OSCE Parliamentary Assembly calls Russia state sponsor of terrorism

OSCE Parliamentary Assembly calls Russia state sponsor of terrorism

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe adopted a final declaration called Russia a state sponsor of terrorism and the private military company Wagner Group, a terrorist organization, Yevheniia Kravchuk, member of the Ukrainian delegation in PACE, reports.

According to the final declaration, actions of the Wagner Group on behalf of the Russian government can be fairly characterized as terrorist, given that the President of the Russian Federation personally admitted that the Wagner Group was “fully funded” by the state.

This is the first time the statement “Russia is a state sponsor of terrorism” enshrine in an official document of an international organization.

The OSCE calls on member states to strengthen international norms that clearly recognize the terrorist nature of the Wagner Group and its actions; the responsibility of the Russian Federation as a sponsoring state of this terrorist organization; and the unacceptability of involving such entities in interstate relations.
