Can be arrested on the territory of more than a hundred countries: Zelensky commented on the decision of the ISS on Putin

Must read

The International Criminal Court issued arrest warrants for President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and Ombudsman for Children of the Russian Federation Maria Lvovo-Belova (in September 2022, she was included in the US sanctions list).

Head of the Office of the President Andriy Yermak wrote about this in his Telegram.

“This means that they can be arrested on the territory of countries that have ratified the Rome Statute,” he noted.

The head of the Presidential Office reminded that Ukraine systematically cooperates with the ISS.

There is also the Coordinating Council of Ukraine on the Protection and Safety of Children, whose task is to stop the forced transfer or deportation of children from Ukraine to the Russian Federation and return and reunite families in accordance with the interests of the child and international law.

More than 16,000 cases of forced deportation of children have been recorded in the proceedings under investigation in Ukraine. The real numbers can be many times higher.

“308 children were returned. It’s a pretty difficult process, but we’re working on it.” stated the head of the Office of the President.

Reference: The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court was signed by only 155 states (but ratified by 122 states). The charter establishes the functions, jurisdiction and structure of the court.

Countries that have ratified the Rome Statute are marked in green.

Recall that in early March, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Karim Khan, came to Ukraine. Then President Zelensky expressed the hope that this institution and personality play a historic role in bringing Russian criminals to justice.
