The International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin on the grounds of war crimes.

While the Ukrainian administration welcomed the decision, the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement that the decision made no sense.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russian children’s rights ombudsman Maria Lvova-Belova on the grounds of war crimes.

Court judges found Russian President Vladimir Putin responsible for war crimes in Ukraine. While the Ukrainian administration said it welcomed the decision, Moscow said: “The decision is invalid.” said.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov made a statement regarding the ICC’s arrest warrant for Putin and Lvova-Belova. Noting that they considered the formulation of the question shameful and unacceptable, Peskov said: “Russia, like some states, does not recognize the jurisdiction of this court. Therefore, any such decision is legally invalid for the Russian Federation.” said.


The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, announced the decision in a statement on her page on the social network: “The decisions of the International Criminal Court have no meaning for our country, including in the legal aspect. Russia is not a party to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and has no corresponding obligations.” gave his assessment.

Noting that Russia does not cooperate with this institution, Zakharova stressed that therefore the arrest warrants issued by the international court would be legally invalid for them.


Maria Lvova-Belova, the children’s rights ombudsman in Russia, against whom the ICC issued an arrest warrant, said in a statement: “The work of the international community to help the children of our country requires us not to leave them in the war zone, good conditions for them, to surround them with people who love and care for them, it’s nice to appreciate it!” said.

Recalling that many countries, including Japan, have imposed sanctions against her, Lvova-Belova said: “Now there is an arrest warrant. I wonder what will happen next. We continue our work.” used phrases.


Russian Security Council Vice President Dmitry Medvedev, on the other hand, recalled in a statement on his social media account that the ICC had issued an arrest warrant for Putin with a toilet paper smiley face: “There is no need to explain where this document should be. be used.” commented.
