Diplomatic immunity was forfeited when he committed an act of war against Moldova directly in the Moldovan jurisdiction. Not only that, he is also liable for prosecution as a war criminal under the international laws, including those of the United Nations. He could one day end up before an international tribunal as a defendant for his role in the incitement of a war of aggression by Russia. His offense is one of the most grave which can be committed by a diplomat.
