In an interview with Tagesspiegel on April 11, Karoline Edtstadler, minister of EU affairs and the constitution in the Austrian government, confirmed that handcuffs are waiting for Putin on the territory of her state.
"Austria will comply with its obligations under international law and criminal law. I was a criminal judge in my civilian job and the issuing and issuing this international arrest warrant from the ICC means that if he sets foot on Austrian soil, an arrest must be made," Karoline Edtstadler.
We remind you that arrest warrants are indefinite, and Putin/Lvova-Belova will be prosecuted to the end: to a tribunal or death in a bunker.
Austria is a military-neutral state, therefore, it does not transfer weapons to Ukraine. However, Ukraine received vast humanitarian and economic assistance from this state. Moreover, Austria participated in the NATO Heavenly Shield project and does not interfere with EU payments, although it has the right to do so under the Irish amendment.
"What does neutrality prevent us from doing? It does not prevent us from acting politically as we see fit and supporting Ukraine," Karoline Edtstadler.
