PUTIN’S response to the International Criminal Court’s issuing a warrant for his arrest over the forced deportation of hundreds of Ukrainian children to Russia, is to tell the world that the children were taken to Russia ‘for their own safety’.

That is about as believable as Hitler claiming that the millions of Jews transported in cattle cars to his concentration camps was for their own safety!

Given the growing number of well-documented atrocities committed by the Russian invaders in Ukraine, the ICC warrant for Putin’s arrest is just the first of many such that will be issued for Putin and the gang of thugs that keep him in power.

And how on earth can a country whose head of state has been charged with a war crime be permitted to retain its seat as one of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council?
