After the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin, Russia opened a criminal case against ICC prosecutor Karim Ahmad Khan and three judges. The corresponding statement was published by the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation.

It is noted that the prosecutor Karim Khan sent a petition to one of the court chambers of the ICC to obtain a warrant for the arrest of “citizens of the Russian Federation.” On the basis of this petition, three judges issued “illegal decisions” to arrest the Russian president and Russia’s children’s ombudsman.

“Criminal prosecution is obviously illegal, since there are no grounds for criminal prosecution,” the Investigative Committee said.

Russian “law enforcers” claim that the ICC prosecutor violated the articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation on bringing a person known to be innocent to criminal responsibility and on “preparations to attack a representative of a foreign state enjoying international protection in order to complicate international relations.”

The Russian Investigative Committee charges the judges of the ICC with deliberately illegal detention and all the same “preparation for an attack on a representative of a foreign state.”

Arrest warrant for Putin

Last week, the International Criminal Court, which is based in The Hague, issued an international arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin and Russia’s children’s ombudsman. Both are accused of kidnapping Ukrainian children and taking them to Russia.

Commenting on this decision, Kremlin speaker Dmitry Peskov assured that the Russian leadership does not take it to heart. Also in Russia they note that they do not recognize the jurisdiction of the ICC.

Meanwhile, the German authorities have already announced that they will certainly arrest Putin as soon as he arrives on German territory. And ICC Prosecutor Karim Khan clarified that the warrant has no time limit, that is, it is for life.
