DISINFO: The US is behind the war in Ukraine
China believes that an invisible hand is pushing the conflict towards further protraction and escalation, and is trying to use the Ukraine crisis for geopolitical ends. This is not an invisible hand, in fact, this hand is very visible. This is the hand of the United States, the hand of Washington. Washington does not want this war to end, Washington wants and will do everything to ensure that this war continues.
The West supports Ukraine with military and financial aid for the country’s efficient self-defence, in accordance with the UN Charter Article 51, to stop Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine. Some NATO member states provide Ukraine with military assistance to help Ukraine to defend itself from Russia’s attack, but they are not involved in direct fighting. Ukraine receives weapons with the sole aim of restoring its territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders. Western instructors train Ukrainian soldiers on how to use modern weaponry and NATO officials have frequent political contacts with Ukrainian counterparts, but there are no NATO troops fighting on the front. This support allows the Ukrainian armed forces to continue defending the country against the Russian aggression.
Furthermore Ukraine is independent country, that has an independent foreign and security policy, which is not dictated by the United States. Pro-Kremlin outlets often use this narrative of different countries being under the American thumb or as so-called 'Western puppets', to imply that their national sovereignty is under threat and that they have limited power. The narrative also hides a cynical disregard for ordinary people; for their free will and ability to express political desires for the countries in which they are citizens.
