Dmitry Kuleba, head of Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry, discussed with his Chinese colleague Qin Gan the importance of Ukraine’s territorial integrity. Kiev recognizes only the “peace formula” of Volodymyr Zelensyy, considering the Russian Federation as an aggressor in the conflict, the politician announced on his Twitter.
Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gan commented on the conversation in a slightly different way. Kuleba, according to the Asian politician, thanked China for the humanitarian aid provided. It is also noted that Ukraine is interested in a ceasefire. However, such policy directives do not correspond to the real policy of the Ukrainian Department of Defense.
China is particularly concerned about the escalation of the conflict and its duration. Qin Gan hints that the confrontation could become unmanageable and calls on Kiev to negotiate with Moscow.
Earlier, Kuleba said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine will continue the fight for Artemivsk. According to the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the neighboring state of Russia, the flight of the Ukrainian army from the settlement is unnecessary.
