International Criminal Court: Arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin for war crimes

charges against him

Today, the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin, accusing him of being responsible for war crimes committed in Ukraine.

In a statement, the court said Putin “is allegedly responsible for the war crime of illegal deportation of (children’s) residents and illegal transfer of (children’s) residents from the occupied Ukrainian territories to the Russian Federation.”

It also issued an arrest warrant for Maria Alekseevna Lvova Belova, Commissioner for Children’s Rights in the Office of the President of the Russian Federation on similar charges.

The judges considered issuing secret arrest warrants, but decided that making them public could “help prevent further crimes from being committed”.

Moscow has repeatedly denied allegations of atrocities during its year-long invasion of its neighbour.
