Ukrainian President, Zelenskyy On Russia’s Wanted List

The incumbent President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy has been placed on a wanted list by the Russian government.

Sunday Telegraph gathered that the Russian Interior Ministry database showed President Zelenskyy was on a wanted list but gave no further details.

This was as Russia opened a criminal case against Zelenskyy.

Reacting to the development, Ukraine dismissed the report, describing it as evidence of Moscow’s “desperation”.

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry said Russian President Vladimir Putin was himself subject to arrest under an International Criminal Court warrant.

The statement said: “We would like to remind you that, unlike the worthless Russian announcements, an International Criminal Court warrant for the arrest of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin on suspicion of war crimes is quite real and subject to implementation in 123 countries.”

According to the ministry, the Russian announcement was “evidence of the desperation of the Russian state machine and propaganda, which can think of no other way to attract attention”.

In February 2022, Russia issued arrest warrants for a number of Ukrainian and other European politicians.

Russian police in February put Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas, Lithuania’s culture minister and members of the previous Latvian parliament on a wanted list for destroying Soviet-era monuments.
