In Paris, Xi said the following about the country's role in the Ukraine war:

– China is neither the maker of the crisis nor a participant in it. At the same time, we are not spectators either. Xi stressed that we have always actively contributed to creating peace Newsweek We do not want the war in Ukraine to create a new Cold War.

In Hungary, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán identified several European countries as contributors to the war in Ukraine, and Hungary and China as countries seeking peace:

Today, Europe stands on the side of the war. The only exception is Hungary, which calls for an immediate ceasefire and peace talks, and supports all international measures capable of bringing peace.

Supposedly he sent weapons to Russia

Despite the 12-point plan, over the past year or so, several instances have been reported in which China has reportedly sent weapons and related technology to Vladimir Putin and Russia.

In April this year, US officials claimed that China was helping Russia with its largest military buildup since the Soviet era.

China rejected this claim, adding that it was not a party to the war. However, China did not condemn the Russian invasion, and relations between the two countries have become closer since its outbreak.

In July and August last year, several media outlets reported how China sent large quantities of weapons and ammunition to the Russian army.
