U.S. Senator John McCain believes that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is nothing more than a propagandist for Russian President Vladimir Putin, and he has no place in the Oval Office of the White House.
He noted that U.S. President Donald Trump, meeting with Lavrov, should understand that he is “nothing but a propagandist” of Putin.
“I know that Mr. Lavrov is a stooge of a thug and a murderer who used Russian precision weapons to bomb hospitals in Aleppo, who violates human rights, invades Ukraine and occupies the Crimea… He has no business in the Oval Office,” McCain said.
Donald Trump met with the Russian minister of Foreign Affairs on May 10th. According to the press service of the White House, Trump expressed his intention to improve relations with Russia. Sergei Lavrov called the staff of the Trump administration “people of action.”
