In this article, you will get all information regarding ‘Long overdue’: Pelosi affirms support for labeling Russia a sponsor of terrorism

Authority to designate nations as sponsors of terrorism is typically reserved for the secretary of state, but many in Congress are now pushing for a more forceful pressure campaign aimed at Russia. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) introduced a non-binding resolution calling on Blinken to make the designation and gifting Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy a framed copy of the resolution during a visit to Kyiv.

Lawmakers have spoken out in larger numbers recently to call attention to what are being described as Russian war crimes in Ukraine. Earlier this week, a bipartisan group of senators introduced a resolution to declare Russia’s actions in Ukraine as a genocide.

During her weekly press conference on Thursday, Pelosi spoke about Russia’s efforts to “demoralize” the Ukrainian people, in particular women and children.

“These are not just the soldiers raping girls; this is an order — an attempt to demoralize the Ukrainian people,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi invited Olena Zalenska, Ukraine’s first lady, to address Congress on Wednesday. Zalenska displayed images of children and families who have been killed, injured or displaced by Russia war.

“Help us to stop this terror against Ukrainains,” Zalenska said.
