Director #WangYi's remarks on #UkraineCrisis at #MunichSecurityConference2023:
#China is not a party to the #UkraineCrisis, but we have not sat idly by or added fuel to the fire, and we firmly oppose any move to exploit the crisis.
the framework for a peace deal had been put on the table. But regrettably the peace talk stopped. Some people don't want fighting to stop. They don’t care about the life and death of #Ukrainians or the harm done to Europe, but have larger strategic calculations in mind.
Confrontation between major powers must be avoided.We hope European friends will give sober thought to these questions: what are needed to stop the war? What is needed for peace and stability to endure in Europe? What role does Europe play to realize its strategic autonomy?

Since #WWII, #USA has used #USdollar hegemony to transfer domestic crises, harvest world #wealth and undermine the economic and financial stability of other countries through armed conflicts, financial wars, and trade wars. To maintain US dollar is to maintain US world hegemony. Since #WWII, #USA has used ...
Since March 2022, #FederalReserve has raised interest rates 6X. On 2 Nov, its 75-point rate hike and sharp #USdollar appreciation caused global #currency depreciation, capital outflows, rising debt servicing costs, hiked imported inflation and currency/debt crises of countries.
How this #KhazarianMafia #SCAM all started: At the latter part of #WWII, #USA took the opportunity to hoard tons of #gold and led the establishment of Bretton Woods system based on a peg between #USdollar and gold, thus establishing US dollar as "global hard #currency".

"British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who arrived in Kyiv, said that holding peace talks between Ukraine and Russia now would be a disaster for the whole world." #Ukraine #UkraineRussiaWar #Russia 1/…
Boris Johnson: “There is a certain logic in the position in which we find ourselves, because now there are no negotiations, there are no proposals. And even if there were such a proposal, I don’t see under what circumstances the Ukrainians would agree to these negotiations." 2/

🇨🇳 President #XiJinping at #BRICS2022 #BRICSBusinessForum

Where is the world headed: Peace or War? Progress or Regression? Openness or Isolation? Cooperation or Confrontation? These are choices of the times that we are confronted with.

📖keynote speech↓…
First, we should embrace solidarity and coordination and jointly maintain world peace and stability. Hegemony, group politics and bloc confrontation bring no peace or security; they only lead to wars and conflicts.

The #UkraineCrisis is a wake-up call for all in the world. It reminds us that blind faith in the so-called “position of strength” and attempts to expand military alliances and seek one’s own security at the expense of others will only land oneself in a security dilemma.

An easy place to start cataloguing the cost of a war is in military hardware. We will take a sample from the hard work of @oryxspioenkop each day to begin to show some of the overheads of warfare.

#UkraineRussiaWar #TankOfTheDay Image
@oryxspioenkop #TankOfTheDay 1. The T-64 tank was famously expensive in its day, costing 143,000 Rubles in 1973 (approx $408k today). This T-64BV was destroyed on 03/16/2022.

💸 Total: $408k

@oryxspioenkop #TankOfTheDay 2. The T-72B is estimated to cost in the region of $2m based on historic Russian exports. Here we have one that was destroyed on 02/26/2022.

💸 Total: $2,408k

Li Ziguo, director of the Institute of Eurasian Studies at the China Institute of International Studies, writes in the CCP’s official paper, People’s Daily, that the “warmongering US”, is responsible for the #UkraineInvasion… Image
Li talks like a mafia thug: Ukraine is a beautiful country, pity what’s happening because it didn’t behave. Even if we accept Li’s premise that it’s become a battlefield between two powers, he blames the sufferings on the country that is *not* dropping bombs. Truly Orwellian. Image
A reminder again that while China insists it’s position on #UkraineRussia is “objective, fair and beyond reproach”, its own Pravda is laying the blame of the war squarely on the US, the country with no troops involved in the war

@CBCNews has written extensively about conflict in his native Ukraine. Like all wars, this one will end someday. Katchanovski said Ukrainians are counting on something like a Marshall Plan for their country - a massive injection of foreign capital to fund the country's post-war recovery 2

Whether China-US relations can return to the track of healthy and stable development depends on whether the US side can honor its commitments.
China and the US have maintained close communication on the #UkraineCrisis, and we have common understanding on realizing #ceasefire & peace and providing #HumanitarianAid. But we have different views on how to promote #peacetalks and realize lasting security in Europe.

Update #Ukraine .
Im Überblick:
- schwere Luftangriffe in #Kramatorsk ;
- Tschetschenen schicken Verstärkung;
- heftige Kämpfe um #Mariupol ;
- USA befürchten Eintritt von #Belarus in die Kampfhandlungen;
- Polen will NATO-Mission für die Ukraine vorschlagen.
Russische Truppen fliegen wieder schwere Luftangriffe in #Kramatorsk .
Es wird erwartet, dass in der nächsten Zeit eine großangelegte russische Offensive in Richtung dieser Stadt losgehen könnte.
Hier ein Screenshot. Das Video findet ihr wie gehabt bei mir auf Telegram.
Zur Erinnerung.
#Kramatorsk ist strategisch wichtig.
Dort befinden sich ukr. Befehlsstäbe sowie liegt es im Rücken der Armeegruppierungen.
Russ. Truppen versuchen seit Wochen auf diese Stadt vorzustoßen, um einen Kessel zu bilden.
Bisher waren alle Versuche gescheitert.
