Moscow puts Zelensky on wanted list

Moscow puts Zelensky on wanted list

(Moscow) Russia has launched a wanted notice against Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, without making its intent public, a notice that Kiev deems “useless,” according to an announcement on the Interior Ministry’s website on Saturday.

The president is wanted “under an article of the Penal Code,” we read in this short text, which says nothing else about the nature of the charges.

Since February 2022, Russia has been leading an offensive against Ukraine, presenting it specifically as a struggle against “Nazi” power.

Volodymyr Zelensky is particularly targeted by Russian authorities. The day after his offensive began, President Vladimir Putin called on the Ukrainian military to oust him.

Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Mr. The wanted notice against Zelensky “revealed the desperation of the Russian propaganda and state machine, not knowing what to find to attract attention.”

The ministry recalled that Vladimir Putin himself is the subject of an arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for the alleged “deportation” of thousands of Ukrainian children to Russia.

This order is “genuine”, unlike “useless Russian declarations”, Ukrainian diplomacy is rated.

According to the Russian database, wanted notices were also issued against Oleksandr Pavlyuk, commander of Kiev’s ground forces, and former president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.

The list of people wanted by Russia is quite extensive and includes Russian or foreign dignitaries, especially Ukrainians.

In February, the name of Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas was added, along with other officials from the Baltic states.

To justify this decision, the Kremlin invoked an opposing view of history held by Moscow and these states.

The Baltic states, fearful of the Kremlin’s military ambitions, consider themselves occupied by the Soviet Union, while Moscow sees itself as a liberator and views any other approach as a “falsification of history,” a crime in Russia.
