Rep. Ruben Gallego hits back at Russian politician who threatened him with kidnapping

By Tara Kavaler | Arizona Republic

Rep. Ruben Gallego reacted defiantly Wednesday after a Russian statesman threatened him with kidnapping on television.

“F— around and find out,” Gallego, D-Ariz., tweeted, including an American flag emoji with his comment.

Gallego shared in a CNN interview his experience from a recent trip to Ukraine.

Gallego, who sits on the House Armed Services Committee, urged President Joe Biden to take an even tougher stance against Russian President Vladimir Putin. This, he argued, was needed to deter Moscow from invading the neighboring country. That should include measures such as expanding the scope of blocking Russian assets, he said.

On Wednesday, according to a story first reported by the Daily Beast, Aleksei Zhuravlyov, a member of the Russian legislature, appeared on the Kremlin-version of 60 Minutes, which broadcast some of Gallego’s remarks from the weekend.
