Medvedev threatens to strike court in The Hague with Oniks hypersonic missile

Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia, has threatened to launch a missile strike against the International Criminal Court in The Hague, which had earlier issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin in connection with the deportation of Ukrainian children to Russia.

“Gentlemen, everyone walks under God and missiles. It is quite possible to imagine the targeted use of hypersonic Oniks from the North Sea by a Russian ship at The Hague court building. Unfortunately, it cannot be shot down. And the court is just a poor international organization, not the population of a NATO country. That’s why they won’t start a war. They are afraid. And no one will feel sorry for them. So, judges of the court, look carefully at the sky”, - writes Medvedev on Telegram.

Medvedev went on to write several paragraphs of insults to the ICC, which, according to the Russian official, “no one needs” and whose effectiveness is allegedly “zero”.
