The US has rightly warned China about military assistance or helping Russia evade sanctions. The world is now watching to see which nations stand up for the basic principles of freedom, self-determination, and sovereignty and which stand by or tacitly support Russia in its premeditated and unprovoked war of choice — a path China is dangerously inclined to take.
Once again, the US — constantly cozying up to key global players — is embodying double standards and using the war in Ukraine as an excuse to do so. Even before the conflict, Washington was uncomfortable with Moscow-Beijing cooperation, and its ongoing effort to drive a wedge between the two nations is an obvious Hail Mary play to protect its hegemonic status.
There's a 50% chance the size of Ukraine's army will be at least 250K as a result of a cease-fire or treaty negotiations with Russia, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
