Putin Will Not Be Arrested In Brazil, Says Brazilian President Assures Amid Ukraine War Crime Warrant

Putin Will Not Be Arrested In Brazil, Says Brazilian Preside

Brazilian President Luiz Luka

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, during an interview at the G20 meeting in Delhi, asserted that Russian President Vladimir Putin would be invited to the upcoming G20 event in Rio de Janeiro.

Lula's statement took a proactive stance on Putin's attendance, emphasizing that under his presidency, there would be no possibility of Putin's arrest while in Brazil.

“I believe that Putin can go easily to Brazil,” Lula said. “What I can say to you is that if I’m president of Brazil, and he comes to Brazil, there’s no way he will be arrested.”

Lula's commitment to ensuring Putin's safety is particularly noteworthy due to the International Criminal Court's (ICC) issuance of an arrest warrant against Putin.

The warrant, dated March of this year, accuses Putin of committing war crimes by illegally deporting hundreds of children from Ukraine.

Russia has consistently denied allegations of war crimes and the forcible deportation of Ukrainian children.

The situation is further complicated by Brazil's status as a signatory to the Rome Statute, which established the ICC.

Lula's statement represents a complex intersection of international diplomacy, legal obligations, and the dynamics of the G20 summit.
