“Many of the items included in the china peace plan are in line with Russian positions and can serve as the basis for a peaceful settlement, as long as the West and Kiev are ready for it,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the end of a meeting in the Kremlin with Chinese leader Xi Jinping. Of course, he immediately added: “Although, for now, we do not see such will on his part.”
The Chinese initiative defends the territorial integrity of the countries, but does not refer at any time to the Russian annexation of four Ukrainian regions or the withdrawal of Russian troops. Instead, it does condemn the sanctions against Russia and the military expansion of NATO, the main Russian argument for launching its military campaign.
“Russia and China can find a solution to even the most complicated problems,” Putin stressed. The Russian president has not hesitated to praise the Chinese plan and Beijing’s “constructive” position, but at no time has he shown himself willing to order a cessation of hostilities, the third point, not to mention sitting down to negotiate with the Ukrainian leader , Volodimir Zelenski, the fourth of the twelve points.
In fact, his main adviser for international affairs, Yuri Ushakov, has subsequently admitted that the implementation of the plan “depends not on the Russian and even more so on the Chinese side, but to a large extent on Kiev.”
For his part, Xi has assured that China is committed “to peace and dialogue” and “actively supports reconciliation and the restoration of negotiations” between Russia and Ukraine.
