BEIJING, March 1. /TASS/. US authorities bear “particular responsibility” for the military conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the Chinese newspaper Global Times said on Tuesday.

“Washington is the ‘particularly responsible party’ for the Ukraine crisis, and US-led NATO firmly holds the key to its solution. As former US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard said in an interview, “Biden can very easily prevent a war with Russia by guaranteeing that Ukraine will not become a member of NATO. “What she said was completely true, but the American mainstream media, unfortunately, not only selectively ignored this truth, but also deliberately exploited and consumed the suffering of the Ukrainian people,” according to the report. said.

The author of the article believes that “it is time to stop Washington’s war of opinion in the troubled situation, because the war of opinion serves no other purpose than to encourage new confrontations. As there are extremely complex historical and practical factors in the development of the Ukrainian Question, any attempt to simplify this historical narrative is often driven by selfish, even perverse motivations. It is important to see that both Russia and Ukraine have some intention to negotiate, and the possibility of a political and diplomatic solution still exists. .”

The Global Times reporters consider that “Washington, in particular, should bear ‘special responsibility,’ instead of continuing to be the source of chaos.”

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin, in response to the appeal of the leaders of the Donbas republics, decided to carry out a special military operation. The Russian leader stressed that Moscow’s plans do not include the occupation of Ukrainian territories. The Russian Ministry of Defense assured that the Russian troops did not target Ukrainian cities, but limited themselves to surgically striking and neutralizing Ukrainian military infrastructure. There is no threat to the civilian population.
