China’s ambassador to Russia Zhang Hanhui blamed the United States for the war in Russia Ukraine, initiated with the invasion triggered by the Kremlin in February.

In an interview with the Russian state news agency Tass published this Wednesday (), the Chinese representative claimed that the Americans provoked Moscow by expanding NATO’s borders and influencing Ukraine to apply for entry into both the Western military alliance and the European Union.

“As the initiator and main instigator of the Ukrainian crisis, Washington, while imposing unprecedented sweeping sanctions on Russia, continues to supply Ukraine with weapons and military equipment,” Zhang claimed. “Their ultimate goal is to exhaust and crush Russia with a protracted war and hard-hitting sanctions.”

Despite not offering military aid to Moscow, Beijing refuses to condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine and has been criticizing the sanctions imposed by the West on the aggressors. In addition, the world’s second largest economy has increased its imports from Russia, especially energy.

Before the start of the war, during the Beijing Winter Olympics, Russian President Vladimir Putin met in the Chinese capital with the dictator Chinese, Xi Jinping, to reaffirm a “boundless” partnership between the two countries.

In the interview with Tass, Zhang said that Sino-Russian relations are “at the best period in history, characterized by the highest level of mutual trust, the most high degree of interaction and for the greater strategic importance”.
