The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin for alleged involvement in war crimes.
The warrant is related to accusations that Putin was involved in the abductions of children from Ukraine, which is a violation of international law.
Under the Geneva Convention, children are afforded special protection, and it is forbidden for occupying powers to transfer civilians from the territory they live in to other territories.
The situation in Ukraine is said to be dire, with reports of torture and other atrocities being committed against civilians.
