“The irresponsible statements by some German officials about their support and readiness to comply with the illegitimate and completely absurd decision of the International Criminal Court are of extreme concern and indicate how far from reality they are in their desire to further escalate the conflict with Russia. . “Nechaev said in a statement posted on the embassy’s Telegram page.
Recall that today German Justice Minister Marco Buschmann told local media that Russian President Vladimir Putin will be arrested if he visits Germany. Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, spoke at a briefing on the legal nullity for Russia of the accusations of the International Criminal Court. “Even if something like this is really being prepared in the depths of the International Criminal Court, for our country this “something” will represent absolutely nothing, it will have no meaning. <...> Russia is not a party to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and does not support obligations under it. Therefore, I repeat, Russia does not cooperate with this body. And maybe some “prescriptions for arrest” coming from the international court will be legally null and void for us,” the Russian diplomat told a briefing on Thursday, on the eve of the ICC decision for a warrant.
