China refuses to condemn Russia’s attack on Ukraine, Australia angry!

Australia strongly condemned China’s refusal to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine while other countries were unified. Australia has also criticized China’s decision to ease restrictions on exports from Russia, which is now subject to heavy sanctions from Western countries.

as reported AFP, Friday (25/2/2022), Prime Minister (PM) Scott Morrison stressed that the world must unite to condemn Russia. He specifically expressed concern over the ‘lack of strong response from China’.

Also on Thursday (24/2) local time, the Chinese government actually announced that it would import more wheat from Russia. The move is in contrast to Western countries, which are compact in imposing sanctions on Russia and its allies.

“You can’t help Russia when they invade another country. This is absolutely unacceptable,” Morrison said in a statement.

According to United Nations (UN) data, Russia supplies almost a quarter of the world’s wheat with a trade value of billions of US dollars per year. Ukraine produces 10 percent of the world’s supply and there are fears that both war and sanctions will hamper production and further increase already high global food prices.

China had earlier only allowed wheat imports from parts of Russia, citing disease concerns. The deal to ease wheat imports from Russia was announced by China’s General Customs Authority on Thursday (24/2) local time, reportedly agreed when President Vladimir Putin visited Beijing this February. visited.

With regard to Russia’s attack on Ukraine, Chinese officials refuse to condemn it as an ‘invasion’. China is only pushing for talks and is sympathetic to Russia’s “reasonable” security concerns over Ukraine.

Western countries, on the other hand, have condemned Putin’s actions and imposed a barrage of sanctions targeting Russian banks, the Russian government and groups close to government officials.
