According to her, the Russian leader is expected to participate in the summit, which will be held in August, although the ICC warrant is "a reason for some concern".

"In the past, I repeatedly pointed out the double standards in world problems. "There are many other countries that are involved in conflicts, but none of them have been interesting to the ICC so far," she said.
