Brussels. Taking a historic step, the European Union Parliament on Wednesday declared Russia a ‘state sponsoring terrorism’. European MPs voted in favor of a resolution declaring Russia a state sponsor of terrorism. Simultaneously, EU leaders said Moscow’s military attacks on civilian targets such as energy infrastructure, hospitals, schools and shelters violate international law.
However, this EU move is largely symbolic as the EU does not have any legal framework to support it. The union has already imposed unprecedented sanctions on Russia over its invasion of Ukraine. Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has urged the United States and other countries to declare Russia a ‘state sponsor of terrorism’.
Zelensky has accused the Russian army of targeting the citizens of Ukraine, which Moscow denied. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has so far refused to put Russia in the list of ‘country sponsoring terrorism’ despite proposals in both houses of Congress.
The US State Department currently designates four countries – Cuba, North Korea, Iran and Syria – as state sponsors of terrorism, which means these countries are subject to defense export embargoes and financial sanctions. In the European Union, the parliaments of four countries – Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland – have so far named Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism, according to the European Parliamentary Research Service.
