Kremlin declines comment on alleged visit of Tucker Carlson to Russian presidential administration

Turning Point Action Conference in Florida

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin, asked on Tuesday whether U.S. journalist Tucker Carlson had visited the Russian presidential administration in Moscow this week, declined to comment.

Russian media showed pictures of Carlson at several spots around Moscow on Monday during a visit which has fuelled speculation that the former Fox News host may become the first Western journalist to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin during the war in Ukraine.

When asked if Carlson had visited the Russian administration building in central Moscow, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters:

"I am not commenting in any way on the movements of an American journalist."
