Truth : ICC Did Not Issue Arrest Warrant For President Joe Biden!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by pro-Russia activists, and promoted / shared by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) and pro-CCP netizens, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : This Video Was From July 2022
While this video is being presented as new – “Breaking News!!“, it is actually more than 9 months old.
I traced the video to the opening statement of ICC Chief Prosecutor Karim A. A. Khan QC, which was recorded on July 14, 2022.
Fact #2 : ICC Called For Cooperation Into Ukraine War Crimes Probe
In the original video, ICC Chief Prosecutor Karim Khan was speaking at the Ukraine Accountability Conference in The Hague, where he called for “an overarching strategy” to bring the perpetrators of war crimes in Ukraine to justice.
Just in case you are wondering – the Ukraine Accountability Conference was held to coordinate efforts to create a coherent approach in ensuring accountability for war crimes committed in Ukraine.

Fact #3 : Viral Video Features A Fake “Satire” Voice-Over
The video is real, but the original audio was replaced by a fake “satire” voice-over. Karim Khan spoke English in the original video, so there was no need for a translator.
The fake video creator actually mentioned this in the video’s title, but intentionally made the extra long to reduce visibility of that disclaimer. The fake news creator also mentioned the use of a fake voice-over in the description:
This goes to show just how many people don’t bother to even read the title. Of course, when it comes to pro-Russia and pro-CCP netizens, who cares? If it is anti-America, it must be true.
Fact #4 : It Was Posted By A New “Parody” YouTube Account
The viral video was posted by a new YouTube account created on March 15, 2023. So far, this YouTube channel – AlienJacket, posted seven anti-Western videos – six of which are fake “parody” videos.
The only non-parody video is of Zambian politician Fred M’membe criticising the United States at China’s recent “democracy forum” – the the Second International Forum on Democracy.

Fact #5 : Unknown Who Destroyed Nord Stream 2 Pipelines
It is currently unknown who destroyed the Nord Stream 2 pipelines. As far as plausible reasons go, many countries had plausible reasons to destroy the Nord Stream pipelines:
- US : To prevent allies in Europe from being held hostage by their reliance on cheap Russian gas.
- UK : To encourage allies in Europe to support Ukraine in its fight against the Russian invasion.
- Russia : To stop supplying Europe without breaking its gas supply contracts, and/or to divide Europe.
- Ukraine : To unite Europe against Russia.
While motive is important, it is not evidence that a country has committed the crime. There has to be actual evidence that the US / UK / Russia / Ukraine did it.
Regardless of what armchair experts may claim, there is simply no conclusive evidence YET that any of those countries are responsible for the destruction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines.
Fact #6 : This Is Pro-Russia Propaganda
This is really nothing more than yet another example of pro-Russia propaganda, like these examples:
- Did Germany accuse US of blowing up Nord Stream 2?!
- Did CNN Hide Video Of Ukraine Attacking Donetsk?!
- Was BBC Journalist Pretending To Be In Danger?!
- Does CGTN Video Prove US Blew Up Nord Stream?!
- Did Russia Destroy NATO Jets, Helicopters In Ukraine?!
- Did Mossad Just Admit NATO Is Losing Ukraine War?!
- Are Nazis From Japan Fighting For Ukraine?!
- Did Russia Destroy NATO Arms Convoy To Ukraine?!
