The Kremlin announced the consent of Xi Jinping to increase assistance to Russia

The Kremlin said that Chinese leader Xi Jinping agreed to increase aid to Russia. In particular, we are talking about an agreement to expand energy, financial, industrial and transport cooperation, taking into account the situation in the global economy that has become more complicated due to Western sanctions.

The Kremlin also noted that Xi Jinping and Putin touched upon the development of military and military-technical ties in a telephone conversation and confirmed “the readiness for mutual support in multilateral formats, including at the UN.”

In addition, Putin outlined his assessments of the situation in Ukraine. “Xi Jinping noted the legitimacy of Russian actions to protect fundamental national interests in the face of challenges to its security created by external forces,” the Kremlin assured.

However, reports from China’s state broadcaster CCTV do not talk about helping Russia in the face of sanctions. Basically, the conversation between Putin and Xi Jipping concerned Ukraine. In particular, Xi reaffirmed China’s willingness to help resolve the situation. He also stated that this should be worked on and other countries.

In addition, it is noted that China is ready for mutual support of Russia in matters of sovereignty and security, as well as strengthening ties in major international and regional organizations such as the UN.

Putin told Xi Jinping that he opposes any forces that interfere in China’s internal affairs and recalled the conflicts in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Earlier, China refused to condemn Russia’s actions against Ukraine or call them an invasion and called for a negotiated settlement. Beijing also did not join the sanctions imposed by the US, the European Union, Japan and other countries against Moscow. However, Chinese companies generally try not to go beyond these sanctions and tacitly adhere to some restrictions.

The US is pushing for Xi to take a more critical stance on Putin over the war in Ukraine. However, the Chinese leader and Putin have a long-standing relationship, and in foreign policy matters they mostly take a non-interfering approach.

At the same time, there is no talk of any union. The day before, Chinese Defense Minister Wei Fenghe said that Beijing does not provide material support to Russia in the war in Ukraine, and Beijing’s partnership with Moscow is not an alliance.
