بوتين متهم بارتكاب جرائم حرب

By Jordi Bou

March 20, 2023 - مذكرة التوقيف الصادرة عن المحكمة الجنائية الدولية تتهم الرئيس الروسي فلاديمير بوتين بارتكاب جرائم حرب بما في ذلك الترحيل غير القانوني للأطفال إلى روسيا من المناطق المحتلة في أوكرانيا.

The move is a symbolic gesture of defiance, three days after the ICC accused Putin and his children's commissioner Maria Lvova-Belova of the war crime of deporting children from Ukraine to Russia.

A report published in February by the Humanitarian Research Lab at Yale School of Public Health as part of the Conflict Observatory said Russia has held at least 6,000 Ukrainian children in sites in Russian-held Crimea and Russia whose primary purpose appears to be political re-education.

It is highly unlikely that much will come of the arrest warrant for Putin and Lvova-Belova – the ICC has no powers to arrest suspects, and can only exercise jurisdiction within its member countries – and Russia is not one of them.

However it could affect the president in other ways, such as being unable to travel internationally.
