Arrest Warrant Issued For Lindsey Graham
On Monday, the Interior Ministry of Russia issued an arrest warrant targeting Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, in response to his remarks concerning the conflict occurring in Ukraine.
According to Newsmax, in a video recording that was edited and released by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s office, Senator Lindsey Graham made remarks on Friday, stating that “the Russians are dying” and expressing his endorsement of the U.S. military aid provided to Ukraine as “an excellent investment.”
The compilation video released by Ukraine’s presidential office juxtaposed various segments of Senator Lindsey Graham’s conversation, where he made separate remarks. This particular editing choice sparked outrage within Russia.
On Sunday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov expressed his viewpoint, stating that “it’s hard to imagine a greater shame for the country than having such senators.”
Following the actions taken by the Investigative Committee, Russia’s primary criminal investigation agency, to initiate a criminal investigation against Senator Lindsey Graham, the Interior Ministry proceeded to issue an official arrest warrant for him. This development was documented in the Interior Ministry’s record of wanted criminal suspects on Monday.
