If you’re already in a war with someone, is there really a point of leveling criminal charges against a particular leader who’s already considered to be evil? It’s like, ‘Yeah, we get it. He sucks at life.’ Kind of redundant, to be honest.

In any case, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has reportedly issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin, charging the embattled leader with “unlawfully deporting children from occupied areas of Ukraine and bringing them into Russia,” according to a report by ABC News.

The ICC also issued a warrant for “Russia’s presidential commissioner for children’s rights” Maria Lvova-Belova, who is allegedly the person who carried out the deportations.

While Ukrainian officials are claiming that these charges are “just the beginning,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova “have no meaning for the Russian Federation.”

While practically no one is rooting for Russia in this conflict, and rightfully so, for the international community that is breathing down Putin’s neck to believe that the Russians would care at all about this move is naive and most likely for show.
