The warrant of arrest for President Putin and its implications for South Africa

On March 17, 2023, the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued a warrant of arrest for Russia’s President Vladimir Putin for alleged war crimes of unlawful deportation and transfer of population (children) from occupied areas of Ukraine to the Russian Federation.

This follows a series of attempts by the international community to intervene through the United Nations (UN) in a bid to resolve the Russia-Ukraine conflict. The Resolution A/ES-11/7 passed on 23 February 2023, was the latest attempt by the UN to condemn Russia. The organisation stressed an “immediate, complete, and unconditional” Russian withdrawal from Ukraine.
