The Ukrainian president arrived Thursday morning at the headquarters of the International Criminal Court (ICC), which issued an arrest warrant against Russian President Vladimir Putin in March. A surprise visit to the Netherlands framed by critical security measures, Mr. Zelensky arrived at the body’s headquarters in The Hague around 10 a.m., observed by a reporter from Agence France-Presse.

Dressed in his usual green robes and many of his staff in combat gear, the Ukrainian president was greeted by head of jurisdiction Piotr Hofmansky and other top officials. A Ukrainian flag was hoisted next to the ICC banner. Created in 2002 to try some of the world’s worst atrocities, the ICC began investigating crimes in Ukraine soon after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
