Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China: Sanctions against Russia do not contribute to resolving the crisis in Ukraine

Beijing believes that the sanctions imposed by the US and the EU on Russia do not contribute to the resolution of the Ukrainian question. This was stated by Deputy Foreign Minister of China, Cheng Guoping.

The diplomat also noted that the cause of the Ukrainian crisis is the overthrow of the legal authority in the country, ITAR-TASS reports.

"The fact that there was an illegal overthrow of the legitimate authorities as a result of provocations and unrest on the Maidan is the direct cause of the crisis in Ukraine," Chen Guoping said, noting that the role of the West in these events was rather "negative." The diplomat also noted that the external influence on Ukraine, which is looking for ways of development, cannot be ignored, and above all, this is the influence from the United States and other Western countries.
