According to the Ukrainian prosecutor's office, the collected materials allow for proving over 100,000 war crimes committed by Russian army on the territory of Ukraine.

Arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin. Zakharova: It doesn't matter

In March 2023 International Criminal Court in The Hague issued an arrest warrant for the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and plenipotentiary for children's rights to the President of Russia Maria Lwowa-Biełowa. The ICC accused them of “unlawful deportation and displacement of people – including children – from areas of Ukraine occupied by Russia.”

Just after the order was issued Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marija Zakharova she said it “doesn't matter at all.” “Russia is not a member of the Rome Statute of the ICC, (referred to by the institution – ed.), therefore there is no liability towards the Tribunal. Russia does not cooperate with this body, so any 'prescriptions' coming from the Tribunal will be legally invalid for us“- she noted.
