The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued an arrest warrant against Russian President Vladimir Putin. Reuters reported that the warrant was issued against him on Friday, accusing him of war crimes in Ukraine.
Separately, the court issued an arrest warrant for Maria Alekseevna Lvova-Belova, Russia’s commissioner for children’s rights, on the same charges.
However, Russia has been claiming that no crimes against humanity have been committed during the war in Ukraine.
The ICC issued an arrest warrant for Putin on suspicion of the illegal deportation of children and the illegal transfer of people from the territory of Ukraine to the Russian Federation.
Reuters reported earlier this week that the court may issue an arrest warrant to investigate the Ukraine conflict.
