In response to the Russian Interior Ministry issuing an arrest order for him on Monday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) informed Russian President Vladimir Putin that he would gladly turn himself in to the International Criminal Court "if you do."

Graham shared an article about the arrest warrant on Twitter and declared, "I will wear the arrest warrant issued by Putin's corrupt and immoral government as a Badge of Honour."

"It gives me great pleasure to know that my support for Ukraine has angered Putin's government. Till every Russian soldier is removed from Ukrainian soil, I will continue to stand with and support Ukraine's independence, Graham added.

Last but not least, I make the following proposal to my "friends" in Russia who wish to detain and prosecute me for describing the Putin government as war criminals:

If you do, I shall consent to the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court.

Bring in your strongest argument. Hello from The Hague!

Graham, a well-known hawk on Capitol Hill, visited Ukraine on Friday and spoke with President Volodymyr Zelensky, assuring him that the U.S. Congress, especially Republicans, will support him wholeheartedly. An edited video of their conversation quickly became popular online, appearing to show Graham claiming the Russians are "dying" before declaring that the United States' military assistance to Ukraine is "the best money we've ever spent."

It's difficult to think of a bigger disgrace for the nation than having such senators, said Putin's spokesperson Dmitry Peskov, in response to the video. Graham appears to have changed the order of his remarks.

The head editor of the Russian propaganda publication Russia Today, Margarita Simonyan, attacked Graham in even harsher words.

"If Lady Graham actually stated the money used to murder Russians was the finest money the US had spent, then... I hope that in our nation, Sudoplatov's kids, grandchildren, former students, or their offspring are still living. Not even difficult. We know his address," said Simonyan in a video that Russian media researcher Julie Davis found online.
