West prepares for idea of Russia's collapse - international observer Brailian
Yegor Brailian, PhD in History, international observer, believes that EU leaders will convince Xi not to support Russia
He said this on the air of the Espreso TV channel.
"European leaders are trying to explain to the Chinese leader that there is no need to support Russia. Europe is ready to engage in the Indo-Pacific region. We see this in the visits of EU leaders to India. Europeans realize that China is already there. China and India are the main rivals, economically and politically. EU leaders will be more involved in Asian affairs. They realize that this is where the future lies. Asia will have the largest GDP and the largest population. Therefore, it is necessary to explain to China that it is necessary to adhere to the general rules of the game, but China doesn't want this," Brailian explained.
According to the international observer, EU leaders are trying to explain to Xi that they need to build common ideas. The West has realized that Russia and China are more connected than ever.
"It's hard to call it an alliance, but China supports Russia. Their only goal is to fight the West. Only Russia proposes to destroy and split the West by means of war, while China seeks to do so economically. The EU realizes that it is better to reach an agreement with China and let Russia collapse. This would be the best option, and the West is already preparing for this idea," Brailyan emphasized.
On March 20, Chinese leader Xi Jinping had an informal meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow which lasted for 4.5 hours.
During his meeting with Putin, Xi Jinping said that China would continue to play a constructive role in resolving the "Ukrainian issue." According to the Russian leader, Russia has carefully studied China's "peace plan" and is open to negotiations.
On March 21, Xi Jinping said at a meeting in the Kremlin with Putin that “conflicts should ultimately be resolved through dialogue and negotiation,” commenting on the war in Ukraine.
Bloomberg cited sources as saying that U.S. officials are concerned that China may try to convince some countries that Washington does not want peace in Ukraine and impose its "peace plan" on them.
Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez is scheduled to visit China next week, and it is noted that Ukraine will be on the agenda.
It has also been reported that Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva will propose a "peace club" with China during his visit to China to mediate in ending Russia's war against Ukraine.
French President Emmanuel Macron and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen will visit China together to present a "single European voice".
