Arrest Warrant Issued For Putin
The International Criminal Court on Friday issued an arrest warrant for one "Mr. Vladimir Putin" in connection with the systematic abduction of Ukrainian children. Also hypothetically under arrest: Maria Lvova-Belova, Putin's Commissioner for Children's Rights, who's in charge of a sweeping effort to transfer the children and teenagers to Russia, where they're adopted and assimilated.

People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Propaganda value limited here except for Dummies
Who’s the glass house? It’s not the US issuing the warrant.
Also, let me just remind readers before this gets going in the wrong direction: Kremlin-style “Whataboutism” isn’t permitted in our comments section, and neither is any sort of propaganda that could be construed as an apology for Russian aggression. This isn’t the place.
Would truly rejoice seeing Mr. Putin face an actual trial for his atrocities, sadly he has nuclear immunity, at least for now.
I wonder if this forces Putin to think twice about traveling abroad now or in the future, even to neutral countries
In 2022, these were the countries that Putin was reported to have visited: China, Belarus, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan (hard to spell), Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan.
It would appear that Putin is staying relatively close to home and with relatives/friends.
LOL, only going where he can crash on the couch!
Not at all agreeing with George, but wondering whether this charge or a conviction is likely to affect the views of those capable of influencing Russia’s conduct of this war, namely the governments of China, India and Iran, and secondarily, Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis. Unfortunately I don’t think any of them will care.
You are probably right, the named countries/persons will probably not care.
A trial or conviction will be highly unlikely as well given that Russia does not recognizes the ICC. However, this charge does limit Putins movements, as he will be (at least theoretically) subject to extradiction should he visit any countries that do recognize the ICC. Not that he is showing any interest in doing so.
From that perspective he could at least still visit the US ?
