladimir Putin: "In the war of propaganda, it is very difficult to defeat the United States because the United States controls all the world's media and many European media. The ultimate beneficiary of the biggest European media are American financial institutions. Don't you know that? So it is possible to get involved in this work, but it is cost prohibitive, so to speak. We can simply shine the spotlight on our sources of information and we will not achieve results. It is clear to the whole world what happened then. Even American analysts talk about it directly. It's true."

Putin Gets Asked About “Forces That Are Not Human”

Tucker asked President Putin if he believed that spiritual warfare was taking place. "So do you see the supernatural at work as you look out across what's happening in the world now? Do you see God at work? Do you ever think to yourself, these are forces that are not human?" he asked. Putin believes that what we're witnessing is natural, that is, the rise and fall of nations and civilizations.

Vladimir Putin: "No, to be honest. I don't think so. My opinion is that the development of the world community is in accordance with inherent laws, and those laws are what they are. It's always been this way in the history of mankind. Some nations and countries rose, became stronger and more numerous and then left the international stage, losing the status they had accustomed to. There's probably no need for me to give examples, but we could start with Genghis Khan and horde conquers, the Golden Horde and then end with the Roman Empire. It seems that there has never been anything like the Roman Empire in the history of mankind. Nevertheless, the potential of the barbarians gradually grew, as did their population. In general, the barbarians were getting stronger and begun to develop economically, as we would say today. This eventually led to the collapse of the Roman Empire and the regime imposed by the Romans. However, it took five centuries for the Roman Empire to fall apart. The difference with what is happening now is that all the processes of change are happening had been much faster paced than in Roman times."

AI and Elon Musk

Tucker asked President Putin when he thinks the "AI empire" will begin. Putin can't answer this, of course, but adds how humanity is facing threats due to genetic researchers. He thinks that it's possible for "specialized human beings" to exist. Additionally, the Russian politician believes that there is no stopping Elon Musk and that mankind must consider the potential consequences of the development of genetics and AI.

Vladimir Putin: "You're asking increasingly more complicated questions. To answer them you need to be an expert in big numbers, big data and AI. Mankind is currently facing many threats due to the genetic researchers, it is now possible to create this superhuman. A specialized human being. A genetically engineered athlete, scientist, military man. There are reports that Elon Musk has already had the chip implanted in the human brain in the USA."

"What do you think of that?" Tucker inquired.

Vladimir Putin: "I think there's no stopping Elon Musk. He will do as he sees fit. Nevertheless, you'll need to find some common ground with him. Search for ways to persuade him. I think he's a smart person. I truly believe he is. So you'll need to reach an agreement with him because this process needs to be formalized and subjected to certain rules. Humanity has to consider what is going to happen due to the newest development in genetics or in AI? One can make an approximate prediction of what will happen. Once mankind felt an existential threat coming from nuclear weapons. All nuclear nations begun to come to terms with one another, since they realized the negligent use of nuclear weaponry could drive humanity to extinction. It is impossible to stop research in genetics or AI today, just as it was impossible to stop the use of gunpowder back in the day. But as soon as we realize that the threat comes from unbridled and uncontrolled development of AI or genetics or any other field, the time will come to reach an international agreement on how to regulate these things."

Putin Suggests Ukraine Wants To Dismantle Ukrainian Orthodox Church

The interview finishes with Carlson thanking Vladimir Putin for his time and Putin expressing his hope for the resolution of certain issues, particularly the situation involving the Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich, who is held in a Russian prison. Putin emphasizes that they are willing to negotiate and solve the issue, but terms are being discussed via special services channels. They talk more about NATO, and Putin adds that Ukrainian officials are attempting to dismantle the Ukranian Orthodox church.

"Everyone in the West thinks that the Russian people have been split by hostilities forever, and now they will be reunited. The unity is still there," Putin said. "Why are the Ukrainian authorities dismantling the Ukrainian Orthodox Church? Because it brings together not only the territory. It brings together our souls. No one will be able to separate the soul. Shall we end here, or is there anything else?"

Tucker ends with, "Thank you, Mr. President."
