This is an opinion he voiced on his Facebook page, sharing a link to his column in The New York Times.

The senator recalled Russia’s “sins” lately, such as supporting the Bashar Assad criminal regime in Syria; an information campaign against Western democracy, including interference in US elections; the murder of more than 10 thousand Ukrainians in the Donbas and 1.7 million refugees; the beating of Russian-controlled forces over Donbass Boeing on July 17, 2014, and the use of chemical weapons in the UK against former Russian intelligence agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

Gardner plans to file a bill that will require the US State Department within 90 days to decide whether the Russian Federation meets the criteria for listing terrorism sponsors.
