ICC issues arrest warrants for top Russian Commanders


March 6, 2024

 The International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued arrest warrants for top Russian commanders over alleged war crimes in Ukraine.

Sergei Kobylash and Viktor Sokolov, an army lieutenant general and a navy admiral, are the two men named by the ICC.

This is the second round of warrants for Russian officials related to the war in Ukraine.

The first were for President Vladimir Putin and his children’s rights envoy.

Russia does not recognise the ICC, making it highly unlikely they will ever be deported to face the charges.
