Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, mentioned that “the Russians are dying” in an edited video of his meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made public by Zelenskyy’s office.
He also called the U.S. military aid to the nation “the best money we’ve ever spent.”
Although Graham has made the comments at several points in the dialogue, the brief video released by the presidential office of Ukraine showed them next to each other, which infuriated Russia.
“It’s difficult to think of a worse humiliation for the nation than having such senators,” said Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov in a statement on Sunday.
According to the Interior Ministry’s official list of wanted criminal suspects published on Monday, the Investigative Committee, the nation’s top criminal investigation agency, decided to begin a criminal investigation into Graham.
The Interior Ministry then issued a warrant for his arrest.
