In the video above, Maria Lvova-Belova is seen bragging to Putin that she stole and illegally adopted a child from occupied and later destroyed Mariupol. In all, some reports claim Lvova-Belova has upwards of 23 children herself, earning her the nickname 'Mother Russia' in media reports.

With any luck at all, she'll suffer the same fate as the Nazis who committed war crimes in Ukraine: she'll be hanged.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) issued arrest warrants for Russian President Vladimir Putin and Maria Alekseyevna Lvova-Belova on Friday.

Both face accusations of committing war crimes associated with the Russia-Ukraine war. The ICC alleges that Lvova-Belova and Putin were conducting unlawful deportation of children from Ukraine to the Russian Federation.

Lvova-Belova—who is sometimes referred to as Mother Russia in media reports—works as the Commissioner for Children's Rights for the Russian Federation, a position she's held since her 2021 appointment by Putin. She recently made headlines when she shared information on her Telegram channel that she was helping connect Ukrainian children with Russian parents hoping to adopt them.

In the spring of 2022, Lvova-Belova adopted a Ukrainian teenager into her family. The child came from Mariupol, which had recently been attacked by Russians. She allegedly used the example as a transition that Ukrainian children make when they arrive in Russia. After several months, the Ukrainian child begins to "love" Russia.
