Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Friday compared the International Criminal Court’s arrest warrant for President Vladimir Putin to toilet paper.
“The International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant against Vladimir Putin. No need to explain WHERE this paper should be used,” Medvedev said on Twitter, adding a toilet paper emoji.
“The decisions of the International Criminal Court have no meaning for our country, including from a legal point of view,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on her Telegram channel.
“Russia is not a party to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and bears no obligations under it.”
The Kremlin did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Maria Lvova-Belova, the Russian commissioner for children’s rights, was like Putin accused by the ICC of the war crime of illegal deportation of children from Ukraine.
