BEIJING, December 30. /TASS/. Chinese authorities approve of Russia’s position, which does not reject a peaceful way of settling the Ukrainian crisis, President Xi Jinping said on Friday during a video conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"We have drawn attention to the fact that the Russian side has never ruled out the possibility of settling the conflict in Ukraine through diplomatic talks. China welcomes such a position," Xi Jinping said, cited by CCTV.
