Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky for recently bragging about having the “attention” and “cooperation” of international financial titans even as the U.S. banking industry struggles to remain solvent.
Carlson questioned why corporate media has failed to be critical of financial institutions, even as the U.S. banking system is under its greatest strain since the financial crisis of 2008.
“As banks are collapsing, no one in media is anxious to criticize banks. Almost no matter what they do, it doesn’t matter what they do. Even if they were to, just pulling this out of thin air, openly profiteer from a war in Eastern Europe that’s killing hundreds of thousands of people,” Carlson said.
“Oh, it turns out they are,” he added. “And we know that because Zelensky, the President of Ukraine, and a very close friend of banks and BlackRock, is bragging about it.”
The Fox News host then played a clip of Zelensky boasting his relationship with institutions like BlackRock, JP Morgan, and Goldman Sach

JP Morgan, the nation’s largest bank, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy with the eye on attracting private capital for a new investment fund to rebuild Ukraine’s infrastructure that has been destroyed in its war with Russia, FOX Business has learned.
JP Morgan bankers spent most of last week meeting with Zelensky and his senior staff where they discussed the creation of a fund seeded with $20 billion to $30 billion in private capital, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter.
Other ideas discussed with the Ukrainian president were the creation of a bank administered by Wall Street firms that would make investments in oil refineries, roads, bridges and other pieces of economic infrastructure destroyed in Vladimir Putin’s year-long campaign to annex the country and rebuild the old Soviet Union, these people add.
JP Morgan bankers were on the ground in Kyiv and other cities, dodging bombs, and witnessing firsthand how the war has crippled the country’s economy. After a series of meetings with various ministers, they met directly with Zelensky on Friday night. As a gesture of goodwill on the eve of Sunday’s Super Bowl, the bankers also presented Zelensky with a New England Patriots jersey with the number “91,” to signify the year Ukraine gained independence from the old Soviet Union, these people say.
