Warrants issued against Russian officials

The International Criminal Court on Tuesday issued arrest warrants against Russia's former defence minister and the chief of staff of its army for attacking civilian settlements in Ukraine. The court has accused former Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chief of Staff General Valery Gerasimov of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity. The court said in a statement that the warrants have been issued because the judges believe that there are reasonable grounds to believe that these people are responsible for the missile attacks of the Russian Armed Forces on power generation and power supply infrastructure in Ukraine from October 10, 2022 to March 9, 2023. The court said, 'During this period, several power plants and sub-stations were attacked by the Russian Armed Forces in several places in Ukraine.' Last year, the court issued a warrant against Russian President Vladimir Putin, accusing him of being personally responsible for the abduction of children from Ukraine.
