The Russian Embassy in Washington has commented on the US position on the International Criminal Court (ICC), comparing it to “slow schizophrenia”. On the Telegram channel, diplomatic missions noted that the United States accepts the position of the ICC when it criticizes Moscow, but ignores it when the court speaks of violations by Washington.
“Allowing themselves to make objectionable statements about the Russian leader, US officials deliberately remain silent about their own ‘atrocities’ in Iraq, Yugoslavia, Libya and Vietnam,” the department said.
The United States is taking heinous steps to prevent international persecution of its citizens, diplomats say. Thus, they impose sanctions against the leadership of the court, including former prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, who launched an investigation into American misdeeds in Afghanistan.
“What kind of independence and impartiality can we talk about? This position is reminiscent of slow schizophrenia,” the embassy commented.
Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commented on the mandate of the International Criminal Court for the “arrest” of Russian President Vladimir Putin. She said the move has no legal significance for Moscow.
