When the Kremlin decides to openly confront NATO, Beijing will not remain indifferent, analysts at the Chinese edition of Baijiahao believe.
According to the publication, Russia has long made it clear to the Alliance that it does not support Ukraine’s entry into NATO. However, representatives of the Alliance refused to accept the diplomatic attempts of the Russian Federation to influence the situation. As a result, NATO shifted the blame for the start of the special operation to Russia.
Numerous anti-Russian sanctions ultimately strengthened the close relationship between Russia and China. Therefore, the Chinese side will support Russia in the confrontation with NATO, since China is next on the list of objectionable countries.
