Spokesperson: "US Senate panel advances bill to consider Russia as sponsor of terrorism"

The US Senate Foreign Relations Committee has advanced a bill to consider designating Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism, a committee spokesperson said on Wednesday, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

"Everything was passed with the exception for S. 482 [Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act of 2019]," the spokesperson said.

Last week, US Under Secretary of State David Hale told a Senate panel that the State Department had not determined that Russia was a state sponsor of terrorism and recalled that it had like the United States fallen victim to terrorist attacks.

The United States currently defines as state sponsors of terrorism four countries - Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.
