MOSCOW, April 14 – RIA Novosti. The US has tried to downplay its shameful role in Russia and Ukraine by blaming China and diverting people’s attention from the truth. This conclusion was made by the Chinese edition of Xinhua.
Official Washington, the newspaper notes, is the initiator of the aggravation of the situation in Ukraine. It was the unrestricted expansion of NATO, led by the United States, that led to the escalation between Moscow and Kiev. The actions of the White House continue to escalate the tense atmosphere and seriously impede the process of political settlement. In addition, the US is trying to defame Beijing and exaggerate the so-called “Chinese threat” in order to create space for further suppression of the country.
The slander and repression used by Washington once again showed the “despicable and sinister nature” of the US, which dominates NATO and uses any means to protect its hegemony and personal interests, sums up Xinhua.
Earlier, the Chinese edition of the Global Times said that the United States is trying to make any of its rivals a common adversary of the entire NATO bloc. After the statements of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg about a new strategic concept that takes into account both the crisis in Ukraine and the increased influence of China, Washington’s desire to use the alliance exclusively for its own purposes becomes obvious, the publication said.
Huanqiu Shibao, in turn, recalled that official Washington initiated five successive rounds of NATO expansion to the east, squeezing Russia’s security space to the maximum. The ultimate goal is to emasculate and shatter the country through military quagmire and sanctions. The current situation in Ukraine is a reflection of the Cold War mentality on the geographical map of Europe.

China called the main goal of the United States in relation to Russia
At the end of last year, against the backdrop of deteriorating relations with the West and aggravation around Ukraine, Moscow handed over draft documents on security guarantees to Brussels and Washington. The Kremlin insists on ending the bloc’s military cooperation with the post-Soviet countries, refusing to create bases on their territory, limiting the deployment of strike weapons near the Russian border, removing American nuclear weapons from Europe and not expanding NATO to the east.
At the end of January, Russia received a written response – Western partners ignored all the main points. Moscow believes that the position of Washington and Brussels runs counter to the OSCE commitments on the indivisibility of security: the US and NATO defend their interests to the detriment of others.
On February 24, Moscow launched a special military operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine. President Vladimir Putin called its goal “the protection of people who have been subjected to bullying and genocide by the Kiev regime for eight years.”
