They’re definitely terrorists, so the headline seems kinda silly, but here’s why it matters: *It would lead to actions such as prohibiting Russia from buying certain items that can be used commercial or militarily, and sanctions on other people and countries still engaged in certain trade with Russia.*

Don’t forget election meddling, Olympic doping, and general hacking.

What? Are you trying to tell me that a country that pays bounties for the deaths of US troops are sponsors of terrorism? Next you’ll say that countries that invade their neighbors and target civilians are terrorists! Where does this slippery slope end?

“a state sponsor of terrorism”? If you ask Ukrianians, they are the terrorists.
