In the mids of Russian massacre in Ukraine where already 23%(10.5 million while over 3.5 million ran from country) of the Ukrainians became homeless, Chinese Vice FM Le Yucheng urges West to end what Le refers to as "increasingly outrageous'" sanctions on Russia and for NATO to refrain itself from expanding eastwards

China FAILED as a result to fulfill its dream about leadership legacy at United Nations.

To be detailed - China with its action moved a bit closer to Taiwan and in direction of recolonization of the world following path of Russia, but time will demonstrate what will follow as next.

Ukraine(NOT RUSSIA) - is the biggest European country.

Chinese official calls sanctions on Russia increasingly 'outrageous'

BEIJING, March 20 (Reuters) - A senior Chinese government official said on Saturday that sanctions imposed by Western nations on Russia over Ukraine are increasingly "outrageous".

Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng also acknowledged Moscow's point of view on NATO, saying the alliance should not further expand eastwards, forcing a nuclear power like Russia "into a corner".

China has yet to condemn Russia's action in Ukraine or call it an invasion, though it has expressed deep concern about the war. Beijing has also opposed economic sanctions on Russia over Ukraine, which it says are unilateral and are not authorised by the U.N. Security Council.

"The sanctions against Russia are getting more and more outrageous," Le said at security forum in Beijing, adding that Russian citizens were being deprived of overseas assets "for no reason".

"History has proven time and again that sanctions cannot solve problems. Sanctions will only harm ordinary people, impact the economic and financial system... and worsen the global economy."

Russia calls its actions in Ukraine a "special operation" that it says is not designed to occupy territory but to destroy its neighbour's military capabilities and capture what it regards as dangerous nationalists.

In a call on Friday between Joe Biden and Xi Jinping, the U.S. president warned his Chinese counterpart of "consequences" if Beijing gave material support to Russia's attack, the White House said. read more

Moscow has demanded legally binding guarantees from NATO that it will stop its expansion and return to its 1997 borders.

"This pursuit of absolute security (by NATO) precisely leads to absolute non-security," Le said. "The consequences of forcing a major power, especially a nuclear power, into a corner are even more unimaginable."

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said this week that Ukraine could accept international security guarantees that stopped short of its longstanding aim to join NATO.


NATO Shouldn't Expand East, Pushing Russia Into Corner Will Have Dreadful Repercussions: China

China said if NATO's expansion goes further, it would be approaching the outskirts of Moscow where a missile could hit the Kremlin within seven or eight minutes.

A Chinese diplomat has said NATO should stick to what he claimed was a promise not to expand Eastward.

In a speech on Saturday, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng criticised the far-reaching Western sanctions imposed on Russia following the invasion of Ukraine and said the root cause of the war in Ukraine “lies in the Cold War mentality and power politics”.

Echoing a Kremlin talking point, the Chinese envoy said if NATO's "enlargement goes further, it would be approaching the outskirts of Moscow where a missile could hit the Kremlin within seven or eight minutes".
