China is deeply concerned about the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine
The Chinese side is deeply concerned about the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine and calls on the parties to maintain composure and restraint, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said today, Xinhua News Agency reports.
The Chinese diplomat was asked a question: reportedly, on May 2, during the "anti-terrorist operation" near the city of Slavyansk in eastern Ukraine, two helicopters of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were shot down. As a result, two pilots and one armed pro-Russian activist were killed. On the same day, in Odessa, there were massive clashes between supporters and opponents of the Kiev government, which resulted in serious human casualties. How will the Chinese side comment on these events?
The Chinese side, as Qin Gang stressed, calls on the parties to follow the agreements reached by Russia, the USA, the EU and Ukraine in Geneva, and to renounce any forces or violence that could aggravate the situation. To mitigate the situation, the parties need to start a political dialogue and reconciliation process as soon as possible, he added.
