In the first interview with Asian media, the Ukrainian leader said that China, in addition to being a "permanent member of the United Nations Security Council," is "a very powerful country with a powerful economy," a fact that "influences Russia."

Since the beginning of the conflict, China has maintained an ambiguous position in which it demanded respect for the "territorial integrity of all countries," including Ukraine, and attention to the "legitimate concerns of all countries," with reference to Russia.
