China’s Xi Jinping rebukes Putin in stern anti-nuclear message


  • Nuclear wars must not be fought, in order to prevent a nuclear crisis in Eurasia,’ Xi says during meeting with German chancellor Olaf Scholz
  • President Vladimir Putin has vowed to use ‘all weapon systems available’ if Russian territorial integrity is threatened

Loud and clear

Since the start of the Ukrainian invasion, China’s leader Xi Jinping has sent Russia its strongest and most direct message.

Preventing a nuclear conflict

“The international community should jointly oppose the use or threats to use nuclear weapons,” Xi said during a meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. “Nuclear wars must not be fought, in order to prevent a nuclear crisis in Eurasia.”

Not naming names

Putin and Russia were not specifically mentioned by the president of China, but it is well known that the Kremlin has stated that using nuclear weapons in Ukraine is not out of the question.

The nuclear option

The New York Times reports that Moscow’s military leaders have been debating the potential of using Russia’s more than 2,000 nuclear tactical bombs in Ukraine.

China calls for peace

Since the commencement of the war, there have been other disruptions between Beijing and Moscow. A plea for peace talks in Ukraine was made to the UN back in September by China, a longtime ally of Russia on the world scene.

‘Keep the crisis from spilling over’

At the time, according to a report from Al Jazeera, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi asked the governments of Moscow and Kiev to “prevent the crisis from spreading” to underdeveloped countries.

‘The pressing priority is to facilitate talks for peace’

“China supports all efforts conducive to the peaceful resolution of the Ukraine crisis. The pressing priority is to facilitate talks for peace,” Wang said to the United Nations General Assembly.

The architects of peace

“The fundamental solution is to address the legitimate security concerns of all parties and build a balanced, effective, and sustainable security architecture”, the Chinese Foreign Minister added.

China reaching out to Ukraine

The Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba, and Wang also spoke for the first time since the start of the war.

Russian war crimes

This came about as a result of a UN inquiry, which involved 150 victim and witness interviews and revealed proof that Russia had committed war crimes in Ukraine.

Pressure from the West

Since then, especially in light of the Russian army’s partial mobilization, China has come under increased pressure from the West to use its contacts with Russia to persuade President Vladimir Putin to put an end to the conflict in Ukraine.

Russia speaks out

Following the UN report on abuses of human rights in Ukraine, Sergei Lavrov, the foreign minister of Russia, expressed dissatisfaction with the widespread anti-Russian sentiment in the West.

*Russophobia in the West?

“The official Russophobia in the West is unprecedented. Now the scope is grotesque,” Lavrov declared at the UN, according to Al Jazeera.

More than military defeat

“They are not shying away from declaring the intent to inflict not only military defeat on our country but also to destroy and fracture Russia,” added the Russian Foreign Minister.
United by a common enemy

United by a common enemy

In the past, Russia and China had grown closer in part out of a common antagonism towards the United States.
