Us Senator John McCain took pride Monday in being the subject of conspiracy theories concocted by what he referred to as "#Russian Internet trolls."

McCain was referencing a video released by Ukrainian hacker group, CyberBerkut, which they alleged they stole from the US senator's computer while he was on a state visit to Ukraine last month.

The video shows what appears to be an ISIS beheading being staged with the use of actors on a sound stage.

The suggestion by the hackers seems to be that McCain is involved in staging the brutal videos released by the terrorist group in which they decapitate their captives.

"Another nutty conspiracy theory from the #Russian Internet trolls - I'm very proud to be target of America’s enemies," McCain tweeted, with a link to the video.

"1st they doctored pics to say I met w/ #ISIS. Now #Russian Internet trolls say I staged ISIS executions. Proud to be their #1 adversary!" he added in another tweet.
