Barack Obama banned from Russia

He’s probably not free to be meaningfully banned from his local grocery store, but nonetheless. Discerning readers will know what a nice chap he’s been. In fact, the article above lists a number of people banned from Russia as a Russian reprisal for sanctions illegally issued against the country. Curiously, it names a lot of people, including Hollywood types, who may … ahem … be on an extended spa visit, stars who may have been affected by that oh-so rare ‘writers’ strike‘. Readers of Real Raw News will understand our point.

We still believe all these ‘moves’ are for public optics, a type of comm.


Here’s a useful 2021 report on the ICC prosecutor Russia is currently going after, who was just taking office at the time —

A reminder that the ICC is not recognized by the US, Russia, China and Israel.


Russia orders arrest of ICC prosecutor

The British lawyer who charged President Vladimir Putin with “war crimes” is now facing charges himself


The Russian Interior Ministry on Friday issued an arrest warrant for Karim Asad Ahmad Khan, the British lawyer currently acting as chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague.

In March, Khan sought the arrest of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Maria Lvova-Belova, the children’s rights commissioner, for the alleged war crime of “unlawful deportation and transfer” of children from “occupied areas of Ukraine” to Russia.

Russia orders arrest of ICC prosecutor


The ICC had acted on claims by the government in Kiev that Russia’s evacuation of children from civilian areas that were under fire from Ukrainian forces amounted to forcible transfer of population, which was defined as a crime under the Fourth Geneva Convention. (ER: And we know what ‘claims’ by the Ukrainian government are worth.)

Three days after Khan’s announcement, on March 20, the Russian Investigative Committee launched a probe into the prosecutor, as well as three ICC judges who approved his warrant – Tomoko Akane, Rosario Salvatore Aitala and Sergio Gerardo Ugalde Godinez. The investigation focused on articles 299 and 360 of the Russian criminal code, namely bringing criminal charges against persons known to be innocent, and preparations for an attack on a representative of a foreign state enjoying international protection in order to complicate international relations.

Moscow has dismissed the ICC warrants against Putin and Lvova-Belova as null and void, as Russia is not a party to the Rome Statute that created the court. Neither are the US, China, India and several dozen other countries.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
