Russia withdraws from International criminal court
Russia says that it will come out of the International criminal court (ICC) in accordance with the Directive, signed by President Vladimir Putin.

The Russian foreign Ministry said that the ICC "failed to meet expectations, to become a truly independent, authoritative international Tribunal". The foreign Ministry has called the ICC "ineffective", adding that "within 14 years of the court's work it closed only four cases, spending over a billion dollars." Russia also criticized the appeal court in five-day conflict country with neighbouring Georgia in 2008, saying "We can hardly trust the ICC in such a situation."

The press-Secretary of the ICC Fadi El Abdallah said in a statement that "membership of the Rome Statute is a voluntary and sovereign decision is the prerogative of all States," adding, "the ICC respected the sovereignty of other States."

In accordance with the Directive on Wednesday, President Putin instructed the foreign Ministry to inform the UN Secretary General that Russia is not going to be a state party to the Rome Statute of the international criminal court. Russia signed the Treaty in 2000 but has not ratified it. The Rome Statute has been ratified by 123 countries.

In addition, the United States signed the Treaty, but under the Bush administration, this 2002 the United Nations declared that he did not have "any intention" of ratification.

Based in the Hague, Netherlands, the ICC includes 124 States from around the world. This "court of last resort" and decides four types of crimes: genocide, crimes against humanity, crimes of aggression and war crimes.

The ICC has published a damning verdict on Russia's actions in neighbouring Crimea. In the report, the ICC said on Monday that "the situation in Crimea and Sevastopol is in fact a continued occupation". Russia annexed the territory of Crimea, the former Soviet Republic of Ukraine, in 2014. World leaders managed to establish a shaky peace agreement in 2015. But the violence continues in the conflict zone in Eastern Ukraine.

French President Francois Hollande also said last month that Russia is guilty of war crimes in Syria. Putin canceled a trip to Paris after Hollande said on French TF1 TV channel that Syria and Russia has committed war crimes and should be prosecuted in the International criminal court. Russia is carrying out air strikes in Syria since September 2015 in coordination with the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
