MOSCOW, April 20. /TASS/. The Western countries’ weapon supplies to Taiwan in fact replicate the tactic employed in Ukraine, the director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s first Asian department, Georgy Zinoviev, said at a meeting of the State Duma’s group for relations with the Chinese parliament.
"What has been happening in Ukraine methodologically looks very similar to the United States’ policies towards Taiwan, which is receiving heavy arms supplies. We saw the same in Ukraine," he said.
"The West’s method is the same - it uses Taiwan against China and Ukraine against Russia. The similarity is striking. Although from the standpoint of international law nuances may differ," Zinoviev said.
