Ukraine urges China to “stop armed aggression”

China suggested on March 3 that it was a mission to act as an intermediary between Russia and Ukraine, despite the communist regime’s continued opposition to calling the Moscow attack an aggression.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called his counterpart Wang Yi on Tuesday to force China to “use the level of relations between Beijing and Moscow to force Russia to stop armed assaults on Ukrainian people. I asked. statement From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

“China is ready to make every effort to end the war in Ukraine through diplomacy, including its permanent members,” Mr. Kreva said. [U.N. Security Council.]”

Chinese telephone readings did not show that the king had made such a promise for diplomatic efforts through UN agencies. Instead, a Chinese statement citing Cleva said Ukraine was “ready to strengthen communication with the Chinese side” and was looking forward to “China’s mediation efforts for a ceasefire.”

Instead of calling the Moscow attack an aggression, the Chinese reading said it was a “conflict between Ukraine and Russia.”

On February 25, China abstained from voting on a UN Security Council resolution calling for Moscow to stop its attacks on Ukraine. Three days later, China again stood on Russia’s side, voting against the UN Human Rights Council’s decision to urgently discuss Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

So far, China has also refused to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Russia and China are proud of their “unrestricted” partnership after Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Chinese leader Xi Jinping on February 4. both sides.

A Ukrainian statement also said the king reaffirmed “China’s unwavering support for Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

There was another serious discrepancy between what China and Ukraine said about the phone. According to a Ukrainian statement, Kleba said he had told the king about Russia’s “bombardment of civilian infrastructure” and “killing civilians” in Ukraine. However, the Chinese reading did not say either, but said the king was “concerned about the damage done to civilians.”

The phone call between Kreva and the King is the first communication reported since Putin launched what he called a “special military operation” in Ukraine on February 24th.

On March 1, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights spokesman Liz Srossel, who has killed at least 136 civilians since the invasion of Russia began, injured 13 children and 400. He said he was injured.

“These are only the casualties we could cross-check, and the actual casualties are likely to be much higher,” Srossel said. “We emphasize the urgent need for an immediate stop of hostility.”

Latvia also called on China to be involved in stopping Russia’s aggression.

Andžejs Viļumsons, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Latvia, told Latvian Chinese ambassador Liang Jiangquan on the phone that China “at bilateral and UN security council to stop ongoing attacks on Ukraine. We should take advantage of that influence. ” According to a statement on March 1st.

Viļumsons told Liang that it was time for the entire international community to unite to support Ukraine, given “increasing use of indiscriminate weapons by Russian troops on Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure and residential areas.”
