Russia has added Piotr Hofmanski, the president of the International Criminal Court (ICC), to its wanted list months after the organization issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin on alleged war crimes in Ukraine, according to reports.
A notice in the Russian interior ministry database showed that Hofmanski was placed on the wanted list, though it did not specify any details on allegations, according to the Russian state-run news website TASS.
“Hofmanski Piotr Jozef, Polish. Wanted under an article of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation,” the notice said, according to Agence France-Presse.
In March, the ICC issued an arrest warrant for Putin and Russia’s Children’s Rights Commissioner Maria Lvova-Belova, alleging they had been deporting Ukrainian children to Russia since invading the country.
