Russia has requested military and food aid from China as Moscow continues its invasion of Ukraine. At the same time it has denied reports that it needed Chinese military equipment to use in the conflict. Over the weekend, U.S. officials said they had information that Russia had requested military support from China, including drones, as its aggression in Ukraine progressed more slowly than the Kremlin expected.
A US official said Russia had requested military equipment from China for use in its invasion of Ukraine. The request heightened tensions over the ongoing war ahead of a meeting in Rome between the top US and Chinese government aides on Monday. Rome among top aides to the US and Chinese governments Rome.
China on Tuesday said its stance on the Ukraine conflict is “completely objective, impartial and constructive,” and repeated accusations the U.S. is spreading misinformation over reports Beijing has responded positively to a Russian request for military supplies.
Beijing has refused to criticize Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, or even to refer to the conflict as a “war”.
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian’s comments came after U.S. adviser Jake Sullivan and senior Chinese foreign policy adviser Yang Jiechi met in Rome on Monday, with the Biden administration increasingly concerned that China is using the Ukraine war to advance Beijing’s long-term interest in its competition with the United States. ‘Reported by News4 Jax’
The United States claims that Russia has asked China for military assistance in its war in Ukraine and that China has responded in the affirmative. The White House said US President Joe Biden will meet with European leaders on Monday to discuss ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine, including a Russian military buildup near Ukraine. Russia has amassed thousands of soldiers along the border with Ukraine, and people are talking about a possible war.
The U.S. says Russia has asked China to provide military assistance for its war in Ukraine, and that China has responded affirmatively. Both Moscow and Beijing have denied the allegation, with a Chinese spokesperson dismissing it as “disinformation.” Still, the claims have generated conjecture over how far Beijing would be willing to go in backing its “most important strategic partner,” as China’s foreign minister recently described Russia.
Following initial reports that Russia had asked China for military aid, unnamed U.S. officials said that Washington had determined that China had sent a signal to Russia: Beijing would be willing to provide both military support for the campaign in Ukraine and financial backing to help stave off the impact of severe sanctions imposed by the West. At a meeting in Rome on Monday, National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan warned senior Chinese foreign policy adviser Yang Jiechi against providing such support, even as the Kremlin denied requesting military equipment.
The U.S. is wary of China’s intentions because the government of President Xi Jinping has refused to criticize the Russian invasion, even as it seeks to distance itself from the Kremlin’s war by calling for dialogue and reiterating its position that a nation’s territory must be respected. ‘Reported on MSN.com’
How much longer will Vladimir Putin’s threat of a nuclear war deters America from helping Ukraine with a no-fly zone, if and when China decides to send supplies or even men to help with the Ukraine invasion. Every time I see President Zelenskyy on TV asking (begging) for help it’s heartbreaking. It’s time we Americans start pounding the streets demanding the Biden Administration grow a pair and help Ukraine stay free as we are.
If Putin gets the help he wants from China, all of Europe is in danger. The world learned a lesson with Adolf Hitler, (I make no claim that Putin is Hitler) he became obsessed with conquering the world. Then China will have a world power for their help in taking Taiwan back. If Joe Biden doesn’t have what it takes to take on Putin, then step aside and let’s see if Kamala has a set.
God Bless and protect Ukraine
God Bless America, God Bless the Veterans.
