Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, says he supports China’s initiative to peacefully resolve the crisis in Ukraine and emphasizes that Beijing fully understands what is behind it.

Reuters reported, based on a Kremlin statement, that Putin stated, “We support China’s approach to resolving the crisis in Ukraine because Beijing understands its main reason and the global geopolitical significance.”

The President of Russia says that the issues raised by Xi Jinping, the President of China, in discussions with Olaf Scholz, the Chancellor of Germany, are “realistic and constructive steps” that develop the idea of overcoming the Cold War mentality.

This comes amid the escalation of conflict between Russia and Ukraine, resulting in thousands of deaths, displacement of civilians, and economic hardships for both countries.

International sanctions against Russia have been imposed in response to its actions in Ukraine, further exacerbating tensions. Despite diplomatic efforts, a lasting resolution to the conflict remains elusive, with both sides entrenched in their positions and external factors contributing to the stalemate.

According to this news agency’s report, Beijing presented a 12-point plan last year that was welcomed by Ukraine and Russia at the time.

However, the United States said that China was presenting itself as a “peacemaker” while not condemning Russia’s “incorrect narrative” and invasion of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Sergey Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister, called this proposal a “reasonable plan” last month.

In this plan, the Chinese president calls for “cooling down the situation, creating conditions for peace restoration and stability, and minimizing its impact on the global economy.”

Russia asserts that Western attempts to incorporate Ukraine into NATO pose a significant security threat, viewing it as an encroachment on its national security interests.

Moscow perceives the conflict in Ukraine as a manifestation of broader tensions between Russia and the Western alliance. Describing its involvement in Ukraine as a “special operation,” Russia claims its actions aim to disarm Ukraine and safeguard it from what it labels as “fascist” elements. These assertions reflect Russia’s narrative of defending its perceived regional interests amidst geopolitical competition with the West.

However, Ukraine and the West have stated that the claim of “fascism” is baseless and that Russia’s war is a “provocative and aggressive act of aggression.”
