Beijing does not approve of Russia's decision to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus - Chinese Foreign Ministrycensor.net/ua/new...
It seems the pawn defied the master XD
It's not just that.
Right after the meeting with Putin ended, Xi Jinping made a reunion with Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan to the first China-Central Asia summit on Wednesday. But did not invite Russia.
These countries are in Russia's backyard, and are what Russia considers to be their area of influence.
This is a major power grab from China, right under Russia's nose. And there is nothing Russia can do to prevent it, because they are fully comited in Ukraine.
If anyone was expecting China and Russia to be good allies and work together, this is more proof that it won't happen.
And China is just using Russia's weakness to it's own advantage.
