Russia mocked the International Tribunal! Arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin branded as ‘toilet paper’



Moscow: Russia on Friday mocked the arrest warrant issued for President Vladimir Putin. Russia has called the International Criminal Court’s decision void before the world because Moscow does not recognize the jurisdiction of the Hague-based court. Senior Russian officials are extremely angry at the move, while Putin’s critics have welcomed the move.

According to an AFP report, Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media: “Russia, like many other countries, does not recognize the jurisdiction of this court.” Russia is not even a member of the ICC, so from a legal point of view, the decisions of this court are void. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the rulings of the International Criminal Court (ICC) have no meaning for Russia. Opposition Mikhail Khodorkovsky said on social media: “Congratulations to Vladimir on his arrest! This is only the first step. Vladimir Milov, an aide to opposition politician Alexei Navalny, tweeted: ‘Lock him up in prison”.

He said these crimes have been committed since February 24, 2022, when Russia began to fully infiltrate Ukraine. Although Moscow has denied all allegations of war crimes, including infiltration. The ICC has accused Putin of involvement in deporting children and said it has reasonable grounds to believe he directly committed these acts and aided others in doing so.
