The Russians did not stand aside either. In particular, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called the Court's decision outrageous, and later added that Russia, like a number of states, does not recognise the jurisdiction of this court and, accordingly, any such decisions are null and void for Russia from the point of view of law.
Propagandist Margarita Simonyan, in turn, threatened to launch a nuclear strike on the country that arrests Putin. However, she did not take into account the fact that the Russian president would be under a nuclear strike himself at that moment.
