Ukrainian officials are urging China to use its influence to end the Ukraine war as Chinese leader Xi Jinping visits Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Ukraine says China should press Russia to end war
Ukraine expects China to use its influence on Russia to end the war in Ukraine, Ukrainian foreign ministry spokesman Oleg Nikolenko says.
“Ukraine is following the Chinese president’s visit to Russia closely,” Nikolenko said in a statement to Reuters shortly after Chinese leader Xi Jinping arrived in Moscow for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“We expect Beijing to use its influence on Moscow to make it put an end to the aggressive war against Ukraine.”
Putin warmly welcomed Xi to the Kremlin on Monday, the first of a three-day state visit.
