Ukrinform
Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal in a conversation with EU High Representative Josep Borrell called on the EU to recognize Russia as a terrorist state.

According to Ukrinform, he said this in a Telegram post.

"During a video call with EU High Representative Josep Borrell, I called on the EU to recognize Russia as a terrorist state. After all, its army systematically commits terrorist acts against the civilian population. Missile attacks on the center of Vinnytsia, universities in Mykolaiv, a shopping center in Kremenchuk, and the railway station in Kramatorsk are all terrorism, which should receive an appropriate international definition," he said.

Andriy Yermak, head of the Ukrainian President's Office, earlier wrote in a column for Politico that recognizing Russia as a "terrorist state" would have dramatic legal consequences for the war in Ukraine, so it is time for the world to act.
