The forceful deportation of Ukrainian children by Moscow is allegedly a war crime, according to the International Criminal Court (ICC), which issued an arrest order for Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday.
Although presenting the operation as a humanitarian effort to safeguard orphans and children abandoned in the combat zone, Russia has not obscured that it has transferred thousands of Ukrainian youngsters to Russia.
Volodymyr Zelenskiy, the president of Ukraine, claimed the action would result in “historic accountability” and that the deportations were a “state evil that precisely originates with the top official of this state.”
The news incited a vehement reaction from Russia. According to Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Kremlin, Russia finds the questions the ICC asks “outrageous and intolerable,” and any conclusions made by the court are “null and invalid” about Russia. Russia is not a member of the ICC, just like the US and China are not.
“Yankees, stay away from Putin!” said parliament Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, a close supporter of the president, on Telegram.
He declared, “We see any assaults against the president of the Russian Federation as aggression against our nation.
There is “no question,” according to the United States that Russia is committed war crimes in Ukraine. ………………….. and the…..
Putin, who is just the third president in office for whom the ICC has issued an arrest warrant, is not likely to appear in court any time soon. But, the warrant implies that if he visits any ICC member states, he can be detained and sent to The Hague.
“As a result, Putin is despised. Traveling might result in his arrest. This remains forever. If Russia does not abide with the warrants, sanctions against it will remain in place “said Stephen Rapp, a former general war crimes envoy for the United States.
The revelation shocked the citizens of the Russian capital, who voiced their shock. Putin! Nobody will detain him, said a 20-year-old guy who identified himself only as Daniil to Reporters.
We’ll defend him, the Russian people, said Maxim.
