Putin can be arrested in 123 countries, warrant issued in these sections, toilet paper Russia says
According to information given on the ICC website, the court has issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Putin was also found guilty of the illegal transfer of children from the occupied territories of Ukraine to Russia.
An arrest warrant has also been issued against Maria Lvova-Belova, Russian Presidential Commissioner for Children’s Rights.
Moscow, The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued an arrest warrant for the most powerful man in Europe and Russia. According to information given on the ICC website, the court has issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin. The court accuses him of being responsible for war crimes. Along with this, Putin was also found guilty of illegally transferring children from the occupied territories of Ukraine to Russia.
The Hague-based ICC said it had also issued a warrant against Russia’s presidential commissioner for children’s rights, Maria Lvova-Belova, on similar charges. The court’s arrest warrant was based on forensic evidence, an investigation and statements from the two. The ICC said the judges concluded that there were reasonable grounds to doubt Putin’s criminal responsibility and accepted the warrant request. However, ICC President Piotr Hoffmannsky said the effectiveness of the warrant depends on international cooperation.
Let us tell you that if Putin sets foot in any of the more than 120 member countries of the court, he can be stopped. However, there is little hope that Putin can be stopped by any country. Significantly, the ICC initially considered keeping the arrest warrants secret, but decided to make them public in order to prevent further crimes from occurring. The warrant against Putin was issued under Articles 8(2)(a)(vii) and 8(2)(b)(viii) of the Rome Statute.
Russia said toilet paper
Within minutes of the announcement, the warrant was quickly rescinded by Kremlin officials. Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said any court rulings were invalid and void, and former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev compared the warrant to toilet paper. He wrote on Twitter with the toilet paper emoji, “Need to say where this paper should be used.”
