MK Tolstoy urged not to take ICC decision on Putin ‘arrest’ warrant seriously
Vice-president State Duma Peter Tolstoy reacted to the decision of the International Criminal Court (ICC) on an arrest warrant against the President of Russia Vladimir Poutine. He posted his comment on Telegram.
The MP recalled that the Rome Statute, on the basis of which the ICC operates, has not been ratified Russia. Besides, Moscow is not a member of the organization and in 2016 she ceased to be an observer there. “We therefore cannot and should not take these statements seriously,” he said.
