The current deputy chairman of the security council, Dmitry Medvedev, stated that the Kremlin will attack any country that tries to arrest Putin.
There’s been a number of new developments including tit-for-tat warnings and threats following the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) last Friday issuance of an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The most blistering and alarming attack on the Hague-based court this week has been from former Russian president and current deputy chairman of the security council Dmitry Medvedev, who said any attempt to actually arrest Putin would be an act of war.
First, on Monday he said, “It’s quite possible to imagine a hypersonic missile being fired from the North Sea from a Russian ship at The Hague courthouse.” He added as part of the warning: “Everyone walks under God and rockets… Look carefully to the sky…”
In a follow-up on Wednesday he said in a video statement posted to Telegram that any “arrest” would surely spark world war 3.
