“China is making a mistake by not supporting US sanctions against Russia”

Dmitry Kosyrev

In the Chinese media, a huge amount of material has appeared about fakes that the United States is distributing around the world regarding the Ukrainian situation. There are ten fakes for the round count, and with peculiarities: they all have something to do with China, that is, about what and why Beijing says and does, what position it generally takes in relation to the Ukrainian conflict.
The article refutes these fakes one by one. In a purely Chinese style: thorough, detailed, with links to Am-erican and other publications. Listing all ten is long, let’s look at at least two.
Fake number (on the list) three: “China is helping Russia spread disinformation about the US holding bioweapons in Ukraine.”
Oh, it turns out to be disinformation? And the Chinese are publishing their dossier about who said what on this subject. For example, that not the United States in general, but the Ministry of Defense controls 336 biological laboratories in 30 countries, but we heard this. But the fact that in November 2021 the United States openly admitted the presence of 26 such laboratories in Ukraine (at the meeting of the parties to the Biological Weapons Convention), or the fact that in March of this year the Pentagon already admitted the presence of 46 laboratories under its control there, is already more interesting.. If only because there are links to sources: the first and second. Disinformation you say?
Well, and on this point, all sorts of trifles are listed, such as details of the US-Ukrainian agreements, including the fact that Ukraine undertakes not to disclose “sensitive” information on this topic to anyone. Also with a link. Against the background of this official information, everything else, including the well-known speeches of Victoria Nuland in the Sen-ate or the former American bioactions in Korea, Syria or Iraq, are already so, trifles. Now fake number nine, formulated by the Americans as follows: “China is making a mistake by not supporting US sanctions against Russia.” So he is wrong and ended up “on the wrong side of history”? And Beijing not only recalls the well-known – that “233 sovereign states and territories” did not join the sanctions, and the population of those in relation to the sanctions West is 6.5 billion against 1.1 billion. There is also a good dossier on all sorts of statements around the world on this topic, including American ones, about the presence of 9400 sanctions (not only against Moscow), which the Americans themselves cannot figure out and do not even try, and this is official. So who’s making the mistake?
It is easy to see that in this monumental dossier, Chinese propaganda bombards not even completely falsifications, but rather the usual and annoying points of American propaganda on “Ukrainian” (more precisely, anti-Russian) topics. Fake is a word that allows for both possibility and err-or. And in this case, there is a system. Purposeful, tedi-ous repetition on all possible platforms of the same blatantly false idea. And it is easy to see that the matter is not limited to ten points here, China, we repeat, has simply chosen what concerns it. But the Western propaganda machine is many times more powerful.
Here there is not only amazement at the scale of American propaganda disinformation, which the Russians felt literally from the first hours of the special operation.
The point is not even in its quantity, but in the quality of what is happening. For example, how about this thought: earlier, in all ages, propaganda (including false) was a familiar, almost inevitable part of the war, but it served the war, military victory, occupied a subordinate position in front of it. And now the feeling is that the war itself is being waged primarily, if not exclusively, as an auxiliary, auxiliary operation for propaganda.
Indeed, if we were talking about the classics of military operations, then the mass of everything that the Ukrainian side is doing is generally inexplicable from the point of view of some kind of intelligible military goal. For example, the systematic destruction of people along with the entire infrastructure of human existence on their territory – this can be either if you consider this territory not yours, but just hostile, or these wild actions are taken only in order to create a picture of destruction and atrocities, passing them off as the work of the Russian side (most likely, both here and there).
Yes, but this is definitely depriving Ukraine of the territories where this is happening? So after all, she is waging war not for her own, but for the sake of completely different interests.
Let us assume that any war is a test of some new weapon. And now the limits of the effectiveness of the gigantic apparatus of information suppression of one’s own and other people’s population are being tested. The quality of the filling of this machine of lies, apparently, does not matter: an extremely simple principle operates – “anti-fact”. The real picture is taken and turned out to the complete opposite. The main thing is to qualitatively isolate as many people as possible from any information other than what is needed.
The test passes with varying degrees of success. Those same 1.1 billion Westerners mentioned above are securely isolated, other opinions, however, even there are becoming louder. But China is successfully and aggressively fighting fakes all over the world, knowing full well that some of them are directed against it.
Although it seems that what does China have to do with Ukraine? It doesn’t matter. In Beijing and not only there, they have long seen that China will be to blame, regardless of the facts and other reality. Therefore, in the information war, this country is actively acting on our (its) side. Sometimes he turns to poetry – for example, these lines :
Along the banks of the Yangtze, monkeys moan incessantly.
So my boat cheerfully passed ten thousand miles.
