This from people who have fought multiple wars on the side of al-Qaeda

The US Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved a bill recognizing Russia as a “sponsor of terrorism.” This was announced by the director of public relations and press of the chairman of the committee Susanne Ress.

According to her, the initiative “obliges the Secretary of State to determine whether the Russian Federation should be considered a country – the sponsor of terrorism.”

In addition, the document is about declaring armed groups in eastern Ukraine to be foreign terrorist organizations.

Now the project will be considered by the Senate in full force. If the document is adopted, the head of the Department of State must submit a decision to the legislator within 90 days.
