Poland debunks ten of Vladimir Putin’s lies from his interview with Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson’s recent two-hour-long interview with Vladimir Putin has triggered a wave of comments in the world media. The Polish government has corrected ten lies the Russian president told during his interview with the American journalist last Thursday. 

Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs published a list of ten lies that could be found in the arrogant and revisionist history lesson Putin gave his ill-prepared interlocutor. These include Poland’s alleged collaboration with Hitler, Russia’s alleged defensive stance in the context of the ongoing war with Ukraine, and several manipulations about the history of Central and Eastern Europe. 

With all due respect, Carlson failed to correct Putin on numerous occasions and even behaved in a somewhat giggly way from time to time. These are some of the reasons that led Poland’s speaker of Parliament Szymon Hołownia to describe Tucker Carlson as a “useful idiot”.

Not only did Putin reiterate his claims that Poland is responsible for the outbreak of WWII, but the former head of the KGB also emphasised the need to “denazify” modern-day Ukraine. 

Although Carlson tried to dig deeper in Putin’s historical shortcomings, he failed to ask one single question concerning the Hitler-Stalin Pact. The pact included a secret protocol dividing Eastern Europe into spheres of influence, giving Nazi Germany dominance over Western Poland and the Soviets control over Eastern Poland, the Baltic States, Finland, and parts of Romania. This division facilitated the eventual invasion and occupation of Poland by both parties, effectively triggering World War II.
