Ukraine War Crimes: ‘The decision to issue an arrest warrant against Putin is correct’, said US President Biden

Joe Biden On Putin Arrest Warrant: An arrest warrant has been issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin has been accused of having deported thousands of Ukrainian children because of Russia’s invasion.

In response to a question from journalists on the matter related to the arrest of the President of Russia, US President Joe Biden said that Russian President Vladimir Putin has committed war crimes. However, Russia has President  The allegations against Putin have been rejected outright.

The decision to issue an arrest warrant is correct
On the other hand, it is not clear on the arrest warrant issued for the President of Russia whether Russia as a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC) This is the result of non-participation. On this, Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that apart from Russia, there are many different countries in the world, which do not recognize the jurisdiction of this court, so legally, this court’s decision is valid.

On the other hand, Ukraine has claimed that more than 16,000 Ukrainian children have been deported to Russia since the Russian invasion. US President Joe Biden said that Putin has invaded one of the 120 countries involved in the ICC, hence an arrest warrant has been issued against him. I think the decision to issue a warrant of arrest against him was correct.


I just asked @POTUS:

“Should Putin be tried for war crimes in Ukraine”

Biden: “He clearly committed war crimes”

The arrest warrant is based on forensic evidence
Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky said about the arrest that this is a historic decision, from which historical responsibility will begin. At the same time, according to the report of AFP, ICC Prosecutor Karim Khan said that the arrest warrant has been determined on the basis of forensic evidence, investigation and statement of two persons. Karim Khan said the evidence we presented focused on crimes against children.

Children are the weakest part of our society. Ukraine’s allies from the West also hailed the move, welcoming Britain’s decision, while the European Union said the warrant was just the beginning.
