“The bill on designation Russia as “a state sponsor of terrorism” is a top-down initiative. Once again, US senators are trying to say bright is dark. It was the US policy in the Middle East trying to change unwanted regimes that actually had helped to create ISIS. And so far, Washington continues to accommodate terrorists in Syria to achieve the same goals,” the Chairman of the Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutskiy Slutskiy Leonid Eduardoviсh Slutskiy

He stressed that ”Russia has had to fight the forces of international terrorism within the country and, as well as, at the external borders.“

“The Russian army continues to assist in the elimination of terrorist centers in Syrian territory. And calling our country “a state sponsor of terrorism” is dishonorable and irresponsible in that case. This is a blatant imposition of political lies the same way that the history of World War II is being rewritten and falsified today,” the parliamentarian stressed.
