“No one is above the law”: Scholz approvingly appraised the arrest warrant for Putin
Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz backed the decision of the International Criminal Court to issue an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to the German politician, this decision proves that no one can be above the law.
Scholz stated this during a visit to Japan during a joint press conference with the head of the Japanese government, Fumio Kishida, in Tokyo. The Guardian writes about it.
During the press conference, Scholz welcomed the decision of the International Criminal Court to issue an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin, which was announced on March 17.
According to the German Federal Chancellor, this decision is the best proof that no one is above the law.
“The International Criminal Court is the appropriate institution for investigating war crimes … The fact is that no one can be above the law, and this is becoming clear right now,” said the head of the German government.
Recall, the day before, on March 17, the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and Russian Commissioner for Children’s Rights Maria Lvovskaya-Belova. Both are suspected of organizing and committing a serious international crime: the abduction and deportation of Ukrainians, including minors, to the territory of the Russian Federation.
For more than a year of full-scale aggression, with the assistance of the Russian authorities and according to the schemes organized by it, at least 16,000 children were deported from Ukraine. They are subjected to powerful zombification and transferred to illegal “adoption” in dozens of regions of the Russian Federation. At the same time, children who have relatives and even parents in Ukraine are changing their names so that they cannot be found.
During the entire period of a full-scale war, Ukraine managed to achieve the return home of only a little more than 300 children abducted by Russia.
The ISS warrant means that Putin, as officially suspected of committing an international crime, can be detained on the territory of any of the more than 100 states of the world that have ratified the Rome Statute.
