“Come and make your best case. See you in The Hague!” he added.

The senator's office also released an additional statement on the matter:

“I will wear the arrest warrant issued by Putin's corrupt and immoral government as a Badge of Honor,” the senator said in a statement on Monday. “To know that my commitment to 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.”
