ICC warrant for Putin shows ‘clear hostility’ towards Russia: Kremlin

MOSCOW: The Kremlin said on Monday (Mar 20) that the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) decision to issue an arrest warrant for President Vladimir Putin was a sign of the “clear hostility” that exists against Russia and against Putin personally.

But Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that Russia was reacting “calmly” and was continuing its work.

“We are witnessing such a number of clearly hostile displays against our country and against our president,” Peskov said at a regular news briefing.

“We note them, but if we took every one to heart, nothing good would come of it. Therefore we look at this calmly, note everything attentively and continue to work.”

The impact of the ICC’s move to issue an arrest warrant on Putin – as well as Russia’s children’s rights commissioner – for the mass abduction of children from Ukraine remains unclear.
