Russia has officially listed Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, as a wanted individual.

According to the state news agency TASS, the Russian Interior Ministry’s database indicates that Zelenskyy is on a wanted list, although specific details were not provided.

As Russia initiated a criminal case against Zelenskyy, the news of his addition to the wanted list surfaced through the state news agency TASS.

In response, Ukraine rejected the report, labeling it as a sign of Moscow’s desperation. Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry countered by highlighting that Russian President Vladimir Putin himself faces potential arrest under an International Criminal Court warrant. They emphasized that unlike Russia’s unsubstantiated claims, the ICC warrant against Putin for suspected war crimes is legitimate and enforceable in 123 countries.

The ministry viewed the Russian announcement as a clear indication of the Russian state machine’s desperation and reliance on propaganda, suggesting that they had resorted to such tactics as they couldn’t find any other means to garner attention.

Back in February 2022, Russia had issued arrest warrants for several Ukrainian and European politicians.

In February, Russian authorities placed Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas, Lithuania’s culture minister, and former members of the Latvian parliament on a wanted list for their alleged involvement in the destruction of Soviet-era monuments.
