Earlier, McCain in the transfer of Fox News Sunday, commenting on the recent meeting of Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. President Donald trump said that the Russian Minister had «nothing to do in the oval office». Us Senator also said Lavrov «a propagandist and a henchman» of President Vladimir Putin.

«This position is well-known for his obsessive hatred of our country. Probably a member of the legislature of the United States.
