Russian transgressions against international norms are only increasing in their boldness and frequency. The U.S. needs to take a harder stance against Russian aggression, and declaring Russia a state sponsor of terrorism opens up more avenues to respond with sanctions.
Declaring Russia a state sponsor of terror escalates hostilities against a major world power, and jeopardizes the few ongoing dialogues that the U.S. still has with Russia. There is little evidence to suggest that putting Russia on the state sponsors of terrorism list will do much to deter their aggression.
