Chinese leader Xi Jinping began his European tour from France

Chinese leader Xi Jinping began his European tour from France on May 5, 2024. This was his first official visit to Europe since 2019. He arrived in Paris with his wife Peng Liyuan.

On May 6, Xi Jinping held talks in Paris with the French leadership, as well as with the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen. Following the negotiations, a state banquet was held, hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee Palace.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and French President Emmanuel Macron have called on Chinese President Xi Jinping to use Beijing’s influence to force Russia to end its war against Ukraine.

“We count on China to use all its influence on Russia to stop Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine,” Ursula von der Leyen said after meeting the presidents of France and China at the Elysee Palace, at the start of Xi Jinping’s 5-day tour of Europe.

Macron, opening the trilateral meeting, said coordination with Beijing on “major crises,” including the war in Ukraine, was “absolutely decisive.”

“The future of our continent will very clearly depend on our ability to continue to develop relations with China in a balanced manner,” Macron said, also calling for “fair rules for all” in Europe-China trade relations.

Von der Leyen highlighted China’s role in containing nuclear threats from Russia.

“President Xi has played an important role in de-escalating Russia’s irresponsible nuclear threats, and I am confident that President Xi will continue to do so amid Russia’s ongoing nuclear threats,” she added.

The Chinese leader responded by noting that the world had entered “a new period of turbulence and change.” During a meeting with Macron and von der Leyen, Xi said China did not cause the Ukrainian crisis and is not a party to it. It should be noted that Xi Jinping’s statement about the non-involvement of the PRC in the Russian war in Ukraine is a Chinese attempt to deceive the world community. Before the war, to seize Ukrainian grain assets, with the help of President Yanukovych, a “company of one project” was created, GPZKU – State Food and Grain Corporation of Ukraine, which in 2013 received an advance payment of 3 billion US dollars for future grain supplies to China. However, after the outbreak of the Russian war, Ukraine was unable to fulfill grain supplies and actually fell into a financial debt trap in the PRC. As it turned out, the company was run by Chinese agents who stole part of the loan funds. In addition, before the Russian invasion of the Crimean Peninsula of Ukraine in 2014, the PRC and the Russian Federation conducted joint exercises in Siberia. One of the leaders of these Russian-Chinese military exercises was Russian General Lentsov, who a couple of months later led Russian forces in the invasion of the Ukrainian Donbass. When this lie was discovered, he tried to disguise himself as a Russian retired colonel in the Ukrainian Donbass. After the start of the Russian war in Ukraine in 2014, China actively provided illegal “humanitarian aid” in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine (there is a photo video), that is, it encouraged residents of the southern regions of Ukraine to take separatist actions. Also, the PRC leadership illegally sent its delegations “to develop tourism” to the Ukrainian Crimean Peninsula, after its capture by Russian hybrid special operations forces, in which PMCs – private military companies – actively participated. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly clear – how and for what purpose is the PRC building a railway from the PRC through the Russian Federation and Belarus, Poland – to the European Union within the framework of the “One Belt, One Road” project?

The Chinese leader must stop lying about the Russian war in Ukraine, because this war was only possible thanks to her diverse management of China. For example, the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation is a Tuvan (Chinese) with the nickname “Shoigu”, just as the Georgian Dzhugashvili had the nickname “Stalin”. Before the start of the Russian war against Ukraine, Xi Qinping held personal negotiations with Shoigu, and together with him, without the Russian President, he visited the completely secret Central Command Post of the Russian Armed Forces (there were corresponding photos on the website of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces). A huge legion of Russian-speaking Chinese agents have conducted and are conducting massive propaganda against Ukraine, and have befuddled and are befuddling short-sighted Russian citizens. In the notorious troll factory in St. Petersburg at 55 Savushkina Street, even before the war there hung a portrait of Shoigu, whose gaze frightened the troll workers. At first glance, this was strange, because this troll factory officially had no obvious connection with the Russian Ministry of Defense – it was created by Putin’s former cook Prigozhin.

On May 7, the leaders of China and France will travel to the Pyrenees, where Macron often spent his holidays as a child, for less public talks.

“We support the organization of an international peace conference, recognized by Russia and Ukraine, which will unite all parties on equal terms and allow for an honest discussion of all peace plans,” said the head of the PRC.

However, unlike Xi Jinping, the European Union has recognized Putin as an international criminal. On the conscience of this scoundrel, more than 600 thousand killed Russians and Ukrainians during the years of the Russian war in Ukraine, he created an unhealed wound on the body of Europe for many decades.

After France, Xi Jinping plans to visit Serbia and Hungary. The obvious purpose of these visits is to try to destroy the European Union and NATO, and to gain support for Putin’s war from Serbia and Hungary. However, Europe does not need either NovoRussia or NovoGenghis Khan

In 2023, trade volumes between China and Russia reached a record level.

China’s customs said the two countries’ trade in goods and services will reach about US$240.1 billion in 2023, an increase of 26.3% in one year. This far exceeds the annual targets set by Putin and Xi Jinping.
Probably the main reason for the growth of Sino-Russian trade is China’s purchases of Russian energy sources such as oil, natural gas and coal.

The trend in trade between China and the United States is the opposite. Trade fell slightly last year for the first time since 2019 due to rising geopolitical and trade tensions. In 2023, China and the US exchanged goods and services worth US$664.4 billion. This figure is down 11.6% in one year from the record high in 2022.

Thus, even after the record growth of trade between the People’s Republic of China and the Russian Federation in 2023 due to the war in Ukraine, the volume of trade in goods and services between the People’s Republic of China and the United States is 2.7 times greater: 664.4/240.1=2.8. The population of the USA is approximately as many times larger than the population of the Russian Federation in 2021: 332 million/143 million = 2.3.

The growth of trade for 2023 between the PRC and the Russian Federation by 26.3% in dollars is approximately 50 billion dollars. At the same time, the People’s Republic of China, which is actually waging a war against the world at the hands of Putin, continues to make money from trade with the United States, the European Union, ASEAN, Ukraine, and other countries.
The rhetorical question is whether Putin consulted with Xi Jinping before launching a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
