The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine calls on China to put pressure on Moscow to demand an end to the war against Ukraine against the backdrop of the missile attack on the Chinese terminal in Mykolaiv.

The Chinese side should demand that the Russian Federation stop attacks on Ukrainian critical infrastructure, said the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Oleg Nikolenko on the Facebook social network .

“The Russian Federation launched a missile attack on a terminal leased by a Chinese corporation in the Mykolaiv seaport, as a result of which 17,000 tons of sunflower oil worth $26 million were destroyed. Another terminal owned by China is under threat of attack,” Nikolenko said.

The spokesman noted that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs constantly draws the attention of the international community to Russia’s purposeful destruction of agricultural terminals in Ukraine as part of the Kremlin’s strategy to undermine global food security.

“The shelling of the Chinese terminal in the port of Mykolaiv once again confirms the importance of intensifying efforts by Beijing to end Russia’s war against Ukraine,” Nikolenko stressed.

“We call on the Chinese side to demand from Moscow an immediate end to attacks on Ukrainian critical infrastructure in order to protect, including the property of Chinese enterprises,” the spokesman said.
