MADRID, Spain.- The Cuban government once again sided with its Russian ally, condemned worldwide for the invasion of Ukraine. On this occasion, the regime dismissed the warrant against Vladimir Putin, issued in recent days by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for being responsible for war crimes committed in Ukraine.

“The arrest warrant against President Vladimir Putin issued by the ICC lacks binding legal impact for Russia, a country that is not part of the Statute of that body, and does not contribute to a serious, constructive and realistic diplomatic solution to the current crisis in Europe,” said Miguel Díaz-Canel in Twitter.

In comments to the tweet of the Cuban ruler, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez added: “Initiatives like this one take away the possibility of a peaceful and negotiated solution to the conflict in Europe, and do not contribute to the stability or security of the region.”

While the head of the Department of International Relations of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC), Emilio Lozada, declared: “Our @PCCParty rejects the politically motivated and ‘double standard’ decision of the International Criminal Court to issue an arrest warrant against the president #RussiaVladimir Putin, which constitutes a flagrant violation of the principles of International Law”.

Last Friday, when issuing the arrest warrant, the International Criminal Court based in The Hague, Netherlands, assured that Putin is responsible for the “war crime” of illegal deportation of children and illegal transfer of children from Ukraine to Russia.

Through a statement, the ICC said: “There are reasonable grounds to believe that Putin has individual criminal responsibility for the crimes mentioned above.”

Likewise, the international organization pointed out that the Russian president failed to “exercise adequate control over civilian and military subordinates who committed the acts, or allowed their commission, and who were under his effective authority and control.”

Since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Cuban government has remained on their side. One of the most recent tokens of supportfor convenience, was to have abstained last February in a vote before the United Nations General Assembly in which a majority approved a resolution calling for the “immediate withdrawal” of Russian troops from Ukraine.
