US Senators Pushes Bill to Declare Russia as ‘State Sponsor of Terrorism’

RICHARD BLUMENTHAL (D-Conn.) and LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-S.C.) unveiled new legislation on Wednesday that would circumvent the State Department and impose the dramatic declaration unilaterally.

Their latest move on the subject comes after President JOE BIDEN last week responded with a resounding “no” to a question about whether he intended to add Russia to the state terrorism list, a development that would please Ukraine.

Blumenthal and Graham indicated that they’re not yet sure how they plan to push their legislation through the chamber — whether as a standalone measure or a unanimous-consent request on the Senate floor.
