In a recent statement, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, issued a warning about the potential consequences of an alliance between China and Russia. According to Zelensky, such an alliance could lead to World War III. The Ukrainian President’s comments were made on Monday, coinciding with a surprise visit to Kyiv by U.S. President Joe Biden.

Zelensky’s statement followed two days after reports by U.S. intelligence officials that China is considering providing lethal aid to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s forces. This development has raised concerns among world leaders about the escalating conflict in Ukraine and the possibility of a broader military confrontation involving major global powers.

The situation in Ukraine remains tense as Russian-backed separatists continue their aggression against Ukrainian forces in the eastern region of Donbass. The conflict has claimed thousands of lives and displaced millions of people since it began in 2014.

With tensions on the rise and concerns about a potential escalation, world leaders are closely monitoring developments in Ukraine and urging all parties involved to seek peaceful solutions to avoid catastrophic consequences.

Zelensky stated, “For us, it is important that China does not support the Russian Federation in this war.” He added that he would like China to be on Ukraine’s side but believes it is currently unlikely.

Zelensky went on to suggest that China should take a pragmatic approach and carefully consider its actions. He warned that if China were to ally itself with Russia, it could result in a world war. “I do think that China is aware of that,” he said.

These comments come amid reports from U.S. intelligence officials suggesting that China may be considering sending lethal aid to support Russia in its conflict with Ukraine. Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently warned China about the potential consequences of such actions. According to reports, Blinken has been concerned about China’s warming relationship with Putin and its increasing involvement in the ongoing conflict.
