International Criminal Court Issues Arrest Warrant for Vladimir Putin

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, for war crimes committed in Ukraine. The Court emphasized the illegal deportation of children from Ukraine to Russia.

Addressing the Court’s claims, Moscow said the allegations are “outrageous.” According to these claims, this unlawful deportation of children occurred when Russia was at its peak in the war against Ukraine when the war first broke out.

Not only this, Russia’ Commissioner for Children’s Rights – Maria Lvova-Belova, is also facing backlash and allegations. She has played this role since 2021 and is being called out for a the part she played in these alleged abductions. Vladimir Putin and Maria Lvova-Belova are believed to bear “individual criminal responsibility” for these crimes, according to the ICC.

The judges who issued the warrant initially planned to do so secretly but decided ultimately to make the allegations publicly.

While the abduction of children is the primary focus of the arrest warrant, there is also information on Russia having committed 400 war crimes in the Kherson region of Ukraine. Countless civilians have been murdered, and mass burial sites have been unearthed in areas that Russian troops previously occupied. The bodies of civilians found here also point to signs of torture.

Russia’s war against Ukraine began in February of 2022 and has resulted in innumerable lives being lost. This war also caused one of Europe’s most significant refugee crises since the second world war. Nearly 42,000 people have lost their lives, and 15,000 are believed to be missing.

Despite the allegations and arrest warrant, Russia continues to deny that it committed any war crimes in Ukraine. Authorities claim ICC’s allegations are unacceptable, and Maria Lvova-Belova also said that although some things may have started badly, “they transform into a love for Russia.”
