Former President Dmitry Medvedev said that any attempt to arrest President Vladimir Putin after the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued a warrant would amount to a declaration of war.
“Let’s imagine – obviously this situation which will never be realised – but nevertheless, lets imagine that it was realised: The current head of the nuclear state went to a territory, say Germany, and was arrested,” Medvedev said.
“What would that be? It would be a declaration of war on the Russian Federation,” he said in a video posted on Telegram.
“And in that case, all our assets – all our missiles et cetera – would fly to the Bundestag, to the Chancellor’s office.”
The ICC issued an arrest warrant on Friday, accusing Putin of the war crime of illegally deporting hundreds of children from Ukraine.
