China supported Russia Wednesday and declared on Wednesday that“Any accusation has to be supported by the facts.”In reference to the massacre that took place in Bucha (Ukraine), on the outskirts kyiv.
More than 400 civilians were killed in the town, triggering a wave of anger and outrage not only in Ukraine but in other Western countries. Numerous disfigured bodies were discovered as Russian troops retreated from the area and other capital cities. Russia denied that this was true and claimed it was all a set-up. The United States and European Union both warned of tightening sanctions against Vladimir Putin and Russia.
China, for its part, has made it clear that “all parties must demonstrate restraint” and “all sides must avoid false accusations before the investigation results are delivered”. It claims that Bucha’s information and images are “deeply troubling but we must be focused on the truth”. “Humanitarian matters must not be politicized. Any accusation should be based on facts.” Zhao Lijian (spokesman for China Ministry of Foreign Affairs) explained the situation.
China has not criticized Moscow for ignoring new evidence that suggests widespread civilian killings following Russia’s withdrawal in kyiv. “The truth and the cause of the incident must be verified”Zhao said.
The Weiboo platform was used by the Russian embassy to deny the accusations. However, its Ukrainian counterpart drew focus to “Russian war crime against civilians at Irpin”, another place where atrocities were allegedly committed, AP reports.

It has maintained an independent and contradictory stance since then. It asserted the inviolability and sovereignty of its borders while refusing to condemn Russian aggression and refuses to use the terms “war” or “invasion” in apparent deference towards Russia. Moscow.
