MADRID, 19 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The US State Department has indicated this Monday that they are studying the possibility of including Russia on the list of countries that sponsor terrorism.
“We are studying the facts. We are reviewing the law. If it is the responsibility of this agency or another, if it is effective and appropriate,…”, State Department spokesman Ned Price told CNN.
The North American list currently includes North Korea, Iran, Cuba and Syria. By definition it is a country that “has repeatedly supported acts of international terrorism,” according to the State Department itself.
Price has stated that the latest Russian attacks represent “a campaign of terror” against Ukraine. “Russia, more than an invasion, more than starting a war, has launched a campaign of terror, a campaign of brutality, a campaign of unfortunate aggression against the people of Ukraine,” she pointed out.
Thus, he has mentioned the recent attack on Lviv, the deaths of civilians on the outskirts of kyiv and the attacks on Mariupol or Kharkov. “These are clear indications, an evident testimony of the campaign of brutality, of the campaign of terror, that the Russians have unleashed against the people of Ukraine,” he stressed.
