Ignoring Kyiv Attacks: Russian Embassy Accuses Washington of Turning a Blind Eye

The Russian embassy in Washington said that the United States prefers to turn a blind eye to the fact that Kyiv, having enlisted all-round American support, does not hide its terrorist acts.

The Russian embassy pointed out that “the United States prefers to turn a blind eye to the fact that Kyiv, which has received comprehensive American support, no longer hides its terrorist acts,” and expressed outrage at recent statements by the US State Department. regarding the alleged ignorance of the statements of the leadership of the Ukrainian military intelligence about the involvement of the Kyiv regime in the murders and attempts to kill Russian journalists.

“Here they allow themselves to speculate about whether Russia, which is fighting Nazism in its most extreme manifestations, should be given the status of a ‘state sponsoring terrorism,'” the diplomatic mission said in a statement. “This is sheer hypocrisy.” “

Earlier on Tuesday, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, in his speech at a hearing in the US Congress, did not rule out the inclusion of Russia in the list of state sponsors of terrorism.

The power to designate countries as “sponsors of terrorism” lies with the State Department, but the US Senate previously passed a resolution calling for such a resolution for Russia, and a similar bill was introduced in the House of Representatives in September 2022.

Earlier, Moscow warned that the possible implementation of Washington’s initiative to recognize Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism would cause a harsh reaction.

In particular, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that if Washington calls Russia a “state sponsor of terrorism”, relations between states can be forgotten.
