Armenia’s parliament votes to join the International Criminal Court, straining ties with ally Russia

  • Armenia's parliament ratified the founding statute of the International Criminal Court, subjecting itself to the jurisdiction of the court in The Hague, a move that may strain its alliance with Russia.
  • Joining the ICC means Armenia could potentially arrest Russian President Vladimir Putin if he sets foot in the country due to an arrest warrant issued by the court. This move is seen as a response to war crimes committed by Azerbaijan, rather than being aimed directly at Russia.
  • The strained relationship between Armenia and Russia is a result of Moscow's invasion of Ukraine and its inaction during the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, where Azerbaijan recaptured the region.
