Following the publication of a video showing Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) praising American expenditure on the death of Russians in Ukraine, Russia issued a warrant on Monday calling for his arrest.
Graham was put to the Russian Interior Ministry’s wanted list after senior Russian investigator Alexander Bastrykin initiated criminal proceedings.
A video showing Graham meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenksy last week was published by the country’s presidential administration.
Graham, a fervent opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin, enjoyed being sought in Russia despite any misunderstandings.
“I will wear the arrest warrant issued by Putin’s corrupt and immoral government as a Badge of Honor. To know that my commitment to Ukraine has drawn the ire of Putin’s regime brings me immense joy. I will continue to stand with and for Ukraine’s freedom until every Russian soldier is expelled from Ukrainian territory.” The senator said.
