Biden praised the issuance of an "arrest warrant" for the leadership of Russia from the ICC
US President Joe Biden considered that the issuance of an "arrest warrant" by the International Criminal Court for Russian President Vladimir Putin and children's ombudsman Maria Lvova-Belova was "justified." It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the message of the Big House.
On Friday, the ICC issued an "arrest warrant" for Putin and Lvova-Belova.
Biden admitted that Washington itself does not recognize the International Criminal Court, but his decision regarding the leadership of the Russian Federation is "justified", and the position is "strong enough."
Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN Vasily Nebenzya, speaking at the UN Security Council, said that all documents of the International Criminal Court for Russia are void and illegal. He also called the ICC a "biased, politicized, incompetent" organization, noting that it "proved once again its inferiority." According to Nebenzi, such decisions of the ICC look especially cynical on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq.
