American journalist Gonzalo Lira died in a Ukrainian prison after being imprisoned for criticizing the Zelensky and Biden governments.

Lira, who regularly posted reports and opinions about the war with Russia and the nature of the Ukrainian government, was initially arrested and later tried to flee the country, but was arrested again.

“Gonzalo Lira was an American citizen, but the Biden administration clearly supported his imprisonment and torture. Several weeks ago we spoke to his father, who predicted his son would be killed,” Tucker Carlson wrote. (Trending: Bombshell UFO Footage Released To The Public)

“In the West, all of the propaganda has said that, you know, Zelenskyy’s a hero, a Winston Churchill figure, and the Kyiv regime are just angels and stuff like that. No, they’re bloodthirsty murderers, the Kyiv regime. I’m telling you right now,” Lira said.

“I will definitely be sent to a prison labor camp, where I will most certainly die,” he said.

“The Biden State Department is uninterested in the fate of this American citizen. In fact, of course, they support his imprisonment,” Carlson said.

Despite efforts from individuals like Tucker Carlson and Elon Musk to raise awareness of his situation, the U.S. government showed indifference, with the State Department providing evasive responses and a generic statement following Lira’s death.

“We obviously support the exercise of freedom of speech anywhere in the world, and I’ll leave it at that,” State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said.

“EXCLUSIVE: The State Department just responded to my request for comment regarding Gonzalo Lira’s death. You’ll notice the State Department doesn’t say Gonzalo Lira’s name. This appears to be a generic statement,” journalist Breanna Morello said.

“They also won’t address my questions which were: During Lira’s detainment, did the State Department ever reach out to the Ukrainian government on Gonzalo Lira’s behalf? If so, how many times and when? Is the State Department in touch with Gonzalo Lira‘s family?” she added.

The Biden administration’s lack of reaction and attempts to suppress free speech were evident throughout the ordeal.
