Russia Accuses Washington of Having “Sluggish Schizophrenia”
Russia has accused the United States of “sluggish schizophrenia” as President Joe Biden expressed support for the International Criminal Court issuing a warrant for President Vladimir Putin’s arrest, despite the fact the U.S. does not recognise the court.
The Netherlands-based International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued arrest warrants for President Putin and Russia’s Commissioner for Children’s Rights, Maria Lvova-Belova, over the deportation of Ukrainian children to Russia — although executing the warrants could be difficult given Russia is not subject to the ICC.
U.S. President Joe Biden appeared to back the ICC in comments to reporters, saying its warrant for Putin “makes a very strong point” and that the Russian leader has “clearly committed war crimes” — before having to admit that the United States, like Russia, does not recognise the court’s authority.
