BEIJING, April 14. /TASS/. The United States has been fueling the crisis in Ukraine as it hampers peace there, while inflicting more pain on the Ukrainians, Xinhua said in a commentary on Friday.
"As for the Ukraine crisis, the United States is constantly fanning the flame and hindering other countries from promoting talks for peace," the Chinese news agency said. According to the commentary, leaders of many developing countries believe that by prolonging the crisis, Washington "is exacerbating the Ukrainians' suffering, and impeding the resolution of other pressing issues facing the international community."
As a result, the international community, especially developing nations, "are more and more vocal in their criticism of the hegemonic and selfish behavior of the United States," Xinhua maintains.
While international peace and stability has been the biggest aspiration for developing countries, the agency argued, "it was made out of reach by the United States - the biggest peacebreaker and troublemaker in today's world."
"After the escalation of the Ukraine crisis, US-led Western countries launched severe sanctions against Russia, resulting in a spike of prices of global food, energy and other commodities, which overwhelmed developing countries," the news agency emphasized. "It is obvious that more and more developing countries are now vocal in their opposition to the various irresponsible actions of the United States, with many refusing to follow the United States in imposing sanctions against Russia," Xinhua added.
"For years, American politicians have been used to pointing fingers at other countries and acting willfully on the international arena. It remains to be seen if they have noticed the changes in the Global South and started to reflect on the reasons behind them," Xinhua concluded.
