In late July, Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives, urged the State Department to declare Russia a state sponsor of terrorism at the same time that the Senate was considering a similar initiative.
“The Senate resolution introduced by Senators Lindsey Graham and Richard Blumenthal, is non-binding, but the senators believe it will have an impact on Blinken. During a visit to Kiev earlier this month, Graham and Blumenthal offered Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky a framed copy of the resolution.”
The Russian Foreign Ministry made it perfectly clear: “In this context, I would like to clarify the legislative initiative being debated in Congress to declare Russia a ‘state sponsor of terrorism.’ If this initiative is carried out, it will mean that Washington has crossed a point of no return, causing the most serious possible collateral damage to bilateral diplomatic relations, even downgrading or breaking them,” Russian spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
Blinken is resisting a decision that could force him to sanction U.S. allies doing business with Russia and could stifle the last vestiges of diplomacy between Washington and Moscow.
The issue is symbolic. The level of sanctions imposed on Russia is equivalent to what it would suffer from being designated as a state supporting terrorism, so it makes no practical sense. Should we or should we not break all bridges, practice scorched earth policy and destroy any chance of a relative normalization of international relations? Should international relations be reduced to confrontational relations for years to come? That is what is at stake.
Washington’s hitman countries have already embarked on this line. On Thursday, the Latvian Parliament called Russia a “state sponsor of terrorism,” whose actions in Ukraine constitute “targeted genocide against the Ukrainian people,” in a statement posted on its website, immediately welcomed by Kiev.
It is quite possible that the United States will initially act through the countries of Eastern Europe, absolutely colonized, whose ruling elites are domesticated. These countries will continue to drag along some Western European countries, the most powerless, such as Spain.
Logically, the support, financing, training and arming of neo-Nazi groups in Ukraine, which commit crimes against the civilian population, does not pose any problem either to the United States or to their European hired assassins.
