The US Congress is currently working on an alternative to recognizing Russia as a "state sponsor of terrorism." Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announced this on CNN.
"We are constantly looking at what measures we can take to increase the pressure. We are currently working with Congress on regulations that will help us with some of the contentious aspects of designating Russia as a "state sponsor of terrorism," which would have unintended consequences. We are working on developing a way to achieve this goal," said Blinken.
Earlier, the US Senate called on the State Department to recognize Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism. The resolution, which has a non-binding nature, was adopted during a vote on the evening of July 27.
