Republican senator calls for Putin's 'Brutus'
Referring to one of the assassins of Julius Caesar, Graham asked if there was a Brutus in Russia to assassinate Putin.
After Putin's ongoing special military operation in Ukraine, a US Republican senator has suggested that "somebody in Russia" assassinate the Russian President.
The senator blatantly declared that the only people who can resolve this crisis are the Russians themselves.
During a TV interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Lindsey Graham expressed that the solution to the Ukraine crisis is simple. Someone in Russia should "step up to the plate... and take this guy out."
Referring to one of the assassins of Julius Caesar, Graham asked if there was a "Brutus" in Russia to assassinate Putin.
Graham is a former presidential candidate, and he reportedly asked if the Russian military had "a more successful Colonel Stauffenberg," referring to the German commander whose bomb failed to kill Adolf Hitler in 1944, adding that those responsible would be "doing the world a great service."
The Senator, who was vocally pro-Donald Trump, had earlier in the day proposed a resolution criticizing the Russian President and his military leaders for committing "war crimes" and "crimes against humanity," as per his allegations.
Days ago, Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN, Vassily Nebenzia, addressed the overwhelming spread of disinformation on media outlets regarding the situation in Ukraine, citing how the Ukrainian army is using civilians as human shields, thus violating international humanitarian law which Western politicians have been ignoring.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, Ukrainian militants have been positioning artillery in residential areas, which is a technique notorious to US military and intelligence in order to target civilians more and result in casualties. “These methods are actively used by terrorists supervised by the CIA in the Middle East and other countries," the Ministry said.
