The President’s Office explained why it is not profitable for China to help Russia in the war.

It is not profitable for China to bet on Russia , since it is not a promising ally.

This opinion was expressed by the adviser to the head of the president’s office Mykhailo Podolyak in an interview with  the Italian newspaper  Corriere della Sera . The journalist asked what would happen if Beijing decided to supply Russia with weapons for the war in Ukraine. He replied that he did not see the point in such an act.

“This will immediately become a known fact, and China will jeopardize its trade and technological relations with other countries. And secondly, why help Russia, which is suffering the collapse of its civilization? The current Russia will soon cease to exist. It would be an irreversible investment, and China too pragmatic to make such mistakes,” said Podolyak.

According to him, Chinese law prohibits the transfer of weapons to a state at war. “Today it makes no sense to bet on Russia, it is not a promising ally, but turns out to be a backward country that seeks to compensate for its weaknesses with excessive aggressiveness. Russia uses direct blackmail, bribery, political assassinations, military conflicts – all these are destructive technologies. China, on the other hand , plays on completely different, longer, multi-directional tables,” he added.

The adviser to the head of the OP assumes that China can take advantage of the position of a weakened and discredited Russia. “Let’s not forget that stable international trade and access to technological know-how are extremely important for Beijing, it places itself in competitive relations with the USA and Europe, but does not want direct conflicts and sanctions. Russia, on the other hand, can only offer self-destructive war,” said Podolyak.

Relations between Russia and China

As you know, China has maintained a neutral position regarding the war in Ukraine for a long time. This year, they published a document dubbed the “peace plan.” In it, Beijing advocated a ceasefire and the resumption of peace talks, but did not call Russia an aggressor.

The United States of America and NATO are concerned that China may provide military assistance to Russia. The CIA stated that  they are considering such a possibility .

After a series of warnings from the United States, Chinese President Xi Jinping openly accused them of organizing a “campaign to suppress China” .

It is known that Xi Jinping will visit Moscow on March 20-22, where he will meet with Putin. In the US, they believe that they can try to present it as a peacekeeping mission .

  1. Time Musvovy and Red China will be permanently excluded from the UN Security council and replaced by Denmark and Japan.

  2. I don’t know if this has already been reported here, but I noticed on my favorite conservative news website, that putin made a surprise visit to Mariupol on Saturday. President Zelensky railed against the outrageous gall of putin’s disgusting gesture, referring to how a “criminal always returns to the crime scene.”

    By the way for clarification, Daily Wire and DW News are both two different news outlets. They both have similar names, but are different.


    • Yes, the runt’s visit has been covered on here. Although, the question if it really was the bunker monkey or one of his doppelgängers is unanswered.
      You’re right. DW is an acronym for Deutsche Welle.

      • I like that! “Bunker monkey” makes it sound like putin enjoys smearing literal shit all over things and then howling about his own stink. Probably does too, but tries to pretend he’s respectable enough for the public, so he puts on the tie and “monkey suit,” as business attire is sometimes referred to.

  3. If China looks at the overall picture of things, it will see that a defeated mafia land is better for its own interests than one that wins.
