China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said  that the U.S, NATO and some Western media are being very hypocritical. He said that China’s position on peace talks is consistent. One  may refer to China’s statements on hotspot issues including Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Palestine and Israel. “When it comes to civilian casualties and humanitarian situations, I wonder if you were equally concerned about the people in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Palestine. Do these civilians mean nothing to you? Do not forget Serbia in 1999, or Yugoslavia. Did you show any care about civilian casualties there? If not, then you are in no position to make accusations against China.”, Zhao Lijan said.

While some countries have completely shifted their defense and energy policies to reprimand Russia and secure the European borders, India continues to maintain a relatively restrictive stance towards old friend Russia. 

“I have a few questions for you to ponder. The U.S. claimed to defend peace by working on NATO’s five waves of eastward expansion. Is peace achieved? It said it was to prevent war in Europe. Is war averted? The key to solving the Ukraine crisis is in the hands of the U.S. and NATO. We hope the U.S. and NATO, the culprits of the crisis, can reflect upon their roles in the Ukraine crisis.” – China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian stated
