The International Criminal Court will open two cases against Russian officials over the invasion of Ukraine, a new report has claimed.
The first case involves Russia’s alleged abduction of Ukrainian children, who were then sent for adoption or to re-education camps.
The second case alleges that Russian forces deliberately targeted civilian infrastructure, such as power and water plants, with missile attacks, The New York Times reported on Monday.
The court will seek arrest warrants for several people, the newspaper claimed, citing anonymous current and former court officials. It gave no details of who would be charged and when.
A spokeswoman for the office of ICC prosecutor Karim Khan said it ‘offers no comment about this story.’
