ICC issue arrest warrant for Putin over war crime allegations

Quote

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The court alleges he is responsible for war crimes, including the unlawful deportation of children from Ukraine to Russia.

It says the crimes were committed in Ukraine from 24 February 2022 - when Russia launched its full-scale invasion.

Moscow has denied allegations of war crimes during the invasion.

It was the first time the global court has issued a warrant against a leader of one of the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council.

Good luck on getting ahold of him though.

Maybe send in Dog the Bountyhunter?

Its practical implications, however, could be limited as the chances of Putin facing trial at the ICC are highly unlikely because Moscow does not recognize the court’s jurisdiction or extradite its nationals.

Joe Biden has welcomed the international criminal court’s decision to issue an arrest warrant for the Russian president for war crimes in Ukraine.

The US president said Vladimir Putin had clearly committed war crimes and that the arrest warrant for the Russian leader made a “very strong point”.

“Well, I think it’s justified,” Biden said of the warrant on Friday. “But the question is – [the ICC is] not recognised internationally by us either. But I think it makes a very strong point.”

The US is not a member of the court and the Pentagon has resisted cooperating with it because of fears American soldiers could be pursued by the court.

Never a good idea to trade insults and personal threats with the second most powerful man on the planet

I thought that was Xi now. Putin would be third. :whistle:

Especially with the mockery his military has become.

I'd say bringing Maria Lvova-Belova to the court is more feasible. That b**** may travel to the country without checking first...

Heads of State have diplomatic immunity and America and 30 other countries haven’t signed the treaty. So technically if Trump got re-elected Putin could visit him in the White House

I know. The States would never sign the treaty. Dick Cheney and Bush Jr. would be a war criminals.

I read today an interesting take on this arrest warrant. It’s a message to Russia and Putin, that we will not meet or discuss any negotiation about Ukraine’s partition with you because you are a war criminal, Putin. But maybe with a more reasonable successor.  
 

Nudge nudge, wink wink say no more …

Any attempt to arrest Putin would be declaration of war on Russia, ally says

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Any attempt to arrest President Vladimir Putin after the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued a warrant for the Kremlin chief would amount to a declaration of war against Russia, his ally Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday.

[...]

"Let's imagine - obviously this situation which will never be realised - but nevertheless lets imagine that it was realised: The current head of the nuclear state went to a territory, say Germany, and was arrested," Medvedev said.

"What would that be? It would be a declaration of war on the Russian Federation," he said in a video posted on Telegram. "And in that case, all our assets - all our missiles et cetera - would fly to the Bundestag, to the Chancellor's office."

The Kremlin says the ICC arrest warrant is an outrageously partisan decision, but meaningless with respect to Russia. Russian officials deny war crimes in Ukraine and say the West has ignored what it says are Ukrainian war crimes.

Hungary would not arrest Putin, says PM Orban's chief of staff

BUDAPEST, March 23 (Reuters) - Hungary would not arrest Russian President Vladimir Putin if he entered the country, Prime Minister Viktor Orban's chief of staff said on Thursday, adding that it would have no legal grounds.

Hungary signed and ratified the Rome Statute that created the International Criminal Court (ICC), which issued an arrest warrant on Friday accusing Putin of the war crime of illegally deporting hundreds of children from Ukraine. It said there were reasonable grounds to believe that Putin bears individual criminal responsibility.

When asked if Putin would be arrested if he came to Hungary, Orban's chief of staff, Gergely Gulyas, told a briefing that the Rome Statute had not been built into the Hungarian legal system.''

They can catch Putin as he tries to flee Russia for South America at the end of the war.  If his jet flies into any NATO country airspace they can simply send up jets and order the plane to land, then arrest Putin.

The ruling party of Armenia has warned that if Russian President Vladimir Putin comes to Armenia, the country will have no choice but to arrest him.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) issued a warrant for Putin’s arrest earlier this month over alleged war crimes in Ukraine, particularly his alleged involvement in the unlawful deportation of children from Ukraine. But the ICC doesn’t have the power to enforce its warrants, and since Russia doesn’t recognize the court’s jurisdiction, much of its enforcement will depend on other countries’ willingness to step in if Putin travels.

It's only justified as long as the ICC doesn't open a case about Afghanistan or start looking into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
