Biden rejects classification of Russia as a "terrorist sponsor".

Rather, a classification as a "terrorist state" is counterproductive, as it could hamper the delivery of aid to war-ravaged Ukraine or interfere with United Nations mediation with Turkey to export grain from blocked Ukrainian ports, Jean-Pierre said.

Joe Biden replied "no" to a journalist's question on Monday whether he would put Russia on the "black list of states supporting terrorism", rejecting repeated demands from Ukraine.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi described Russia as a "state sponsor of terrorism" after a rocket attack on a shopping center in the city of Kremenchuk at the end of June that left at least 20 dead. Ukraine then repeatedly asked the West to agree with this classification.

The US currently has four countries on its "terrorist list": Iran, Syria, North Korea and Cuba.
