Vladimir Putin is the subject of an arrest order from the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The court has concentrated its allegations against him on the forcible deportation of children from Ukraine to Russia. The court argues he is accountable for war crimes.
It claims that beginning on February 24, 2022, when Russia began its full-scale invasion, atrocities were committed in Ukraine.
The charges have been refuted by Russia, which has called the warrants “outrageous”.
The ICC can only exercise jurisdiction inside the countries that it has as members, and Russia is one of them, therefore it is highly unlikely that the move will have much of an impact.
The president might be impacted in other ways, like his inability to go abroad.
