Senator Lindsay Graham urges somebody in Russia to do the world a ‘great service’
Russian citizens have been warned by a Republican Senator to be in complete darkness and isolation until one of them rises up. “take this guy out” – apparently referring to Russia’s President Vladimir Putin. Graham’s tirade came following news of a fire at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, which Ukraine blamed on a “Russian shelling.”
“Is there a Brutus in Russia? Is there a more successful Colonel Stauffenberg in the Russian military?”The Sen. Lindsay Graham tweets on Thursday night
“Unless you want to live in darkness for the rest of your life, be isolated from the rest of the world in abject poverty, and live in darkness you need to step up to the plate,”He concluded.
This is the only way to end it.
Does Russia have a Brutus? Are there any more accomplished Colonel Stauffenbergs in Russia’s military? This is the only way it can end. Your country and the entire world would benefit.

Graham was unable to mention Putin directly or describe how the Russian people should be treated. “take him out,”His historical parallels are hard to interpret. Marcus Junius Brutus was a Roman politician who betrayed and assassinated Julius Caesar, immortalized in the emperor’s dying words: “You too, Brutus?” Claus von Stauffenberg, meanwhile, was a German army officer famous for his failed assassination attempt on Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.
The fire broke out Thursday night at the building that is near Zaporozhskaya Nuclear energy Plant. Ukrainian authorities were accused of bringing in Russian soldiers. “shelling”The nuclear facility.
Moscow told the international nuclear authority on Tuesday that Russian forces had secured territory near the plant, and that it was now operating as normal. Russian authorities are yet to reply to this latest accusation.
