The spokesman of the federal government of Germany, Steffen Gebeshreit, called the threats of the Deputy Head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Medvedev, to launch a missile attack on Berlin "provocations".
This is reported by Ukrinform.
"I have no desire to respond to such provocations," he said.
According to the speaker, such statements "speak for themselves."
Commenting on the words of the German ambassador to Ukraine, Anki Feldhusen, about Berlin's readiness to implement the ICC decision, Medvedev threatened to attack the Bundestag.
"Let's imagine. The current head of a nuclear power came to the territory of, let's say, Germany and was arrested. What it is? Declaration of war on the Russian Federation! And already in this case, all our means will fly to the Bundestag, the chancellor's office, and so on. He understands that this is a casus belli, this is a declaration of war," he said.
Also, the former president and deputy head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Dmytro Medvedev, stated in his Telegram channel that Russia allegedly has the right to use nuclear weapons in the event that Ukraine tries to attack Crimea, which was annexed in 2014.
"It is quite obvious that this is the basis for the application of all means of protection, including those provided for by the doctrine of nuclear deterrence," he said.
Medvedev referred to the nuclear doctrine of the Russian Federation, which states that the country reserves the right to use nuclear weapons if the existence of the state is threatened.
We will remind that on March 17, the International Criminal Court in The Hague issued warrants for the arrest of the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and the children's ombudsman of Russia Maria Lvova-Belova. They are accused of illegally deporting children from Ukraine to the Russian Federation in the period from February 24, 2022.
As the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Andriy Kostin explained, the head of the Kremlin regime can be arrested on the territory of 123 countries that have ratified the Rome Statute.
The Office of the President of Ukraine stated that the ICJ's decision means no negotiations with the current Russian elite and no lifting of sanctions.
