US Sanctions on Russia Create “Lawless Jungle” – View From China
By sweN TR
Beijing-backed outlet the Global Times has slammed Washington’s sanctions against Russia as illegal maneuvering to benefit US interests – citing Brazilian FM Carlos Franca who branded the measures “illegal under international law”.
“The only calculus is its own strategic goal of suppressing its rival. It has every faith in its own might, in defiance of international laws and rules, moral principles, or harmful consequences that its actions might cause to others,” an article has claimed.
It highlighted how the US allows imports of materials it depends on from Russia, such as titanium for aircraft production, and fertilizers, while banning other countries from trading in them.
