Keywords: international criminal justice; aggression; restoration of peace; International Criminal Court; state criminal jurisdiction; armed conflict

This paper argues that, due to its conceptual and functional features, the international criminal justice proves unable to stop the Russian aggression against Ukraine.

Moreover, a series of obstacles prevent the International Criminal Court to exercise its jurisdiction over the Russian political and military leadership. Not even state jurisdiction, which is only pursuing minor members of one side of the conflict, seems able to bring the aggression to an end
