Unlike the West, Russia Welcomes Chinese Ceasefire Diplomacy

March 26, 2024 (EIRNS)—Summarizing the results of his latest trip three weeks ago to Moscow, the EU headquarters in Brussels, Warsaw, Kiev, Berlin, Paris, and Geneva, Chinese Special Representative for Eurasia Li Hui voiced concern that, more than two years after the conflict began, there is no sign of a lull, nor is there serious western and Ukrainian interest in ceasefire diplomacy—on the contrary, there is a danger that the conflict will spread.

Alexander Lukin, research director at the Institute of China and Modern Asia of the Russian Academy of Sciences, told Nezavisimaya Gazeta: “You can’t call the trip a failure. The Chinese position has been previously stated, it consists of 12 points. Perhaps after some time the parties will come to the conclusion that they can be used. But for now, the parties believe that they can achieve more on the battlefield. So far, they have not realized the significance of China’s proposals. The West and Ukraine say China supports Russia. After all, from their point of view, any country that does not support Ukraine with arms supplies is against it. It does not recognize any nuances in the positions of other countries.”
