China Calls on U.S to Lift Russia Sanctions to Resolve Ukraine Invasion

China has called on the United States to lift sanctions against Russia, claiming it will help resolve Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine. 

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said that the U.S. should stop threatening Moscow with sanctions if they wanted to see progress in Russia-Ukraine peace talks. 

“If the United States is truly interested in resolving the Ukrainian crisis, they should stop brandishing the sanctions card,” Zhao said at a briefing Wednesday. 

Zhao has previously criticized the West’s decision to impose sanctions on Russia, stating that China “always opposes unilateral sanctions.” Another spokesperson from the Chinese Foreign Ministry accused the U.S. of “profiting from the chaos” of the ongoing war. 

The White House announced on Wednesday that Washington, the G7 and the European Union are readying another round of sanctions targeting Russian banks and officials. They will also ban new investment in Russia.

The move is a response to continued shelling of cities Mariupol and Kharkhiv, as well as civilian killings in the formerly Russian-occupied town of Bucha — acts that Kyiv and its allies have called war crimes by Russian forces. 

Despite calls from Ukrainian officials, China has repeatedly refused to condemn Russia’s offensive on its pro-Western neighbor, instead seeking to preserve trade links and hosting Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov last week. 

But in his comments on Wednesday, Zhao called the reports of civilian deaths in Bucha “deeply disturbing.”

  1. I have better solution. How about the war criminals remove themselves from Ukraine, then think about lifting sanctions. The Chinks are just like the war criminals, they get everything arse upwards.

  2. The chicoms couid stop this genocide quite quickly; probably with one phone call.
    Since they won’t do that, other means are needed.
    The Czechs are sending a few old tanks to the defenders. It is thought that the hopeless Biden shitshow are opposed even to this.
    Britain, Poland and Czechia must now start sending shit loads of offensive equipment, including fighter planes.

  4. Well, I saw more sanctions being brought up by Britain, and there’s still a strong anti-Russia sentiment among the American public. So I doubt the sanctions will be lifted any time soon. As stupid as president biden is, he’s looking at replacing Russian oil with Venezuelan, swapping one dictator’s business for another. He won’t even bother trying to produce American oil again, the stupid fuck.

    What I think would be hilarious, is if biden managed to convince the West to buy from Ukraine’s massive natural gas deposits. Deposits estimated to be over 5 trillion cubic meters in volume. Zelensky would definitely need help with reconstruction, and in addition to compensation payments from Russia, I’d guess that would probably see Ukraine get back to the way it was before the war.
