U.S. Senate Calls on State Department to Designate Russia a Terrorist Sponsor

Jun 25, 2024

The US State Department has commented on a proposal by senators to recognize Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism after Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin signed a partnership agreement with the DPRK.

According to Yevropeiska Pravda, State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said this at a briefing.


According to him, the State Department believes that there are more effective ways to hold Russia accountable for its actions than to grant it this status.

"And that's why we continue to take these measures, imposing sanctions on Russian officials, Russian companies, imposing export controls that weaken the Russian military machine, and we will continue to take these steps," the State Department spokesman said.

In addition, as Miller pointed out, recognizing Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism could have a number of negative consequences.

He added that the United States is concerned about the deepening cooperation between Russia and the DPRK, including Russia's actions that violate numerous UN Security Council resolutions.

"And we will continue to make that clear, and continue to work with our allies in the region to respond to that," Miller summarized.
