Bringing former US president George W. Bush before the court

Bush before the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity, Lenta.ru reports. Churkin is currently the chairman of the UN Security Council. Keyter brought a case against the former US president, as well as former attorney general Alberto Gonzalez and former CIA director Robert Mueller, in the ICC previously, but the case was rejected because the United States does not recognize the court.
