(ANSA) - ROME, MARCH 20 - The Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev in a post on Telegram announced the beginning of a "gloomy sunset" for the entire system of international relations referring to the arrest warrant of the International Criminal Court (CPI) for President Vladimir Putin.
Medvedev, quoted by Rossiya 24 TV, recalled that "everyone walks under God and missiles" and admitted the possibility of imagining "a spot use of the Onyx hypersonic missile" from a Russian ship on the International Criminal Court building in The Hague.
In this situation, he said, the population of Natonon countries would suffer and the bloc would be afraid of going to war.
"There is a complete prejudice and dictatorship of a group of Anglo-Saxon countries," Medvedev said, but "an equal has no power over an equal."
"Nobody needs" the International Criminal Court which brought only "three dozen unknowns" to justice, he noted.
"The effectiveness of their activities is zero. These are not the ad hoc Nuremberg and Tokyo tribunals. Or even the dubious tribunal for Yugoslavia," he wrote, explaining that in his view the leader of a country can only be judged if the country" savagely weakened" and almost lost his sovereignty, or lost the war and capitulated.
And furthermore, as regards US crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq, the ICC has proved impotent.
Medvedev defined the consequences of issuing a warrant from the ICC for Putin's arrest as monstrous: "Now no one will go to any international body, everyone will negotiate with each other", "all the decisions of the United Nations and other structures will fall apart".
