The International Criminal Court or ICC issues an arrest warrant against Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, March 17.

The warrant was based on suspicions of unlawful deportation of children and unlawful transfer of people from the territory of Ukraine to the Russian Federation. The court also issued a warrant for Maria Lvova-Belova, Russia’s Commissioner for Children’s Rights.
