The International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant against Russian President Vladimir Putin.
International Criminal Court: The war between Russia and Ukraine has been going on for almost 13 months. In such a situation, both the countries are engaged in carrying out their respective strategies with the aim of gaining military edge against each other. Meanwhile, an arrest warrant was issued against Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The court said in its statement that Putin is allegedly responsible for the illegal deportation and abduction of Ukrainian children from the occupied territories of Ukraine by Russia. Under these allegations, a warrant has also been issued against Maria Alekseyevna Lvova-Belova, Commissioner of Children’s Rights in the Office of the President. The International Criminal Court has said that there is sufficient evidence against those suspected of involvement in the illegal deportation of Ukrainian children. They have deported Ukrainian children and people from occupied Ukrainian territories to Russia.
The statement of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky also came to the fore in this matter. He described the arrest warrant issued against Vladimir Putin as just the beginning. ICC prosecutor Karim Khan launched an investigation into possible war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide in Ukraine a year ago.
