There's no statute of limitations on war crimes. I wouldn't automatically assume they will never be held responsible for them. If Putin is deposed and removed from power, he and the members of their military might be held to account.

Yeah I’m not holding my breath for that.

I'm sure you would have held the same sentiment about Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany back in 1943.

Was pretty obvious the Allies would eventually overcome Nazi Germany and be in a position to arrest war criminals though. Today, there is no chance any of us are invading Russia and arresting them. It’s a totally different scenario.

Little different when the Nazis had concentration and death camps killing millions of people and committing genocide but you right, you right. Totes same thing. 🤣

The real tragedy is that if it gets to that point, he will more than likely hold the nuclear option over everyone’s head.

At that point, don’t be surprised if he’s disappeared. The CIA and friends would more than likely prefer to whisk him away and offer him a lifetime of protection in exchange for him to give up.

Its definitely unjust, but the nuclear alternative is even worse. It could also come with the benefit of a denuclearized Russia. the west promises Russians money, and we take the nukes off their hands.
