The UK does not have a power to proscribe a country as a "State Sponsor" of Terrorism. The UK and our allies condemn the Russian government's unprovoked and premeditated invasion of Ukraine. We have considerable powers to sanction the Russian Government, which we have used with our allies for significant effect. We have implemented the strongest set of economic sanctions ever to debilitate Russia's economy and degrade funding for Putin's war.
