 Two Russian men pretend to be the Minister of Defense of the Territory and call US lawmakers to talk about sanctions.


BEIJING, Oct. 11, Xinhua (CNN) -- Russian prank enthusiasts Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexei Stogliarov, posing as Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, made a spoof phone call to US Republican Senator Lindsay Graham and chatted with him about sanctions against Turkey, according to the Russian Satellite Network on Oct. 11.

Weve managed to prevent a lot of attempts to play tricks on Graham and his office, but this time, theyve managed to find a gap, said Kevin bishop, Grahams spokesman.

According to the content of the call, Graham expressed his preference for Turkey on the Kurdish issue, describing the Kurds as a threat. But Graham is also one of the sponsors of a bill to sanction Turkeys leadership.

Graham also made it clear that members of Congress from both parties were angry at Ankaras actions and were ready to support sanctions. So he believes that even if the White House owners vote no, they can easily get enough votes to pass the sanctions bill.
