      1. 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.

    1. 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.

    1. 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 ?
