As the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin and accused him of committing war crimes, the speaker of the Russian parliament recommended on Saturday that the operations of the ICC be banned entirely.
An supporter of Putin’s named Vyacheslav Volodin suggested that Russian law should be altered to ban any operation of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in Russia and to penalise anybody who provided “help and support” to the ICC. This proposal was made by Volodin.
In a message on Telegram, Volodin made the statement that it is required to formulate adjustments to law in order to ban any action carried out by the ICC on the territory of our nation.
Volodin said that legislation had been passed in the United States to prevent its nationals from ever being prosecuted by the Hague court, and that Russia ought to continue the job that the United States had begun. According to what he stated, any cooperation or support for the ICC inside of Russia ought to be criminal under the law.
At the beginning of this month, the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin, accusing him of committing the war crime of unlawfully deporting hundreds of children from Ukraine. It was said that there are reasonable reasons to assume that Putin is personally responsible for this crime.
Officials from Russia have warned that any effort to detain Vladimir Putin, who has served as Russia’s most powerful leader since the last day of the year 1999, would be tantamount to a declaration of war against the country with the most nuclear weapons in the world.
Since February 24, 2022, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued its first warrant for Ukraine, which calls for the arrest of Vladimir Putin on suspicion of unlawfully deporting children and unlawfully transferring people from the territory of Ukraine to the territory of the Russian Federation.
The Kremlin has said that the arrest warrant issued by the ICC is an example of extreme partisanship, but that it is worthless in relation to Russia. Officials from Russia have said that there have been no war crimes committed in Ukraine, and they have claimed that the West has disregarded what they consider to be war crimes committed in Ukraine.
Although they are not members of the International Criminal Court (ICC), major powers such as Russia, the United States of America, and China are among the 123 countries that are state parties to the Rome Statute. These countries include Britain, France, Germany, and some former Soviet republics such as Tajikistan.
While Ukraine is not a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC), the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv has agreed to allow the ICC to pursue crimes committed on Ukrainian soil.
