China Votes to Censure Putin’s Russia - for Ukraine War
In a flabbergasting shift in the stance on Putin’s savage invasion of Ukraine. China, India, Brazil, and several other states close to Russia have unexpectedly voted for a UN Resolution that strongly censures Moscow.
It’s a shocking U-turn by China, India, Brazil, and several other states close to Russia who had, since the invasion, avoided any criticism of Putin’s Russia for its war against Ukraine, especially in regard to China that has been steadily ramping up its threats to take back Taiwan by military force.
Taiwan has historically never been part of China, while Ukraine was part of Russia’s Soviet Union. In addition, the sometimes-violent border disputes between India and China make this vote an important shift in policy by President Xi.
The vote also signals that Russia’s economic power is nose-diving. It may also indicate that during one on meetings between Putin and the leaders of India, China, and Brazil, this shift Putin has lost credibility and may be coming off as crazy, desperate, and a threat.
