3 min read

Ukrainians Worldwide Movement Organizing Committee was the very first to call in its Appeal of March 12, 2022, to designate Russia a State Sponsor of Terrorism. Since the Appeal was published hundreds of signatures were collected.

Signatories delivered and continue delivering the text of the Appeal to their representatives in parliaments, presidents, governments, political parties and public organizations of their countries.

Thanks to the signatories, our Appeal was heard in Lithuania, and Latvia also accepted the baton from Lithuania. The Appeal was also heard in the U. S. Senate…

We urge you to join our efforts, intensify the collection of signatures under the Appeal and increase the pressure on the governments and parliaments of the countries of the world to fulfill demands listed in the Appeal. Do not be indifferent! Add your signatures!

State Sponsors of Terrorism – United States Department of State

Countries determined by the Secretary of State to have repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism are designated pursuant to three laws: section1754(c) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, section 40 of the Arms Export Control Act, and section 620A of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961). Taken together, the four main categories of sanctions resulting from designation under these authorities include restrictions on U.S. foreign assistance; a ban on defense exports and sales; certain controls over exports of dual use items; and miscellaneous financial and other restrictions.

Designation under the above-referenced authorities also implicates other sanctions laws that penalize persons and countries engaging in certain trade with state sponsors. Currently there are four countries designated under these authorities: Cuba, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), Iran, and Syria.

For more details about State Sponsors of Terrorism, see “Overview of State Sponsored Terrorism” in Country Reports on Terrorism.
