Yesterday on “The Lead,” Sen. McCain jokingly told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he’d like to write an op-ed for Pravda in response to Vladimir Putin’s New York Times troll piece. Well, thanks to a little nudging by Foreign Policy’s John Hudson, Pravda’s English editor Dmitry Sudakov has tentatively agreed to publish an attack op-ed by McCain (or maybe not; see update below).

Here’s what Sudakov said:

“If John McCain wants to write something for us, he is welcome,” Dmitry Sudakov, the English editor of Pravda tells The Cable. “Mr. McCain has been an active anti-Russian politician for many years already. We have been critical of his stance on Russia and international politics in our materials, but we would be only pleased to publish a story penned by such a prominent politician as John McCain.”
