Quote: “The International Criminal Court is the right institution to investigate war crimes … The fact is that nobody is above the law and that’s what’s becoming clear right now,” Scholz said at a news conference in Tokyo, which he held together with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

Earlier, US President Joe Biden called the ICC’s decision to issue a warrant for Putin’s arrest a strong step forward.

On 17 March, Pre-Trial Chamber II of the International Criminal Court issued arrest warrants for Putin and Maria Lvova-Belova, the representative of the President of the Russian Federation on children’s rights.
