The deputy chairman of the Security Council commented on the statement by the head of the German Ministry of Justice, Marco Bushman, that Russian President Vladimir Putin will be arrested if he arrives in Germany.

Dmitry Medvedev said that this step would actually be a declaration of war on Moscow.

"Let's imagine — it's clear that this is a situation that will never be realized, yes — but nevertheless, let's imagine that it has been realized. The current head of the nuclear state came to the territory of, let's say, Germany and was arrested. What's it? The declaration of war of the Russian Federation!", - wrote the deputy chairman of the Security Council in his TG channel.

He also threatened the Germans that if Bushman's words become reality, all the means of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation "will fly to the Bundestag, to the chancellor's office, and so on."

"Does he understand that this is a casus belli, that this is a declaration of war? Or did he study poorly?", - the deputy chairman wondered.

At the same time, he called Bushman a "jerk" and a "half-wit", and regarding the decision of the International Criminal Court to issue an arrest warrant for Putin, he said that this creates "enormous negative potential".

The deputy chairman of the Security Council admitted that today's Western leaders are unpleasant to him, but, nevertheless, he is confident that the situation will come to balance and recovery "sooner or later", and by this time most Western leaders will already "retire". Before that, Medvedev had already criticized the ICC more harshly, calling it "shitty" and saying that now Russia, which is a nuclear power, can launch a missile attack on the ICC building. 

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, as well as American leader Joe Biden, welcomed the actions of the prosecutor and judges of the ICC. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia does not submit to the jurisdiction of the ICC, he called the actions of this court "hostile".

According to the head of the Ministry of Justice of Germany, Marko Bushman, the ICC will soon contact Interpol about the accusations against the President of Russia. Then Germany will have to arrest the head of the Russian Federation in the event of his visit to the country.
