Our Response to Ukraine Situation Extends to China, Along with Russia

Acting US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Derek Hogan acknowledged that the West is moving in the conflict in Ukraine not only against Russia, but also against China.

“The stakes couldn’t be higher,” Hogan said at a panel at the Washington Center for Strategic and International Studies on Friday. “It’s not just about Russia. It’s about Russia-China relations, and China is learning from how we deal with crisis in Europe.

According to him, the US needs to learn how to do many things at the same time.

He added: “We must be able to deal with the immediate and present danger posed by Russia, and at the same time, look directly into the eyes of this relationship between China and Russia.” He stated that Russia was “seeking lethal support from People’s China.”

A U.S. official said that Chinese President Xi Jinping had “countless” talks and meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin, “but at the same time, the Chinese authorities still have not interacted with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, although they” claim to have responsibility. actor and “goes so far as to say” about the role of the mediator in resolving this dispute.

Hogan came to the conclusion that in the long run we need to keep dealing with both China and Russia because they are dealing with each other.

And he added: “Moscow and Beijing are deepening partnership across borders… and so we have to face it.”
