Russia Announces Possible Criminal Prosecution Against Senator Lindsey Graham


WARNING:  TASS is a Russian Government News Service

MOSCOW, March 5. /TASS/. On Saturday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov presented US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan with a note of protest in connection with provocative statements by US Senator Lindsey Graham about Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“John Sullivan was told that such an attack is qualified by the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation as an encroachment on the life of a statesman and entails grave consequences, including criminal prosecution,” the Russian diplomatic service said in a statement.

Lindsey Graham’s call for the assassination of the Russian president is terrorist, Washington’s failure to take action against the senator will have a further devastating effect on his relations with the Russian Federation, the Foreign Ministry said.

“It was emphasized that this is precisely a public, terrorist in essence, call, which is absolutely unacceptable for a high-ranking elected official, in connection with which the failure of the US administration to take specific measures that leave no room for ambiguity will have a further devastating impact on the already deplorable state of Russian-American relations,” the document says.

  1. It’s not only Lindsey Graham but Boris Johnson is also calling for Putin’s head. Add Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson to that list as well, although Carlson was very cagey in his call. The State Department is very silent on this issue, maybe it’s a case of silent means consent.

  2. Only in South Carolina. Well, actually, just about any state now. Maybe we can get the Mafia to do the job on Vlad. Just like Fidel. Right.
