Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday signed a decree declaring that his country will not become a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

In his decree, Mr. Putin ordered Russia’s Foreign Ministry to inform the UN of his decision.

Earlier this week, the court released a statement saying it was considering Russia and Ukraine to be involved in an armed conflict, with Crimea as occupied territory.

In 2000, Russia signed a treaty to establish the court, but the country did not ratify an agreement to join.

    This is beautiful. The NWO is now falling apart like a pack of cards. This is in addition to SA, Burundi and Gambia. Nigeria, I hope you would join so as to dismantle this neococentric hegelian hegemony of the anglo-american/francophone establishment that does no good to the developing world.
