Russia Issues Arrest Warrant for GOP Senator

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) hit back against Russia after the country issued a warrant for his arrest. 

“Here’s an offer to my Russian ‘friends’ who want to arrest and try me for calling out the Putin regime as being war criminals: I will submit to jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court if you do,” Graham said Monday, referring to the ICC’s arrest warrant for Putin. “Come and make your best case. See you in The Hague!”

The remark comes after Russia’s Interior Ministry issued an arrest warrant for the South Carolina Republican following his meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Friday during which he said “the Russians are dying” and praised U.S. spending for the country as “the best money we’ve ever spent.” 

Graham’s comments were put together in an edited video Zelenskyy’s office released, though according to media reports, Graham likely made the remarks at different points in their meeting.

“It’s hard to imagine a greater shame for the country than having such senators,” Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in response.
