The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia has added the name of US Senator Lindsey Graham to the list of ‘most wanted’ persons.
According to the French news agency AFP, the report on the Russian media referred to the database of the Ministry of Interior.
Lindsey Graham met with President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday, the president’s office released an edited video of the Volodymyr Zelensky and Lindsey Graham in which Lindsey Graham can be seen saying “the Russians are dying” while her Then in the next scene he says that the aid given (to Ukraine) consists of money that was spent in a better way.’
After the video came under intense criticism from Russia, Ukraine released the entire video of the meeting, in which it was possible to see and hear that the two remarks were not connected but separate.
Officials at the Russia Investigative Committee said Sunday they were opening a criminal investigation into Lindsey Graham’s remarks but did not say what crimes she would be charged with.
On the other hand, on Sunday, Lindsay Graham called the Russian criticism unnecessary, saying that he supported and praised the Ukrainians only to boost the morale of those who are resisting Russia and to whom Washington is providing aid.
The Republican senator from Southern California is known for having aggressive views on foreign policy.
He has also been very active in supporting Ukraine against Russia.
Russia has already banned dozens of US officials, including elected political leaders, and put their names on a list of those who cannot enter Russia.
However, it is unlikely that there has been a demand for the arrest of any American official on his behalf.
