Le président russe, Vladimir Poutine, est soupçonné de crimes de guerre

La Cour pénale internationale (CPI) délivre un mandat d'arrêt à l'encontre du président russe, Vladimir Poutine et de la Commissaire russe aux droits de l'enfant, Maria Lvova-Belova pour crimes de guerre dans le cadre de son enquête sur les crimes commis en Ukraine.

Dans une déclaration écrite, la CPI a indiqué qu'un mandat d'arrêt a été délivré à l'encontre de Vladimir Poutine et de Maria Lvova-Belova pour le délit d'enlèvement d'enfants ukrainiens vers la Russie pendant la guerre russo-ukrainienne.

La CPI assure que les deux suspects ont participé au crime de transfert illégal d'enfants ukrainiens vers la Russie et que Poutine est tenu pour responsable de ne pas avoir empêché ceux qui étaient sous son autorité de commettre ce crime.

La déclaration précise qu'il existe suffisamment de soupçons à l’encontre de Poutine et Lvova-Belova concernant les faits qui leur sont reproché et que le mandat d'arrêt a été délivré à la demande du bureau du procureur de la CPI en date du 22 février 2023.

Le document précise que cette décision devait initialement rester secret afin de protéger les victimes, mais que la Cour, tenant compte du fait que les crimes continuent d'être commis, a rendu la décision publique afin d'empêcher de nouveaux crimes.

ICC issues arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin

Court says Putin is 'allegedly responsible for war crime of unlawful deportation of population (children)' in Ukraine

LONDON (AA) - The International Criminal Court (ICC) "issued warrants of arrest” for Russian President Vladimir Putin and the presidential commissioner for children's right, a statement from the court said Friday.

“Today, 17 March 2023, Pre-Trial Chamber II of the International Criminal Court … issued warrants of arrest for two individuals in the context of the situation in Ukraine: Mr Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin and Ms Maria Alekseyevna Lvova-Belova,” the statement said.


“President of the Russian Federation, is allegedly responsible for the war crime of unlawful deportation of population (children) and that of unlawful transfer of population (children) from occupied areas of Ukraine to the Russian Federation (under articles 8(2)(a)(vii) and 8(2)(b)(viii) of the Rome Statute),” it said.

The ICC also said “the crimes were allegedly committed in Ukrainian occupied territory at least from 24 February 2022.”

The court said there are "reasonable grounds" to believe that Putin "bears individual criminal responsibility" for the said crimes.

The statement also said Lvova-Belena is also allegedly responsible for “war crimes of unlawful deportation” of children from Ukraine to Russia.

The court's Pre-Trial Chamber II "considered that there are reasonable grounds to believe that each suspect bears responsibility for war crime of unlawful deportation of population and unlawful transfer of population from occupied areas of Ukraine to Russian Federation, in prejudice of Ukrainian children."

According to the statement, the Chamber also "considered that the warrants are secret in order to protect victims and witnesses and also to safeguard the investigation."

Russia says ICC arrest warrant for Putin has 'no significance'

International court issued arrest warrant for Russian president over alleged war crimes in Ukraine

ANKARA (AA) - Russia reiterated on Friday that the International Criminal Court (ICC) decisions have "no meaning" for Moscow, "including from a legal point of view."

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova's reaction on Telegram came following the ICC decision to issue "warrants of arrest" for Russian President Vladimir Putin and the presidential commissioner for children's right "in the context of the situation in Ukraine."

Zakharova underlined that Russia is not a party to the Rome Statute on the ICC and does not have obligations under it, so its decisions will have no legal consequence.

"Therefore, Russia does not cooperate with this body, and possible 'recipes' for arrest coming from the International Criminal Court will be legally null and void for us," she said.

Earlier on Friday, ICC issued an arrest warrant for the Russian president over alleged war crimes in Ukraine.
