The Kremlin has responded to US attempt to write down Russia in “sponsors of terrorism”
MOSCOW, 9 Aug — RIA Novosti. Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov has called suggestions of senators of the United States to recognize Russia as a sponsor of terrorism remarks “beyond reasonable”, the question of the sponsorship of terrorism can be addressed to the countries that support remaining in Syria of the terrorist group.
The Kommersant newspaper has previously published the text of the bill on new sanctions against Russia, prepared by Republican Lindsey Graham and three of his colleagues. According to the newspaper, the congressmen, in particular, require from the President of the United States Donald trump to block dollar payments of Russian banks, prohibit the operation to US residents with a new Russian public debt and to solve the issue of the recognition of Russia as “state sponsor of terrorism.”
“A lot of hot heads operates in the legislative bodies of different countries. And, of course, these heads sometimes make highly emotional and beyond reasonable expression. Each time we monitored them carefully and try to understand how it relates to the official position of a particular country,” Peskov said to journalists on Thursday, answering the question, how in the Kremlin look at such a proposal.
You can only ask a rhetorical question. Now, when we see in Syria remaining terrorist groups, and we are well aware of how and who is sponsoring these groups, it is possible to address this issue in other countries: who actually is the real sponsors of terrorism?Dmitry Pescovitz Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation
