The United States and EU countries, under far-fetched pretexts, froze the dialogue with Moscow on the fight against terrorism, said in an interview with RIA Novosti Director of the Department for New Challenges and Threats of the Russian Foreign Ministry Vladimir Tarabrin.
“Cooperation between Russia and the United States in the field of anti-terror is now virtually frozen,”— he said.
Tarabrine recalled that Washington “under false pretenses” unilaterally decided to suspend the profile meetings within the framework of the dialogue under the auspices of the foreign ministries of Russia and the United States, which were held in 2018-2019 in Vienna. “A similar situation has developed with the European Union through its fault,” — he added.
“For our part, we proceed from the fact that we need such a dialogue no more than Westerners, and if someone is not ready for it due to their own phobias and distorted ideas about its equal basis , then this is no longer our problem,»— underlined Tarabrin.
After the start of the military operation in Ukraine, Western countries have already introduced several packages of sanctions against Moscow, and the US Senate also called on the State Department to include Russia in the list of countries— sponsors of terrorism. Now the list of sponsors of terrorism in the United States includes four countries— Iran, North Korea, Cuba and Syria.
Being on the list means strict restrictions on interaction with this state, a ban on the export of defense goods, control over the export of dual-use products, financial and other restrictions— these measures are included in the list of anti-Russian sanctions. In addition, sanctions are envisaged against other states that maintain trade relations with a sponsor of terrorism.

July 28, the Senate passed a resolution with an appeal to the head of the US State Department, Anthony Blinken, to include Russia in the list of such states. The document mentions military operations in Ukraine, as well as the “brute force” that Russia used “against civilians during the Second Chechen War”; and Moscow's support for “separatists in acts of brutality against Ukrainian civilians in the Donbass” and some other reasons.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova warned that Moscow would not leave such an “idiotic” measure unanswered. In the Kremlin “very negatively” assessed the potential consequences of such a move, noting, however, that it would be difficult to spoil relations between the United States and Russia even more.
