Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Beijing has remained eerily quiet over the war, however, China has urged Russia to find a peaceful solution to the conflict, while at the same time condemning western punitive measures against Moscow. Yet the latest rhetoric emerging from China suggests President Xi has taken a more open and frank stance in favour of his ally in Moscow. The news comes as Mr Xi held talks with Putin over the telephone.

Speaking of the current Chinese stance, Mr Xi said: "China is willing to push for the steady and long-term development of bilateral pragmatic cooperation.

"China is willing to mutually support Russia on core interests and matters of paramount concern, such as sovereignty and security, as well as achieve closer strategic cooperation."

I Call True: Looks like as the West solidifies against Russia that it is driving them closer to China, worrying times especially with the EU desperately trying to get Ukraine into it's membership

No real surprise that China is backing Russia considering the oil and gas that they use from them. Plus with China threatening Taiwan they may need Russias political backing.

I don't get why the narrative is going this way.

Zelensky became President of Ukraine in a landslide victory by promising he would ease tensions with Russia and resolve the crisis in the breakaway republics in east Ukraine that been taking place since 2014.

Has he done this? No, he has done exactly the opposite by shelling Donbas escalating the civil war and relentlessly provoking Russia by constantly asking NATO to violate the Budapest Agreement.

Looks like the world is being divided in to 2 camps, and we know how that ends up
