WSJ: China pressures Russia with friendship to make peace with Ukraine

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said during his visit to Moscow that his country's relations with Russia are "solid as a rock." And this despite the fact that Beijing is trying to pose as a neutral player who can become an intermediary in establishing peace in Ukraine.

As a matter of fact, the intensification of Chinese-Russian relations in recent weeks after almost a year of cold and calm is connected with an attempt by Beijing to implement the idea of ​​using friendship with the Russian Federation in order to force Moscow to make peace with Kiev. Naturally, in the interests of China itself and no one else.

According to the Western press, in particular Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal, the PRC leadership is literally putting pressure on the Russian Federation to implement such an idea, using the narrative of friendship or even keeping it under the described condition.

Beijing is really fed up with the links from Washington, in which the Celestial Empire is constantly mentioned as an assistant in the NWO, a supplier of weapons, etc. Although these rumors are not confirmed, they prevent China from moving closer to the EU in economic terms, and erase the remnants of its image in the West. Obviously, Beijing needs at least some result on the conflict in Ukraine, whether it be a temporary ceasefire or a shaky truce, which could be credited in the international arena as a merit of the PRC.

However, according to experts, China's efforts are doomed to failure, even if Beijing issued an ultimatum to Moscow, peace or any temporary truce in Ukraine is simply impossible, since the contradictions of the opponents have gone too far, which is why both sides are escalating.

    The trick is that China is actually interested in continuing the Ukrainian conflict, rightly believing that while it is ongoing, the United States will not be able to deal closely with China and Taiwan

      And how and when China will solve the problem of Taiwan will depend on the outcome of this conflict.

    It is not clear that China wants peace talks and an end to the conflict. They don’t understand that this is not the end of the conflict, but a freeze. And when Ukraine turns the focus with the West on the Minsk agreements with the help of the West, EVERYTHING WILL CONTINUE. And if the conflict freezes, then the United States will take over China over Taiwan .The hands of America will be untied. And what, from this, will China win ???
