Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov said Russia considered the ICC decision on an arrest warrant for Putin “shocking and unacceptable” and “null and void.”

Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin’s press secretary, speaking to journalists this Friday, March 17, informed them that the Russian Federation does not recognize the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC). He said that Russia considered his decisions null and void.

The spokesman for the Russian presidency commented on the broadcast of a this agency’s arrest warrant for Russian leader Vladimir Putinas reported by tass.ru.

“We consider the very presentation of the issue outrageous and unacceptable, Russia, like a number of states, does not recognize the jurisdiction of this court and, accordingly, any such decision is null and void for the Russian Federation from the point of view of point of view of the law,” said the Kremlin spokesman.

“That is, in fact, the only thing that I would like and could tell you about this decision,” he added. Peskov did not comment on the clarifying question of whether this court decision will affect Putin’s visits to countries that do recognize ICC jurisdiction. “I have nothing to add on this subject,” he concluded.

Earlier on Friday, the ICC announced that had issued arrest warrants against Putin and the presidential commissioner for children’s rights, Maria Lvova-Belova.

The International Criminal Court was established by the 1998 Rome Statute. It is not part of the UN and is accountable to countries that have ratified the statute. Countries not party to the statute include Russia (signed but not ratified), the United States (signed but later withdrawn), and Porcelain (did not sign the statute).

In 2016, Putin signed a decree according to which Russia would not become a member of the ICC. According to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this court “did not justify the hopes placed on it and did not become a truly independent body of international justice.”
