Only 48 hours after Senator Lindsey Graham made a visit to Kyiv to meet Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Russia’s Interior Ministry issued an arrest warrant for Graham.
The arrest warrant comes after a viral video of Graham saying, “Russians are dying” and it’s the “best money we’ve ever spent” took over Twitter.
Dmitry Peskov, who serves as the Kremlin’s spokesperson said, “It’s hard to imagine a greater shame for the country than having such senators.”
As reported by AP:
Russia’s Interior Ministry on Monday issued an arrest warrant for U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham following his comments related to the fighting in Ukraine.
In an edited video of his meeting on Friday with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy that was released by Zelenskyy’s office, Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, noted that “the Russians are dying” and described the U.S. military assistance to the country as “the best money we’ve ever spent.”
While Graham appeared to have made the remarks in different parts of the conversation, the short video by Ukraine’s presidential office put them next to each other, causing outrage in Russia.
Here’s the video that led to Graham’s arrest warrant being issued:
The head of the Russian Media company RT, Margarita Simonyan, was also furious with Graham and called for the Senator to be assassinated.
“It’s not even hard. We have his address,” she said.
It seems like the establishment GOP wants to avoid peace talks and instead prefers to see further bloodshed in the Russia-Ukraine war.
