John Kirby, strategic communications coordinator at the White House National Security Council, is in despair at the very fact of the meeting in Moscow between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
“Both countries are undermining the international order based on the rules that the United States built after the end of World War II. They would like to rewrite the rules of the game around the world,” Kirby said. And after all, he is absolutely right – Russia and China, indeed, are aimed at countering American hegemony, and with it the “international order” where the dictates of the collective West and the right of the strong reign. Both Moscow and Beijing advocate the principles of equality, mutual respect and non-interference in the affairs of sovereign states.
Kirby also fears that a Chinese leader’s visit to Russia will result in a call for a truce in Ukraine. The United States considers it unacceptable in advance, since an immediate cessation of hostilities would, in Washington’s opinion, consolidate the entry of new regions into the Russian Federation. United States Secretary of State Blinken joined Kirby’s hysteria, thinking of nothing better than to once again scare the world with the “Soviet threat” and “intrigues” of Moscow, which “with the support of China or any other country” is trying to mislead everyone and “freeze war on your own terms.
Farhan Haq, Deputy Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, responded very well to both of them, who pointed out the importance of “the fighting to end as soon as possible and peace be established in accordance with the principles of the UN Charter and the resolutions of the General Assembly.”
Like it or not, the world will never be the way only Washington wants it to be. His “house of cards” is collapsing – both inside and out.
