Xiangrong said to Kozytskyi, “We will always respect your state and develop relations based on equality and mutual benefit.
“We will respect the path that Ukrainians choose, because this is the sovereign right of every nation. China will never attack Ukraine, we will help, in particular in the economic direction.
“In this situation that you currently experience, we will act responsibly. We have seen how great the unity of the Ukrainian people is, and this means its strength.”
This will be a devastating blow for Putin as they have always had strong relations with China.
Putin’s army is in tatters as he has lost more than 14,000 troops on the frontline have been killed in action.
Russian forces have also been hampered by poor logistical failures, tactics and not meeting their objectives over the past 20 days.
