WASHINGTON.- The head of US diplomacy, Antony Blinken, warned the Chinese Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, that a Russian aggression against Ukraine threatened global security and the economy.
“Secretary Blinken underscored the global security and economic risks posed by further Russian aggression against Ukraine and agreed that de-escalation and diplomacy are the responsible way to proceed,” said State Department spokesman Ned Price. after a call between both diplomatic leaders.
Close to Russia, the Asian giant has so far refrained from taking sides in this dispute between Moscow and Western countries, which accuse Putin of deploying 100,000 soldiers on the border with Ukraine for an eventual offensive.
But eight days before the Winter Games, which are usually accompanied by a “truce” in world conflicts, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with his US counterpart and made a stand on the the Ukrainian question.
"Russia's reasonable security concerns must be taken seriously and resolved," Wang Yi said, calling on the parties to "completely abandon the Cold War mentality" and "refrain from escalating tension."
In the conversation, the representative of the Chinese regime also called on the United States to end "interference" in the Beijing Olympics, referring to the diplomatic boycott imposed by Washington and some of its allies.
The US has said it will not send officials to the Games, which start on February 4, to protest the detention of an estimated 1 million Uyghurs and other Muslims in northwest China's Xinjiang region, as well as for the repression of human rights in other parts of the country.
The call follows the appointment of veteran diplomat Nicholas Burns as the new US ambassador to China, a post that has been empty for a year. In the statement, Wang also called on Washington to withdraw its support for self-ruled Taiwan, which Beijing claims as part of its territory.
Negotiations on Ukraine
In parallel, the Americans and NATO delivered two separate letters Wednesday to the Russians, demanding a written response to draft treaties proposed in December. The United States has "clearly made it known" that it upholds "the open door principle in NATO," Blinken declared. In other words, it cannot formally commit itself not to allow Ukraine to enter the Alliance.
It remains to be seen Russia's reaction to these two missives. "Nobody knows which way it will go," estimated Marie Dumoulin, of the European Council on Foreign Relations, assuring that it will be Putin's decision.
Washington on Wednesday said it expected a possible Russian attack by "mid-February," while a meeting of Russian and Ukrainian emissaries on the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine has led to a rare joint commitment to preserve the high the fire.
“There is every indication” that President Vladimir Putin “will use military force at some point, perhaps between now and mid-February,” US Assistant Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said.
The diplomat pointed out that the opening of the Olympic Games in Beijing on February 4 could influence "their calendar" to avoid offending President Xi Jinping during this great event for China.Share this news!00votesArticle Rating Subscribe Notify63 CommentsNewOldTop Rated Online CommentsSee all commentsjose

If Russian citizens living in the US do not They will send foreign currency to their relatives in Russia, the hunger would be unbearable, the USA is supporting a quarter of the population, when the NATO countries impose sanctions on them, the Russians themselves are the ones who defeat Putin and his tyranny
The Russians just have to loosen up the Germans and Japanese so that you can see how they run, RUN A FANATIC THAT THIS GAME WAS LOST
Putin will get the same satan already that he spends calling him. When Russia has won any war in history, Napoleon's army defeated it in the winter and if the United States had not supplied Russia with billions in arms and food, the Germans would be in Russia kicking it for the back, what a joke. the pita that putin you know very well that they cannot win a war against the american giant
Russia is nothing more than a log . It's not a crocodile! Forward USA!

The Pentagon is in the process preparing options for President Joe Biden regarding the deployment of US forces on NATO's eastern flank to try to deter Russia from moving against Ukraine or threatening NATO's easternmost members Poland, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. Some 8,500 US troops have been placed on standby to be ready to deploy to Europe at short notice. These are the US contingent of the NATO Response Force, a multinational, 40,000-troop unit tasked with responding to aggression against member countries.

You forgot to mention that in no war the number of soldiers and tanks do not count since technology put an end to that, and the proof of that was given by the Israeli army that with a hundred tanks defeated the Arab countries with all of them and their hundreds of tanks, and that war of quantities went down in history. The Ukrainian battlefield is very precarious ground for tanks as it is flat and planes can easily find tanks so they are very vulnerable so don't count on Russia winning… Read more »

'Putting your brand on the backs of the Ukrainians': Who are the armed Americans operating in the trenches of Donbass? Armed war-hungry Americans in combat gear are glamorizing conflict with staccato bursts of gunfire. Silence, darkness, beep, flash, explosion. dramatic music Indistinct screams. Artillery barrages in the shadows. Jet fumes.
Special forces operating in the dead of night. All exposed on the Forward Observations Group (FOG) social media accounts, which seem to be an uncontrollable oasis of military pornography.

In Ukraine. The conflict, often described as "frozen", between government forces and separatists in the region, known as Donbass, erupted in 2014 after violent street protests led to the overthrow of the Ukrainian government. kyiv sent troops into parts of the Russian-speaking regions of Donetsk and Lugansk, which refused to recognize the new regime. The conflict had stalled in March 2015; however, since then there has been sporadic fighting. In recent months, Western leaders have been speculating that Moscow, accused of controlling separatists, is planning an offensive… Read more »
Igor Rosa Fernández Mateo better Go see your PLD comrades imprisoned in Najayo and stop wasting your time here.
Igor Rosa Fernández Mateo jajajajaja Yours has no name, they talk about Russia and you invent and put the script that your comrades and masters give you from Havana and you spend your time giving opinions with a thousand names, and install all of us who think differently from you. industrial corruption in your PLD government and you say nothing. Better go see your PLD comrades imprisoned in Najayo.
I just read several newspapers and the most important information It is that NATO has just rejected Russia's guarantees. YOU KNOW WHAT IS COMING. The gion is the following:
1 Russia will invade Ukraine and put a puppet in that country.
2 NATO will do nothing like they did nothing in Georgia.
3 The West will focus on destroying the Russian economy
That's been the gion of the West for a long time. All of this was planned.Last edit 2 days ago by Rasputin
After of the sanctions I have my doubts about what will happen.
I highly doubt Putin will sit on his throne and watch his country suffer calamities from sanctions.
I think Putin's next move is to annex the Baltics. Provoke NATO.
NATO won't do anything either. Europe has a lot to lose and I highly doubt they will go to war.
Putin's idea is: "either we all play or the deck breaks."
Of course, and by the way it is attached all of eastern Europe and half of Germany. Of course. Keep watching little movies, you out-of-date communist. Putin wants to be Stalin and Hitler at the same time, and the communists don't say a word about that creepy interventionism of a dictator with a communist spirit who survives by the capitalist economy.
Russia also has the right to invade and annex countries.
Ideally it would be not to do it but if the NATO does it, what do you want?
NATO annexed the Baltic countries, Eastern Europe, etc, and they continue to annex countries
What do you say?
I AM UNDECIDED, I DON'T KNOW IF I LEAVE THE EMPIRE COUPONS AND GO TO MOSCOW TO PUT IN THE ORDER OF COMMANDER PUTIN TO INVADE THE UKRAINE AND BREAK THE MOTHER OF THE EMPIRE WHERE I CAME FROM LAMBONA TO LIVE. WHAT DO THE FORISTS ADVISE ME OF THIS LATRINE?
Forget Russia about guarantees, USA violates all agreements and all covenants. The most recent are the pact with Iran and the Minsk agreements... that country is not to be trusted.
If Russia is not wanted in the European community, then let it form its own community with the former Soviet republics.
The West forms its own community and does not want Russia or any other country to form its own community.. how is the pod?
Let them invadeLast edit 2 days ago by Rasputín
I would like to know if your storage room is very clean because I have ten rats that I am raising and I would like them to invade your body but if they do they will enter through your ass
What former republics, idiot , if they are all afraid of that crazy opponent poisoner?
Don't believe it, Russia is a rich country and all those ex-soviet republics are poor and would love a union again with russia..
Most of all those former republics are dependent on Russia economically…
He is so rich that his currency is very devalue or you don't know how much a Ruble costs in relation to the dollar? oh by the way nobody knows him I know him because I have a collection of coins from many parts of the world.
Gringolandia is such a liar that he believes his own lies
The ideal solution would be via diplomatic a mistake can trigger a full-scale conflict and that would be very unfortunate.
Lavrov: «The response of The US does not contain a positive reaction to the non-expansion of NATO to the east, the main issue of the security proposals»… Now the Russians are coming to Latin America and the US is not going to be able to do anything…. They already announced it yesterday….Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua have just approved defense agreements with Russia and without RESTRICTIONS!!!Last edited 2 days ago by USA made another mistake again

The US can't find how to set up one war….but with Russia the ticket is peeled…….the Russians are not going to fall for that hook unless they attack them first….the US is arming Ukraine to attack Donesk Lughansk. If they do, then Ukraine will end in defeat because those peoples are prepared and if NATO sends soldiers to fight in those two regions then the Russians are going to break the shit out of them because the majority are Russians.
Amigo Rusia it is in a very bad economic situation, therefore it would not put up with a full-scale war and they know it, this is just showing bloated muscle on the part of Russia, but they will not do anything.
From where Do you get those nonsense? On the contrary, who owes even Russia is the European Union and the US. It is so that Russia is doing less business in Dollars every day. Russia is not the one in front of the US making a bulge.

Russia is so good that you don't even know the Ruble. Maybe you've never held one in your hands and I'll bet you a dollar has.
Russians have always lived in misery and those are since that country emerged in the world
A LA VERDAD THAT YOUR IGNORANCE IS GREAT, WHEN YOU ARE IDIOLOGICALLY SICK AND YOU ARE, WHEN YOU WRITE A TREMENDOUS ABERRATION ABOUT RUSSIA.
¡GRAN VAINA!¿ AND?
And if they are so rich because its citizens are the poorest in all that part of the world
That's right, it's a legacy of communism and like this The same happens with the countries that were part of the so-called Iron Curtain and the Warsaw Pact. They are still the poorest countries on the European continent. Other examples are Cuba and Venezuela.
It is that these communists believe everything that Russian propaganda is invented, because it will be that these lovers of Russia are not going to live in Russia and prefer to live in the empire that they hate so much…. hypocrites
Igor Rosa Fernández Mateo Have you already gone to Najayo today to see your PLD comrades?
I didn't know it was Russia that was arming Ukraine and has invaded Yugoslavia, occupied Estonia, Lithuania, Moldova without their peoples having asked for NATO to get into those countries. The coup in 1914 against Viktor Yanukovych because he rejected the EU and supported China for business in Ukraine. I did not know that it is Russia that asked that the security document that the US sent to Russia not be disclosed and that it be kept secret.
Better take advantage time and go to Najayo to see your PLD comrades and take Tulio with you.
Putin is cornered, now or never …… but be careful, remember when you corner an egg eater.
Russia reveals military plans in Cuba and Latin America. Putin has agreed a new collaboration with Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua.
“President Putin had recent telephone conversations with his colleagues from these three governments, with whom we are very close and friendly, and they agreed to seek new ways to deepen our strategic partnership in all areas, without exception.
Igor Rosa Fernández Mateo the only thing that Russia has is a lot of weapons but economically it is very bad. and go see your PLD comrades imprisoned in Najayo.
I researched well the US economy is in a great economic crisis with the highest inflation in 80 years that's why they want war
I have not said otherwise but I assure you that you do not know the Ruble and you do not know its value against the dollar and perhaps you have had a dollar in your hands.
According to you, this nation is bankrupt but because it will be that from this great nation comes the food for half the world's population... Only to Russia the relatives who live here if they did not send dollars would starve, and the Chinese receive 22 billion dollars a month from relatives who live in the US, when you are going to understand that the US cannot be defeated militarily
Russia withdrew from Cuba because the Soviet Union was bankrupt and couldn't hold Cuba anymore, so at least What can be appreciated from the misery that Russian citizens go through? It seems to me that Cuba is just blowing the wind.
We must face the expansionist and adventurous claims in the style of the Soviet Union of Russia and its aggressive leader, who is irresponsibly causing world destabilization.
You have from Raq-El what the ONE-EYED CONSUMER HAS from Marylin Monroe
Igor Rosa Fernández Mateo stop insulting, especially not a lady who thinks differently from you, and instead apologize and go to Najayo to see your PLD comrades.
