The German government announced its readiness to arrest Putin: how they reacted in Russia
Germany is ready to arrest Vladimir Putin if he appears on its territory. Russia has already responded to this statement. Some invaders even threatened to “go to Berlin”.
Germany is ready to arrest the President of Russia. This was stated by the Minister of Justice of Germany Marco Buschmann.
The German minister stressed that his state would not abandon its obligations and would fulfill the order.
I expect that the International Criminal Court will soon go to INTERPOL and the participating States and ask them for enforcement. Then Germany will be obliged to arrest President Putin if he enters German territory and hand him over to the ICC,” Buschmann stressed.
The reaction of the Russian invaders
The occupiers have already reacted to the statement of Minister of Justice Bushmann. In particular, the so-called Deputy Minister of Information of the pseudo-republic “DPR” Daniil Bessonov threatens to seize Germany.
So, if our president (Putin – Channel 24) needs to visit Germany, then first the foot of a Russian soldier will set foot on its land, – Bessonov wrote cynically.
Journalist Denis Kazansky remarked: “People who have not been able to take Maryinka and Avdiivka for a year are threatening to send Russian soldiers to Berlin.”
Later it became known that the head of the investigative committee of Russia Bastrykin instructed to give a legal assessment of the statements of the Minister of Justice of Germany. Of course, the occupiers once again called the decision of the International Criminal Court “illegal”.
Zelensky reacted to the statement of the German minister
The adviser to the head of the OP noted that the international warrant should be carried out. “And it is very symbolic that it was Germany that was the first to set the hard accents: in the event that the “suspected Putin V.V.” appears in their jurisdiction, he will be immediately arrested for organizing mass abduction and aggressive violence against Ukrainian children,” Mykhailo Podolyak emphasized.
Note! On March 17, 2023, the Hague Tribunal issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin and Maria Lvova-Belova. Chief Prosecutor of the ICC Karim Khan stressed that there is convincing evidence that the Russian President is responsible for the illegal deportation of Ukrainian children from the occupied territories. The warrant means that outside of Russia, Putin must be arrested and brought to trial. He must be detained on the territory of countries that have ratified the Rome Charter. We are talking about 122 states.
