John McCain to attack Putin with op-ed in Russian paper

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. speaks with reporters outside the White House in Washington, Monday, Sept. 2, 2013, following a closed-door meeting with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. and President Barack Obama to discuss the situation with Syria. President Barack Obama, working to persuade skeptical lawmakers to endorse a U.S. military intervention in civil war-wracked Syria, hosted the two leading Capitol Hill foreign policy hawks for talks and directed his national security team to testify before Congress in a determined effort to sell his plan for limited missile strikes against Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime.(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

It's not as significant as if, say, President Obama were to do it, but Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is set to write an op-ed for the Russian newspaper Pravda, according to Foreign Policy:

In a first-of-its kind arrangementthe editors of Russian newspaper Pravda have tentatively agreed to publish a column by Sen. John McCain that will attack the leadership of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The agreement comes one day after Putin criticized the United States in a widely-read column in The New York Times.
