The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The court accuses him of war crimes and has focused its claims on the illegal deportation of children from Ukraine to Russia.
It claims the crimes were committed in Ukraine beginning on February 24, 2022, when Russia launched its full-scale invasion.
Moscow has denied the allegations and labelled the warrants as “outrageous”.
The move is unlikely to have much of an impact because the ICC lacks the authority to arrest suspects and can only exercise jurisdiction within its member countries, of which Russia is not one.
It is now unclear if the judgement will be executed or not
