The vice president of the Russian Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, affirmed that a precision attack with a Russian missile against the headquarters of the International Criminal Court (ICC), which last Friday issued an arrest warrant against the president, is “completely imaginable”. of Russia, Vladimir Putin.

We are all at the mercy of God and missiles,” wrote Medvedev, Russia’s president between 2008 and 2012, on his Telegram channel.

He added that the precise use of an Onyx hypersonic missile launched by a Russian ship from the North Sea against the seat of the Tribunal in The Hague is “completely imaginable .”

“The court is just a miserable organization, it is not the population of NATO countries. That’s why they won’t start a war. They will be afraid. Nobody will regret it. So, judges, look carefully at the sky…”, warned the former president.

He added that the consequences of issuing an arrest warrant against a president of nuclear power will be monstrous under international law.

“Now no one will go to international bodies, all the agreements will be separate. All the stupid decisions of the UN and other structures will be shattered. The gloomy twilight of the entire system of international relations begins, ”he predicted.

The ICC issued the arrest warrant against Putin as allegedly responsible “for the war crime of illegal deportation of the population (children) and illegal transfer of population (children) from the occupied areas of Ukraine to Russia.”

In addition to Putin, the court in The Hague has also identified the main person responsible for children’s rights in Russia, Maria Lvova-Belova, as a fugitive, in both cases as a suspect in the forced deportation of Ukrainian children in occupied areas of the east from the country.

Medvedev has framed this order within the “collapse” of the international justice system, exemplified in a CFI whose efficiency is “zero”. In this sense, he has suggested that in the case of Putin, none of the hypotheses that would allow him to be tried in The Hague is given: neither is Russia internally in a position of weakness that prevents it from maintaining its current system nor has it lost any war.

From the outset, the Kremlin has been categorical in rejecting as “legally void” any decision of the ICC, since it does not recognize its jurisdiction.

“We consider legally null and void any decision of the international criminal court, which we do not recognize either,” insisted this Sunday the spokesman for the Russian Presidency, Dmitri Peskov.
