War crimes court issues Putin arrest warrant

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin over war crime accusations of unlawfully deporting Ukrainian children, as well as a warrant against Russia’s presidential commissioner for children’s rights. The move was welcomed by Ukraine, with President Volodymyr Zelensky calling it a “historic decision”. Russia dismissed the ICC’s order as “void”, while the Kremlin said the ICC had no meaning for Russia.
