On April 6, 2020 the US State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau announced the designation of the Russian Imperial Movement – “Russkoe Imperskoe Dvizhenie” (RID) as a Specially-Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT).
On April 8, UCC President Alexandra Chyczij wrote to Bill Blair, Canada’s Minister of Public Safety and François-Philippe Champagne, Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, urging Canada to follow suit, as well as to take other measures to counter Russia’s malign foreign actions.
