Yerevan recognized the ICC and will be forced to detain Russian President Putin in case of his visit

On Friday, March 24, the Constitutional Court of Armenia ruled that Yerevan's accession to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court is consistent with the country's Constitution. The decision was read out by the head of the Constitutional Court Arman Dilanyan.

Armenia's accession to the organization has been going on for several months already. The legitimacy of this step should be determined by the highest judicial instance of the state, as the speaker of the Armenian parliament Alen Simonyan told the media the day before.

According to the head of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Svetlana Zhurova, such a decision by Armenia looks very strange, especially since the compliance of accession to the Rome Statute of the ICC with the Basic Law was made public after the decision of the pre-trial chamber of this body to issue a warrant for the arrest of Vladimir Putin.

Meanwhile, Moscow continues to prepare for the upcoming BRICS summit in South Africa this August, despite the fact that, hypothetically, this country may comply with the decision of the International Court of Justice. South African Foreign Minister Naledi Pandor confirmed the invitation to the summit of representatives of the Russian Federation.

According to the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, preparations for the summit are proceeding as usual, regardless of the ICC step. Directly, the decision to participate in the meeting in South Africa, Vladimir Putin has not yet been made.

      can he arrest Abramovich's business? or is this "respected partner" a patriot of Russia? can you tell me how much tiramisu he bought for the rescued Russian prisoners and how many iPhones he gave them?

      for the failed Armenian direction, Lavrov and all sorts of Zakharovs should be responsible, and not citizens of Russia of Armenian origin (as well as any other)

      In addition to this site, who else hopes for GDP? If so, then on May 9 we'll talk about how many Russian lands are occupied and all the elite receive medals. So far, it has been so and there are no prerequisites for change.

      We need to figure out who is stupid in this situation.
      Armenia, which receives a bunch of goodies and freebies from Russia, without giving anything in return. Or Russia, which gives endless gifts and freebies to everyone.
      So who's dumb then?

    It will be interesting to see. How will the Armenians arrest Putin??? How did Pashinyan become so bold??? Suddenly it will turn out the other way around and the state of Armenia will disappear from the map of the Earth. The United States is far away, thousands of kilometers, and 250 kilometers to the Russian Federation. Everything happens in the world.

    Are they really "obliged"? Those. If they don't arrest them, will they be punished later?
    And if you warn that if only one hair from the head of the GDP falls, then there will be no more Armenia?
    Physically, there will be no Yerevan, let's say a few megaton bombs... To find out what BETRAYAL is. Maybe they will think with their heads there?

    And what is there to be surprised?! Such a policy of the Kremlin, this will be appreciated by a psychiatrist. In fact, the question of a damned egg is not worth it - as soon as the West has sucked everything out of any country and abandoned it, the power immediately quickly changes to "pro-Russian". Immediately statements and oaths in "eternal" friendship! Just save, and Russia foolishly saves. Saved, "eternal" friendship died, and Russia again spat on, hanging its head. People call them "blessed" or something like that. Warriors at the front fight like this , in order to win, but the power, so as not to win. The satellites are still NEWS! The channels are coded. Well, OP WHAT can I say!

      Damn, what kind of Russia saves? The decision is made by one and his retinue. They are not Russia. Russia is us. But the most interesting thing is that the majority actually voted for him, simply because he watches TV. Therefore, what we voted for, now we have it. Such a foreign policy, such a domestic economy. Such import substitution. Such judges. such deputies. Smile and wave!

    True allies! However, why be surprised? Faithful allies are (and even then rarely) among the strong, successful, generous. Armenia used our generosity to the fullest, and now there is a snag with this - the money was stolen, there is nothing to distribute. And our strength has been observed by everyone for a year now. It hardly impresses anyone, rather, it amazes.
    The only question is - why was it all these years to spend resources on an "ally", whose weathervane-likeness was well known to everyone from history? To once again sigh and cry about betrayal and ingratitude? And this despite the fact that they were perfectly predicted in advance? We seem to be incorrigible masochists. We simply enjoy being committed, it gives us a sense of moral superiority. Well... everyone gets pleasure according to their own taste, which, as you know, is not argued about.
    And now it’s better for Vladimir Vladimirovich not to go to Belarus - you never know. Suddenly Alexander Grigoryevich will remember about the multi-vector approach, and about his Ukrainian roots, and ... it may turn out badly.

    the fact that Armenia confirmed its participation in the ICC does not mean ABSOLUTELY that Putin will be arrested on the territory of this country ... just as he will not be arrested in South Africa, which is also a member of this organization ...

    Let them try. Or will Putin go to Armenia without his own bodyguards? And more recently, they shook hands with Putin and assured him of eternal friendship. The saying "tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you who you are" is true. Why does Russia need "friends" at all? USA has friends? They do not need them, it is enough that everyone is afraid of them.
