The court has concentrated its allegations on his alleged involvement in war crimes on the forcible deportation of children from Ukraine to Russia. 

According to the report, the crimes in Ukraine began on February 24, 2022, the day Russia began its full-scale invasion. 

The warrants have been called “outrageous” by Moscow, which has refuted the accusations. 

The ICC can only exercise jurisdiction within its member countries, and Russia is not one of them, therefore it is highly unlikely that much will result from the action. The ICC also lacks the authority to detain individuals. 

The president can experience various effects as a result, such being unable to go abroad. 

The ICC claimed in a statement that it had solid evidence that Mr. Putin had both worked alone and in concert with others to conduct the crimes. It also charged him with neglecting to exercise his presidential authority to halt the deportation of minors. 

Joseph Biden, the US president, responded, “Well, I think it’s justified,” when asked about the ICC’s action. “But I think it makes a pretty good point,” he said, noting that the US has not ratified the ICC. Putin “certainly committed war crimes,” he asserted. 

Maria Lvova-Belova, Russia’s child rights commissioner, is also wanted by the ICC for the same offences. 

She has already spoken candidly about initiatives aimed at indoctrinating Ukrainian children sent to Russia. 

Ms. Lvova-Belova claimed in September of last year that some of the kids who had been taken from Mariupol “talked negatively about the [Russian President], said nasty things, and sung the Ukrainian anthem.” 

She has also asserted that she adopted a 15-year-old Mariupol kid. 

In the case that making the arrest warrants public prevented additional crimes from being committed, the ICC claimed it initially thought about keeping them a secret. 

Children cannot be considered as spoils of war, according to ICC prosecutor Karim Khan, who also told the BBC that they cannot be deported. 

To understand how terrible this kind of conduct is, one does not need to be a lawyer, he continued. 

Analysis: Is Putin ever going to be tried for war crimes? 

What war crimes is Russia allegedly guilty of? 

Why is the International Criminal Court important? 

Within minutes of the revelation, the warrants drew reactions, with Kremlin officials immediately dismissing them. 

Dmitry Peskov, the spokesperson, referred to any decisions made by the court as “null and void,” while Dmitry Medvedev, a former Russian president, likened the warrant to toilet paper. 

Using a toilet paper emoji, he stated on Twitter, “No need to clarify WHERE this paper should be used. 

Leaders of the Russian opposition, however, were pleased with the news. That was “a symbolic step,” but a vital one, according to Ivan Zhdanov, a close ally of imprisoned opposition leader Alexei Navalny. 

The criminal court’s decision to pursue charges against “state evil,” according to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, is something for which he is grateful. 

Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Andriy Kostin claimed the judgment was “historic for Ukraine”, while the country’s presidential chief of staff, Andriy Yermak, welcomed the move as “just the beginning”. But, there is very little likelihood that Vladimir Putin or Maria Lvova-Belova will show up in The Hague’s dock because Russia has not ratified the ICC. 

Russia is “clearly not going to cooperate in this respect,” Jonathan Leader Maynard, a lecturer in international politics at King’s College London, told the BBC. The ICC depends on states’ help to arrest suspects. 

Slobodan Milosevic, the Serbian leader who was tried for war crimes in Croatia, Bosnia, and Kosovo, was never expected to end up in The Hague, Mr. Khan noted. 

He said, “People who think you can commit a crime during the day and sleep peacefully at night, perhaps look at history. 

But Mr. Putin does have a problem with this from a legal standpoint. 

Mr. Putin is now a wanted man, which will obviously limit the nations he may travel, despite the fact that he is the leader of a G20 state and soon to shake hands with China’s Xi Jinping in a historic encounter. 

The fact that such a powerful, international organization as the ICC does not accept the Kremlin’s denials is extremely embarrassing for the Kremlin, which has consistently refuted claims of Russian war crimes.
