Putin wanted for questioning over Russian child deportations

The International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant on Friday for Russian President Vladimir Putin, alleging that Moscow s forcible deportation of Ukrainian children was a war crime, as the Kremlin reacted with outrage.

Russia has not concealed a program under which it has brought thousands of Ukrainian children to Russia, but it presents it as a humanitarian campaign to protect orphans and children abandoned in the conflict zone.

The move would lead to historic accountability, according to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who said the deportations were a policy of state evil that starts with the top official of the state.
