He discussed this on Espreso TV.

"Russia is deeply integrated into China's military industry and politics. The latest Kremlin appointments show Xi Jinping's influence, as Belousov, the new Russian Defense Minister, has direct ties with China and was previously responsible for Chinese investments. China is gearing Russia up for its future wars, not just the conflict in Ukraine. U.S. national intelligence reports suggest Russia plans to support China in a war over Taiwan, aiming to block the straits. Similarly, Russia is preparing for a conflict with Japan and plans operations with North Korea. All these moves are orchestrated and funded by China," commented the international expert.

He further stated that it's uncertain what will happen to the Russian war in Ukraine when China is ready to launch a major conflict in the Indo-Pacific, which could escalate globally.

"Xi's current priority, as an old, crazy autocrat, is external expansion and supporting wars. Japanese think tanks stress the need to understand the PRC correctly, it is an unpredictable and aggressive state. As humanity approaches a phase of widespread conflict, potential hotspots include Taiwan, the South China Sea, the Philippines, and the Arctic, which China is actively developing," noted Artur Kharytonov.

  • On May 15, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin visited China, meeting with Xi Jinping. They later issued a joint statement on Ukraine.
  • China significantly supports Russia's defense and industrial sectors, supplying 70% of its machinery and 90% of its microelectronics.
