US Senator Calls for Putin’s Assassination

A US senator has called on someone in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s inner circle to assassinate him.

Lindsey Graham said the only way Russia’s invasion of Ukraine ends is “for somebody in Russia to take this guy out”.

In a statement on Twitter, the outspoken Republican asks if the Russian president has a “Brutus” who can take out Mr Putin and end the war.

His comments have outraged the Russian ambassador to the US.

Mr Graham, who represents South Carolina, tweeted: “You would be doing your country – and the world – a great service.

“Is there a Brutus in Russia? Is there a more successful Colonel Stauffenberg in the Russian military?”

Brutus was a Roman politician who assassinated Julius Caesar, while German army Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg is best-known for trying to kill Adolf Hitler in 1944.

Anatoly Antonov, Russia’s ambassador to the US, described his statement as “unacceptable and outrageous”.

He said the degree of “Russophobia and hatred in the US towards Russia was off the charts.

“It’s unbelievable that a country’s senator preaching his moral values as a ‘guiding star’ to all mankind could afford a call on terrorism as a way to achieve Washington’s goals on the international arena.”

US President Joe Biden has condemned the Russian invasion and imposed sanctions on politicians including Mr Putin himself. He says the US will defend Nato countries but has ruled out sending troops to Ukraine.

But Senator Graham’s comments also riled Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

“Of course, these days not everyone is managing to preserve a sober mind, I would even say a sound mind,” he said, calling for national unity from Russians.

  1. @ James I agree with you to a level…these are blonde hair, blue eye people fighting each other and nither one cares about or for Black People to be in their country or presence,case and point check out the y-tube videos to and IG to see how Black folks are been treated over there….some of whom have lived there for years got the wake up call of their lives when this war broke out, they found out what that they are truly worth in the eyes of these people. Even the Indians who always believed they are superior to blacks got a serious beating over there so bad the Indian Government had to come to their rescue fast. When there was no war the monies they were collecting from students was not an issue ” green and in God we trust”. You know they are mostly jews right ?…and Putin is not a Jew, the US media houses are run by Jews, and the US Congress are mostly Jews so figure the rest…I am quite sure I am not the only one singing don’t cry for me Argentina

  2. If we small Islanders don’t stay out of that dispute, we’ll have a political and an Economical Pie smashed in our face.

    • Fox: St. Lucia has already announced to the world where it stands, by condemning Russia’s action to root out the Nazis & CIA mercenaries (Academi, formerly called Blackwater) from Ukraine…because BEGGARS can’t be choosers (???).

      We’ve always had the political pie smashed in our face (fake independence) – the political musical chairs that has been enforced upon us every 5 years, by the duopoly (UWP & SLP) of political partisan grifters.

      On the economic front, we in the OECS took the dubious initiative of smashing the pie into our own faces, by pegging “our” currency to the US dollar, a long time ago (in our role of playing sucker fish to the US orc). If you haven’t paid attention to the inflationary trend over the last 2 years, you will have missed the reason for the Covid-19 scam – deflection from the failing Ponzi scheme. Now that Omicron has put a stop to that scam, the US has quickly pivoted to poking the Russian as an attempt to distract the masses from the impending economic collapse – the derivative grift representing US$610 trillions as of 2019 – and share its self-inflicted pain with the rest of the world.

      Russia & China have prepared themselves for this inevitability over the last 10 years and more. Russia is the preeminent autarky in the world – the kindergarten sanctions by the US are being scoffed at. China is the leading economic power in the world – they have been investing all the debt owed them by the US into the Belt and Road Initiative – and have immunized themselves against the US’ (and all their poodles’) collapse. The BRICS will (openly) dominate very soon!

  3. @James thank you! We in the west follow every shit these Americans vomit. Institutional Power will give every clown a trumpet. Meanwhile, Alaska sits right on the border!

  4. @James, you sure got that right; this is nothing but the continuation of the old fight, Nazis vs Communists:- extreme Right wing Vs far Left wingers internationally but mainly among white folks – black folks don’t have Atomic Power, no Jet Bombers, no war Ships. Subs, Armies, Navy no nothing, so stay out of that, and no U.N. speeches. At the end, all will suffer and the survivors will wish that they too had gone. Oh Lord, hear our voice, St. Lucia is calling you, help the poor-your own people.

    • Black people have armies to bro, check out Africa, but they mostly fight against other African nations…sad

  5. See what I’m talking about?

    Now that the 141 poodles lined up in the UN dog pound to take turns to sniff the arse of the American Bully; the red-necks feel emboldened to openly call for the assassination of democratically elected president of a nuclear super power!

    You will note that the US senator understands that his life is almost over; so he does not care if the world is destroyed in a nuclear holocaust!

  6. Before you black people start commenting, note that this is not our business. (Pro-Russian mayor of city in eastern Ukraine who welcomed Putin’s invasion is found shot dead in the street after being kidnapped from his home). This story is far more complex than we can imagine. It involves Nazis, backstabbing etc etc.
