The Chinese Special Representative for Eurasian Affairs Li Hui will meet with Russian officials today.
During his visit, Li Hui will meet with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Deputy Foreign Minister Galuzin to discuss China’s 12-point peace plan for the war in Ukraine. Li Hui will use his good offices with Russia’s top officials as a former Chinese Ambassador to Russia to expedite an end to the costly conflict
Russia and China remain key allies in counterbalancing US hegemony in international affairs and security. Therefore, any resolution will likely be focused on maintaining Russia’s military might, and China’s economic prowess, and stemming NATO’s growing influence.
Expect the meeting’s final communique to call for a cessation of hostilities and the resumption of peace talks. A ceasefire would allow Russia to regroup and resupply, possibly enabling a second offensive toward maintaining its hold on Crimea, Luhansk, Donetsk, and other occupied Ukrainian territories. Likewise, China facilitating peace talks between the two warring states would further identify Beijing as a global peacemaker, rehabilitating its diplomatic image from the fractious days of Wolf Warrior Diplomacy.
