The ICC’s decision to issue a warrant for Putin’s arrest shows that “no one is above the law,” the German chancellor said.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has welcomed the decision of the International Criminal Court in The Hague to issue an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin, The Guardian reports.
“The International Criminal Court is the right institution to investigate war crimes. The truth is that no one is above the law, and this is becoming clear today,” Scholz said at a joint press conference in Tokyo with Prime Japanese Minister Fumio Kishida.
Earlier, US President Joe Biden called the ICC’s decision to issue a warrant for Putin’s arrest a strong step.
It will be recalled that on March 17, the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin and Children’s Ombudsman Maria Alekseevna Lvovo-Belova. They are suspected of involvement in the illegal deportation of Ukrainian children.
