Background:

  • The International Criminal Court (ICC) issued arrest warrants for Russian President Vladimir Putin and Maria Lvova-Belova, the Russian Presidential Commissioner for Children’s Affairs, on 17 March 2023.

  • All member states of the International Criminal Court are legally bound to detain Putin, now deemed a suspect, and hand him over to the court. Marco Buschmann, the German Justice Minister, said that he would execute an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin if he sets foot on German soil.

  • Russia said that the ICC “has no power” on the territory of the Russian Federation.
