Moscow: Russia on Friday made fun of the arrest warrant issued for President Vladimir Putin. Russia has called the International Criminal Court’s decision void in front of the whole world, because Moscow does not recognize the jurisdiction of the Hague-based court. Russia’s top officials are extremely angry with this decision, while Putin’s critics praised the move.

According to an AFP report, Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media, ‘Russia, like many other countries, does not recognize the jurisdiction of this court.’ Russia is not even a member of the ICC, so from a legal point of view, the decisions of this court are void. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the decisions of the International Criminal Court (ICC) have no meaning for Russia. Opposition Mikhail Khodorkovsky said on social media, ‘Congratulations to Vladimir on his arrest! This is just the first step. Vladimir Milov, an aide of opposition politician Alexei Navalny, tweeted, “Lock him in jail.”
