ICC issues arrest warrant for Russian president

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The ICC alleges he is responsible for war crimes, including the unlawful deportation of children from Ukraine to Russia.
It says the crimes were committed in Ukraine from 24 February 2022 - when Russia launched its full-scale invasion.
Moscow has denied allegations of war crimes during the invasion.
The ICC also issued a warrant for the arrest of Maria Alekseyevna Lvova-Belova, the commissioner for children’s rights in the office of the Russian president on similar 
allegations.
