Russia puts Ukraine’s Zelensky on wanted list

# Russia’s state news agency reports the country has opened a criminal case against Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky and put him on a wanted list. Ukraine has dismissed the announcement as evidence of Moscow’s “desperation”. Ukraine’s foreign ministry reportedly noted Russian president Vladimir Putin was himself subject to arrest under an International Criminal Court warrant. Russia has issued arrest warrants for several Ukrainian and other European politicians since February 2022. It also issued an arrest warrant for the International Criminal Court prosecutor who last year prepared Putin’s war crimes warrant.
