International Criminal Court warrants Russian president, 'legitimate' move: US

International Criminal Court warrants Russian president, 'legitimate' move: US President Joe Biden has called the International Criminal Court's issuance of an arrest warrant against Russian President Vladimir Putin for the war crime of deporting Ukrainian children "legitimate".
The US president told reporters at the White House that the move "makes a very strong point", but also said the US is not a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

International Criminal Court warrants Russian president, 'legitimate' move: US

Earlier on Friday, the International Criminal Court said it had issued a war crimes arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin, accusing him of personal responsibility for the kidnapping of children from Ukraine.
Although world leaders have been indicted for war crimes in the past, this is the first time that the International Court of Justice has issued a warrant for the leader of one of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council.

The court also issued an arrest warrant for Maria Alekseevna Lova Belova, Commissioner for Children's Rights in the Office of the President of the Russian Federation.
The move by the International Court of Justice was quickly rejected by Moscow, while Ukraine hailed it as a significant development, but its practical impact may be limited as the trial of the case at the ICC continues. The chances are negligible.

But morally, the warrants will taint Putin for life, and in the foreseeable future, he will not be able to attend international summits in a country that is bound to arrest him.

"So Putin can go to China, Syria, Iran, and some of his other allies, but he won't travel to the rest of the world," according to Adel Ahmad Haq, an expert on international law and armed conflict at Rutgers University. He said that 'Putin will not travel to ICC member countries that he thinks he will actually arrest.'

Putin believes he will eventually take over Ukraine: CIA


Citing a TV interview with CIA Director William Burns, the Associated Press reported that Putin displayed a certain arrogance at a meeting in November that seemed to indicate his conviction. That they will not only destabilize Ukraine but also control our European allies and after that political affairs will finally return to normal.

Burns said that what he has gathered about Putin is that he seems determined to continue the war despite the loss of life and property.
"I think Putin has full confidence in all his abilities that he will take over Ukraine."

Burns also said that Putin is not valuing U.S. support in Ukraine and that he believes the U.S. is paying attention and we will eventually move on to another issue.
The CIA director's views come at a time when the Biden administration believes that the Chinese leadership is considering giving Russia its most lethal weapons.

Burns said that if this happens, it will be a dangerous and unwise step that will further strain the relationship between the world's two largest economies. So I hope China will not do that.
"Chinese President Xi Jinping is taking a serious look at the way the war is progressing and seems uneasy about it."
Referring to Putin's arrogance, he said that in an authoritarian system, when no one challenges their leader, huge mistakes are made.

Keep in mind that Russia attacked the neighboring country of Ukraine on February 24 last year, and since then the war has been ongoing.
The United States and other European countries have the support of Ukraine, and US President Joe Biden visited Kyiv recently.
Many sanctions have been imposed on Russia by the United States and other countries, but the Russian army is still present in Ukraine and has annexed some areas.

  The Russian president has threatened to use nuclear weapons, while Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says he will confront Russia and not surrender.
In the past few days, news of China's consideration of giving arms to Russia has caused more tension in the relationship between China and the United States, and the United States has warned it that it will face consequences if it supplies arms to Russia. it will have to be done. READ MORE
