The arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for Russian President Vladimir Putin is yet another manifestation of the West’s schizophrenia, says a summary from the war theater in the Essence of Time newspaper.
The newspaper quotes Dmitry Medvedev, deputy head of the Russian Security Council. The politician noted the final collapse of the system of international law. As an example, he considered the decision of the ICC to issue a warrant for Putin.
Medvedev stressed that such a decision would be of no practical value, but it would have terrible consequences for the system of international law. He called the situation a collapse of the foundations of law.
“Trust has run out,” Medvedev clarified. He predicted that now states will not turn to international structures, but will negotiate among themselves.
“The warrant for Putin’s arrest is yet another manifestation of schizophrenia. You can’t declare a head of state a war criminal and conclude any deals with this state, such as a peace agreement on Ukraine or on grain exports. But they do…” says an editorial in the Essence of Time newspaper.
