Russia has withdrawn from the ICC – but with Donald Trump in the White House, it makes no difference

18 Nov

There was no particular surprise about the timing of Russia’s announcement that it was cutting links with the International Criminal Court. It came a day after the organisation’s chief prosecutor had classified the Kremlin’s annexation of the Crimea as an occupation and held that Russia was militarily involved in the separatist conflict in the Ukraine. The move also comes amid repeated charges from human rights organisations and Western governments that Russia has committed war crimes in its bombing campaign in Syria and demands for the court (the ICC) to launch an investigation.
