South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham described his arrest warrant from the Russian government as a "badge of honor."

Russia’s Interior Ministry issued the arrest warrant for Graham after he said U.S. military assistance to Ukraine was the "best money we ever spent."

His comments were made after his meeting on Friday with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

In response to the arrest warrant from Russia, Graham said he will continue to stand with Ukraine.

"To know that my commitment to Ukraine has drawn the ire of Putin’s regime brings me immense joy. I will continue to stand with and for Ukraine’s freedom until every Russian soldier is expelled from Ukrainian territory," Graham tweeted.

"I will wear the arrest warrant issued by Putin’s corrupt and immoral government as a Badge of Honor," he also wrote on Twitter.
