Russia Quits International Criminal Court

Share This

Russia says it will pull back from the International Criminal Court (ICC) under a mandate marked by President Vladimir Putin.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said the ICC had "neglected to meet the desires to end up a genuinely free, definitive universal tribunal," in an announcement discharged Wednesday.
It portrayed the ICC as "ineffectual," including that "amid the 14 years of the court's work it passed just four sentences having spent over a billion dollars."

Russia likewise condemned the court's treatment of the nation's five-day strife with neighboring Georgia in 2008, saying "we can scarcely believe the ICC in such a circumstance."
ICC representative Fadi El Abdallah said in an announcement that "participation of the Rome Statute is an intentional and sovereign choice which is the privilege of all states," including "the ICC is aware of every states' power."
Under Wednesday's mandate, President Putin trained his Ministry of Foreign Affairs to illuminate the UN Secretary General that Russia no longer expects to wind up a state gathering to the Rome Statute, the settlement that built up the ICC.
