William Muck provided a political update on arrest warrants for both Putin and Trump

In recent weeks, the political stage has been busy with breaking news both on a national and international scale. From the International Criminal Court issuing an arrest warrant for Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to former President Donald Trump’s indictment, politics continues to be a ‘hot button topic’ for many.

William Muck, professor and chair of the political science department at North Central College, interviewed with host Joan Esposito of WCPT 820-AM Radio, where he discussed various political topics that have been capturing the attention of media headlines.

“For the listeners who have been following the updates in Ukraine, you’re aware of the allegations of ‘war crimes’ this isn’t anything new,” said Muck. “What’s unique here, though, is the international criminal court issued an arrest warrant specifically for Vladimir Putin for the crime of abduction and deportation of children from Ukraine. There has been a long standing policy since the war begun of removing children from Ukraine bringing them to Russia, which is in clear violation of international law”
