THE ARREST WARRANTY - Vladimir Putin is officially wanted for war crimes. This was established by the International Criminal Court in The Hague, which issued an arrest warrant for him and for Maria Lvova-Belova, Moscow's commissioner for children's rights. Both have been accused of deporting Ukrainian children to Russia. Of the three judges who made the decision, one is the Italian Rosario Aitala. The others are the Japanese Tomoko Akane and the Costa Rican Sergio Ugalde, who accepted the requests of the prosecutor Karim Khan. For Volodymyr Zelensky it is a 'historic decision, from which the historical responsibility will start'. According to Kiev, 16,221 Ukrainian minors have been forcibly and illegally brought to Russia. Joe Biden calls the measure “justified. Clearly Putin committed war crimes.” 'There is no doubt that Russia is committing war crimes and atrocities in Ukraine, and we have been clear that those responsible must be held accountable,' US National Security Council spokeswoman Adrienne Watson said. The same reaction comes from the UK. While the EU High Representative for Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, comments: “The International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant against President Putin for war crimes involving the deportation of children to Russia. The International Criminal Court writes that 'there are reasonable grounds to believe that Putin bears individual responsibility for these crimes'. The gravity of the crimes and the ICC statement speak for themselves. This is an important decision of international justice and for the Ukrainian people. We have always said clearly in the EU that those responsible for the illegal aggression against Ukraine must be brought to justice. And this mandate is only the beginning in the process of justice against Russian leaders for crimes and atrocities committed in Ukraine. The European Union appreciates and supports the work of the International Criminal Court and its investigations. There can be no impunity.'

MOSCOW'S REACTION - Opposite, of course, the reaction of Moscow. The spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, explains: 'The decisions of the International Criminal Court have no meaning for our country, not even from a legal point of view'. While Maria Lvova-Belova, the now wanted Russian commissioner for children's rights, limits herself to saying: 'Let's keep working'. The Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, however, appears indignant, speaking of an 'outrageous and unacceptable' decision. On Twitter, the deputy president of the Russian Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, is increasingly harsh: “The International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant against Vladimir Putin. No need to explain where this document should be used.' And he accompanies the text with the toilet paper emoji. In fact, if Putin leaves Russia, he could be arrested at any time. And now, Xi Jinping's visit to Moscow scheduled for Monday takes on a completely different meaning. In fact, it is unlikely that the Kremlin leader is willing to negotiate mediation. Moreover, Beijing, accused in the American media of having supplied weapons and parts of drones to the Kremlin, gave an answer which was anything but aimed at denying, through the mouth of the Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin: 'China has always carried out normal cooperation economic and trade relations with countries around the world, including Russia, on the basis of equality and mutual benefit. The cooperation between China and Russia is loyal and sincere, aiming to benefit the people of the two countries and promote the development of the world, free from interference and coercion by third parties'.

WAR FRONTS - Ukrainian anti-aircraft guns shot down 11 of the 16 drones Shahed of Iranian manufacture launched yesterday by Russia against Ukraine. However, explosions were recorded in Dnipropetrovsk, Kyiv and Zhytomyr. According to public television Suspilne , Kherson would instead have been hit 76 times in 24 hours. Jan Gagin, adviser to the acting head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk republic, announces: 'If we talk about Bakhmut our forces now control about 60%, maybe even more, up to 70% of the city itself.' But the bombs also arrive in Crimea: in particular in the village of Perevalne, in the Simferopol district, near a Kremlin military base. According to NATO sources cited by Guardian , about 1500 Russian soldiers die every day. A balance that could soon worsen: after Poland, Slovakia has also approved the sending of fighters Mig-29 Soviet-made in Ukraine. Peskov, to the Moscow agencies, appears serene: 'Naturally, the supply of this military equipment, as we have repeatedly said, will not affect the outcome of the special military operation, but it could bring further problems to Ukraine itself and to the Ukrainian people' . But the Kremlin is also talking about the alleged 15 million dollar bounty on the Italian defense minister Guido Crosetto: its existence is denied in contemptuous and mocking tones. Oleg Osipov, Medvedev's assistant, finally dismisses it as follows: 'Nobody cares about Crosetto.' And Crosetto replies on Twitter: “First Razov. Then Medvedev. Then again Razov. Then Prigozhin. Finally Osipov. The obsession of these 'gentlemen' with me has become pathological. I am not worried by them or by their vulgar insults and I extend a warm invitation to them: stay calm (cit)'.
