Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council, on Monday threatened the International Criminal Court with a missile strike after the global body issued an arrest warrant for President Vladimir Putin.
“I am afraid gentlemen, everyone is answerable to God and missiles. Its quite possible to imagine how a hypersonic oniks fired from a Russian warship in the North Sea strikes the court building in the Hague. It can’t be shot down. I am afraid,” Medvedev wrote on Telegram.
The former Russian president also warned the ICC judged to ‘watch the skies closely’ calling the court ‘a pathetic international organisation.’
Notably, ICC has accused Putin of being responsible for war crimes committed in Ukraine, but Russian has denied committing any atrocities in Ukraine.
