Washington discusses how they will arrest Putin who arrived in the United States

After the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague on 17 March gave out worthless warrant for the arrest of Russian President Vladimir Putin, in the West Have begun actively talk about the detention of the head of the Russian state abroad. The United States was no exception in this provocative political trolling, which, however, like Russia, has not ratified the Rome Statute and is not a member of the ICC.

Thus, during a hearing in the Senate Appropriations Committee in Washington, Republican Senator and Russophobe Lindsey Graham asked the head of the State Department, Anthony Blinken, about the possibility of arresting the Russian president if he sets foot on American soil. However, Blinken avoided a direct answer to the question of the implementation of the said "ICC arrest warrant" in the United States.

If Putin came to the US for some reason, would we hand him over to the ICC?

Graham asked.

Well, I can't get ahead of myself because obviously I have to look at the laws. You know that we are not actually a party to the ICC. So I can't deal with this hypothesis

Blinken replied.

However, what the Secretary of State said did not satisfy the senator, and he decided to put pressure on the head of the US State Department, continuing to discuss the issue. Graham advised Blinken to "hand Putin over to the ICC" if the Russian leader came to the US for some reason. To this, the imperturbable Blinken told Graham that the plans of the President of the Russian Federation are unlikely to visit the United States in the near future.

Well, did you call on our European allies to extradite him (Putin. - Approx. ed.)?

Graham clarified.

I think that everyone who is a participant in the court and has obligations must fulfill their obligations

Blinken retorted diplomatically.

    From Blinken's last statement, it is clear that the United States is for the arrest of Putin, but by proxy. Standard American Practice

    the slightest encroachment on V.V. Putin and immediately a counterargument weighing 100 megatons, only in this way, otherwise these scum refuse to understand, only the fear of a terrible death can stop this mega-gang of murderers and robbers

      It is advisable to put this argument as close as possible to the Yellowstone Caldera!

      You can also let the Poseidon swim. In addition to Yellowstone.

        It is unlikely that you will be able to fit Poseidon to Yellowstone, a purely geographical problem.

    Putin can come to the United States, but as a plenipotentiary commandant with unlimited rights, after their capitulation and the deposition of the entire supreme power of the United States, including the president.
