WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House is not advocating regime change in Russia, President Joe Biden’s spokesman said on Friday after a US senator pleaded with the Russians to assassinate President Vladimir Putin.

“We are not advocating the assassination of a foreign country’s leader or regime change. That is not United States policy,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, urged someone in Russia to “take that guy down,” citing Putin.
