No, Biden told reporters at the White House when asked if Russia should be designated a state sponsor of terrorism. Last month, Russia again warned the United States against steps that could lead to a breakdown in diplomatic relations.
If this occurs (to designate Russia as a sponsor of terrorism), it will mean that Washington has reached a point of no return, said TASS news agency Alexander Dariyev, head of the North American Department at the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Moscow informed the American side about this, the diplomat added.
The resolution calling for the designation of Russia as a sponsor of terrorism was adopted by the US Senate on the 27th of April due to the Russian attack in Ukraine, Georgia, Syria and Ukraine, which caused the death of women and children. In April, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi called on the White House of Biden to put Russia on the black list of countries sponsoring terrorism.
At the beginning of August, the Russian diplomat Marija Zakharovov threatened the relationship between Peru and the United States. They should know that we are prepared for any development of the situation. If Washington decides to completely stop cooperation with Moscow, we will accept it, she added.
Dariyev also warned against any confiscation of Russian assets by the United States. According to him, this step would completely change bilateral relations between Washington and Moscow.
Russia’s relations with the West deteriorated sharply after Russia invaded Ukraine on November 24. Moscow consistently describes its aggression against a neighboring country as a special military operation, which, according to it, aims to liberate the neighboring country.
The fall responded to this move with unprecedented economic, financial and diplomatic sanctions against Russia, including the freezing of about half of Russia’s gold and foreign exchange reserves. Their value before the 24th standard reached 640 billion dollars, the Reuters agency wrote.
