Beijing supports Moscow

Beijing has not condemned the Russian invasion Ukraine and spoke out against the sanctions imposed on Moscow. According to experts, he did not provide material support to the Kremlin, but supported it in propaganda and politics.

Putin met Xi in Beijing in early February, just weeks before the Russian invasion of Ukraine began. After the meeting, the two countries issued a joint statement, described by some commentators as “a manifesto for a new world order”. In the document, China backed Russia’s demands towards NATO, and Moscow backed Beijing’s position towards democratically ruled Taiwan. Both countries also declared “friendship without borders” and “no forbidden areas” for cooperation.
