Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in Kyrgyzstan on his first official visit to a foreign nation since the Ukraine invasion.

Putin’s visit is significant as the International Criminal Court had issued an arrest warrant for him for committing crimes in Ukraine.

Putin arrives amid arrest warrant

Puti arrived in Kyrgyzstan to attend a two-day Commonwealth of Independent States summit.

Putin emphasized bilateral trade and investment opportunities amid speculations that he is losing regional influence.

Can Putin be arrested?

Legally speaking, Putin can be arrested if he travels to a country that recognizes the ICC.

But that seems quite impossible, as detaining a President will be considered an act of war. Countries can ask Putin not to come as they must abide by international rules.
