kyiv denounces Putin's "cynicism" after visit to Mariupol

Ukraine on Sunday denounced the "cynicism" of Russian President Vladimir Putin after his surprise visit to the city of Mariupol, captured last year by Moscow forces, and denounced that he made it at night as a "thief".

"The criminal always returns to the scene of the crime (...) the murderer of thousands of families in Mariupol came to admire the ruins of the city and (their) graves. Cynicism and lack of remorse," wrote the presidential adviser Ukrainian Mikhailo Podoliak on Twitter.

The EU seeks to promote measures to speed up the delivery of ammunition to Ukraine

The EU foreign and defense ministers expect to close a political agreement tomorrow on a plan to speed up the manufacture and delivery of ammunition to Ukraine, as well as undertake joint procurement and increase the production capacity of the European defense industry.

The heads of Foreign Affairs and Defense will meet with an objective in Brussels but diplomatic sources do not rule out that the political pact will be reached today in a meeting of the ambassadors of the countries before the EU.

The first path of the plan proposes to deliver to Ukraine as soon as possible the ammunition reserves, mainly 155 mm, that the community countries already have or that they have already commissioned from the industry and for this, the high representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell has proposed using 1,000 million euros from the European Peace Support Fund (FEAP).

The FEAP is a program that, outside the community budget and made up of contributions from the Member States, is being used to finance the delivery of arms to kyiv.

To secure additional support for Ukraine and guarantee EU countries that their arsenals will be replenished, the plan's second track calls for the European Defense Agency to make joint purchases of 155mm ammunition or for at least three member states to partner up. to carry out those acquisitions.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has visited the port city of Mariupol, Russian state news agencies said on Sunday morning.

It would be his first trip to Ukrainian territory that Moscow illegally annexed in September.

Putin traveled to Crimea, a short distance southwest of Mariupol, on Saturday to celebrate the ninth anniversary of the annexation of the Ukrainian Black Sea peninsula.

Mariupol became an international symbol of defiance when Ukrainian forces, outnumbered and outgunned, held out at a local steel mill for three months until Russia finally took control of the steel plant in May.

The visits, in which he was shown chatting with residents of Mariupol and visiting a children's center and art school in Crimea, were a challenge from the Russian president a few days after the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant against Putin. , whom he accused of war crimes.

Putin has not commented on the arrest warrant, which aggravates his international isolation, though it is unlikely he will face trial anytime soon.

Putin arrived in Mariupol by helicopter and then drove himself to tour "monumental places" in the city, the concert hall and the coast, according to Russian reports.

Turquía anuncia una extensión del acuerdo de granos de Ucrania

El presidente turco, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, anunció el sábado la prolongación del acuerdo que permite la exportación de granos de Ucrania, negociado con la mediación de Ankara y Naciones Unidas tras la invasión rusa a ese país para aliviar la crisis alimentaria global.

Ucrania era uno de los principales exportadores mundiales de granos antes de la guerra y esa situación atizó un alza de los precios de los alimentos en todos los continentes.

"Tras conversaciones con las dos partes, aseguramos la extensión del acuerdo que debía expirar el 19 de marzo", informó el mandatario turco en un discurso televisivo. El ministro ucraniano de Infraestructuras, Oleksandr Kubrakov, informó que el acuerdo fue prolongado durante 120 días.

"Quienes creen que es imposible" que el líder ruso rinda cuentas "no entienden la historia", aseguró Khan en declaraciones a la cadena CNN, y pidió recordar juicios contra criminales de guerra como los nazis, el expresidente yugoslavo Slobodan Milosevic, o el exlíder liberiano Charles Taylor, entre otros. "Todos ellos eran individuos fuertes y poderosos y, sin embargo, se encontraron en los tribunales", agregó.

Khan señaló también que, mediante la orden de detención contra Putin y contra Maria Alekseyevna Lvova-Belova, comisaria presidencial para los Derechos de la Infancia en Rusia, se quiere enviar un mensaje claro: "Nadie debe sentir que puede cometer un genocidio o crímenes contra la humanidad con impunidad".

La orden de arresto contra Putin es un paso hacia la Justicia, dice Amnistía Internacional 

La orden de arresto emitida por la Corte Penal Internacional (CPI) contra el presidente ruso, Vladímir Putin, por la deportación ilegal a Rusia de niños ucranianos, supone un paso hacia la Justicia para las víctimas de crímenes de guerra en Ucrania, señaló la organización Amnistía Internacional (AI).

La CPI emitió este viernes esa orden contra Putin y contra María Lvova-Belova, Comisionada para los Derechos del Niño en la Oficina del Presidente de Rusia, que afronta la misma acusación.

La secretaria general de AI, Agnès Callamard, señaló que la orden es "una señal importante", tanto para Ucrania como para el resto del mundo, de que los presuntos responsables de delitos en Ucrania "serán arrestados y juzgados", sin importar el poder que tengan.

"El presidente Putin es ahora oficialmente un hombre buscado. Tras la acusación de la CPI del presidente Putin y la comisionada de la Infancia Lvova-Belova por el crimen de guerra de traslado forzoso de niños, la comunidad internacional no debe detenerse ante nada hasta que sean arrestados y llevados a juicio", agregó Callamard en un comunicado divulgado por la organización humanitaria.

"Si el presidente Putin o Lvova-Belova abandonan Rusia, los Estados deben negarles un refugio seguro arrestándolos de inmediato y entregándolos a la CPI", puntualizó.

Fiscal de la CPI cree que Putin irá al banquillo de los acusados

El fiscal de la Corte Penal Internacional (CPI), Karim Khan, ve posible que el presidente de Rusia, Vladímir Putin, enfrente un juicio por presuntos crímenes de guerra, según dijo este viernes en una entrevista con la cadena CNN.

"Quienes creen que es imposible" que el líder ruso rinda cuentas por los actos cometidos en Ucrania "no entienden la historia", aseguró Khan en declaraciones al medio estadounidense.

El fiscal citó como ejemplos los Juicios de Núremberg (1945-1946) -por los crímenes de guerra en la Alemania nazi- y el proceso judicial por el genocidio de Ruanda.

"Todos ellos (implicaron a) individuos poderosos e imponentes y, sin embargo, acabaron en los tribunales", agregó Khan.

¿Puede la Corte Penal Internacional detener a Vladimir Putin?

Vladimir Putin con Maria Lvova-Belova, comisionada presidencial para los Derechos de la Infancia en Rusia. La CPI pidió la detención de ambos.

Después de que la Corte Penal Internacional (CPI) emitió el viernes una orden de arresto contra Vladimir Putin por crímenes de guerra en Ucrania, surge la interrogante de si es posible que el presidente ruso vaya a estar algún día en el banquillo de los acusados en La Haya.

Los 123 países que firmaron el Estatuto de Roma están obligados a ejecutar los mandatos de detención contra Putin y María Lvova-Belova, comisionada presidencial para los Derechos de la Infancia en Rusia, también objeto de una orden de arresto.

The arrest occurred in the event that one of the two travels to one of these countries. "It's true," ICC prosecutor Karim Khan told AFP, when asked if Putin could be arrested.

But the Court founded after the Rome Statute does not have its own police force.

The execution of the mandates "depends on international cooperation", according to the president of the ICC, the Polish jurist Piotr Hofmanski.

Another key fact is that neither Russia nor Ukraine are members of the ICC.
