A report has surfaced that is leaving fans of popular American journalist Tucker Carlson, who recently traveled to Moscow to interview Vladimir Putin, stunned: He was targeted by a plot to assassinate him with a bomb.

A new report published by The Gateway Pundit explains, "A young man has reportedly just been arrested in Moscow in connection with an attempted assassination of Tucker Carlson. According to reporter Simon Ateba, the man who has been arrested was reportedly being paid by Ukrainian intelligence to plant an explosive device in a vehicle used by Tucker while he was there to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin."

The report credited the "Russian Counter-Terrorism Unit" for halting the scheme.

The report said a Moscow man was arrested and accused of accepting a promise of payment, $4,000, from Ukrainian intelligence to blow up a car apparently being used by Carlson.

The suspect, in a statement, declared, "In November 2023, I was recruited by the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. I was trained in working with special communications, collecting, and detonating explosive devices. On January 31, I received a task from the curator to pick up an explosive device from a hiding place and use it to blow up a car."

He said he was unaware of the target, but learned later it was Carlson.

The report has not been corroborated.

But, the report said, a video shows Vasiliev Pyotr Alexeieovich, 35, making the claims.

The plot allegedly failed because the alleged bomber was arrested during preparations.
