The  International Criminal Court (ICC) announced Friday that it has arrest warrants for Russian President Vladimir Putin and Lvova-Belova, a so called Russian ‘children’s rights commissioner’, who is reportedly responsible for forcibly deporting thousands of Ukrianian children to Russia.

The ICC said both Putin and Lvova-Belova are “allegedly responsible for the war crime of unlawful deportation of population (children) and that of unlawful transfer of population (children) from occupied areas of Ukraine to the Russian Federation.”


Here’s the snag: Russia is not a member of the ICC and to actually arrest a charged official they would have to be caught outside of Russia.
