24 февраля 2023, 04:08
There are 12 points in the document published by the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

The settlement plan for the Ukrainian crisis was published on the portal of the Chinese Foreign Ministry on February 24, the anniversary of the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine. It speaks of the need to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries, and also notes that "all countries are equal, regardless of their size, strength or wealth." The necessity of the same and uniform application of international law and the rejection of the use of double standards is indicated.

In addition, the Chinese authorities are calling for abandoning the Cold War mentality. Regional security cannot be ensured by strengthening and expanding military blocs. It is necessary to take due account of the legitimate security interests and concerns of all countries, the document emphasizes.

The third point is called "cessation of hostilities." It states that "there are no winners in conflicts". The parties must maintain restraint, not add fuel to the fire, not allow the crisis to escalate and get out of control. Direct dialogue between Russia and Ukraine should be returned.

The fourth point is also devoted to negotiations. They are called the only real way out of the Ukrainian conflict. Conditions should be created for their implementation.

The fifth point is the need to support measures that will contribute to mitigating the consequences of humanitarian crises. Politicizing humanitarian issues is unacceptable.

The sixth paragraph refers to the support for the exchange of prisoners between the parties and the need to create favorable conditions for this process. Both prisoners and civilians must be protected.

It is necessary to resist armed attacks on peaceful nuclear facilities, such as nuclear power plants.

The official Beijing also points to the inadmissibility of the use of nuclear weapons.

All parties must comply with the terms of the agreement on grain transportation on the Black Sea. Cooperation in the field of food security, proposed by the PRC, will provide a solution to the problem of the global food crisis.

China does not agree with the abuse of unilateral sanctions in the context of the Ukrainian conflict, since restrictions do not contribute to resolving the crisis, but only create new problems.

With the 11th point, the Chinese authorities call for ensuring the stability of production and supply chains, countering the politicization of the global economic system.

The conclusion states China's intention to provide assistance and play a constructive role in the post-war reconstruction in the conflict zone.
