Serbian President Vucic called the ICC decision to arrest Putin politically bad

BELGRADE, 26 Mar – The warrant of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, whose jurisdiction Russia does not recognize, against Russian President Vladimir Putin is a politically bad decision, deprives the West of the opportunity to negotiate with Moscow, said on air TV Pink Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.
Vucic pointed out on March 19 that Russia could not be defeated militarily in a year, and the ICC warrant in The Hague for the “arrest” of the President of the Russian Federation deprives the West of the opportunity to negotiate with Moscow and will lead to an escalation of the conflict and new victims. Then he said that Putin would not come to Belgrade until the end of the conflict in Ukraine, and the Serbian authorities were not thinking about the possibility of enforcing the court decision.
“Today or tomorrow, if you start negotiations, who will you talk to? You will have to sit down at the negotiating table with Putin, but how will you talk to him if this (the ICC decision – ed.) remains?” – said the Serbian leader.
“You have now made a commitment, but how will you implement it? How many lives of Russians and Ukrainians will it cost? And how many lives of everyone else will it cost because of the bad economy in Europe and the world because of this decision … I think that this is politically bad for everyone, I did not hide this from the very beginning, it is also bad for those who made this decision, who think that they are close to victory, and no one is close to it,” the President of Serbia stressed.
Earlier, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said that if Germany decides to execute the decision of the International Criminal Court (ICC) on the “arrest” of Russian President Vladimir Putin, this will be tantamount to a declaration of war, then all Russian “funds” will fly to the Bundestag.
The pre-trial chamber of the ICC, whose jurisdiction Russia does not recognize, on March 17 issued a warrant for the “arrest” of Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to the press secretary of the Russian leader Dmitry Peskov, raising the issue of the ICC on the “arrest” of the Russian president is unacceptable, and any of its decisions are null and void from the point of view of law.
