China is preparing to welcome a crucial autocratic supporter of Russian President Vladimir Putin for a state visit, amid warnings from United States officers that Beijing may be considering abetting Moscow in its ongoing assault on Ukraine. Belarus’ President Alexander Lukashenko is listed to hold addresses with Chinese officers in Beijing from Tuesday to Thursday at the assignation of Chinese leader Xi Jinping, China’s Foreign Ministry blazed Sunday.
His trip comes after the two leaders agreed to upgrade their countries’ ties to an “each- rainfall comprehensive strategic cooperation” during a September meeting on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Uzbekistan, which Putin also attended. The US- grounded Institute for the Study of War suggested on Saturday that Beijing could deliver the shipments via Belarus. It said,”China may seek to use agreements with Belarus to befog violations of warrants.”
Ukrainian general staff said Russia is continuing to concentrate its descent on Bakhmut and other corridors of Donetsk in the east. Russia’s defense ministry said on Monday that its forces had destroyed a Ukrainian security depot near Bakhmut. It said attacks were also launched against Ukrainian colors and tanks in Donetsk. Lukashenko is one of the steadfast abettors of Putin and has allowed Belarusian home to be used as a staging ground for the original irruption of Ukraine last time and posterior attacks. Beijing claims a neutral station in the time-old war, but it has also said it has a “no- limits fellowship” with Russia and has refused to denounce Ukraine’s corruption.
China’s state- run Global Times review said on Tuesday that Belarus was an “iron family” of China and that some Western media were viewing Lukashenko’s visit “through a prejudiced lens”.
