U.S. Senate calls for State Department to designate Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism

The U.S. Senate has unanimously adopted a nonbinding resolution calling on the U.S. Department of State to designate the Russian Federation as a state sponsor of terrorism.

According to The New York Times, the Senate in the resolution calls for Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken to designate Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism for actions in Chechnya, Georgia, Syria and Ukraine that resulted “in the deaths of countless innocent men, women and children.”

“Armed forces of the Russian Federation have committed numerous summary executions against innocent civilians and have attempted to cover their atrocities with mass graves across Ukraine,” the Senate bill reads.

It is noted that a similar measure had been introduced in the House, where Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to be a strong supporter of its passage. However, the power to designate a state sponsor of terror resides with the Department of State.

As reported by Ukrinform, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky on June 27 called for the United States to designate Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism.

  1. To all Ukrainians Happy Statehood Day! 🇺🇦

    On July 28, 2022, Ukraine celebrates a newly-introduced holiday — the Day of Ukrainian Statehood — for the first time. Almost a year ago, during the celebration of Independence Day, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, announced a new national holiday. Today Ukrainians also celebrate the Day of the Baptism of Kyivan Rus.

  2. Designating mafia land as a state sponsor of terrorism should have happened several years ago already. It’s not only that, it’s a fascist crime syndicate and a complete shithole in every respect.
