China responds to US accusing it of being on ‘wrong side of history’ — Analysis

Washington may be fueling the conflict in Ukraine while Beijing is encouraging peace, according to the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

Beijing is not like the United States and seeks peace in Ukraine. It is now up to people to determine who it is. “the right side of history,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said on Thursday, responding to Washington’s criticism of China’s stance on the conflict.

China’s refusal to condemn Russian aggression in Ukraine has drawn heavy criticism from the US. The US Department of State spoke out against Beijing on Wednesday. “still standing with Russia … echoing its propaganda … denying Russia’s atrocities in Ukraine”Before saying that “nations that side with Vladimir Putin will inevitably find themselves on the wrong side of history.”

Russia became the most sanctioned world country after it launched its offensive against Ukraine in late February. Many countries, including the UK, US and EU, have placed severe restrictions on different sectors of Russia’s economy. Over the last three months, Washington has been trying to persuade China, India, and some other countries to follow the US’ lead in “Penalties” Russia – without success, it seems.

Russia attacked the neighboring state in late February, following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, first signed in 2014, and Moscow’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk.

In recent years, the Kremlin demands that Ukraine declares itself neutral in order to be able to join NATO. Kiev maintains that Russia’s offensive was not provoked and denies claims that it planned to seize the two republics.
