China Denies Pressuring Europe To Accept Russia’s Gains in Ukraine

Li Hui, Beijing’s special representative on Eurasian affairs, was dispatched to Europe by Chinese leader Xi Jinping from May 16-26. He completed a six-leg visit that began in Kyiv and ended in Moscow. It followed a long-awaited call last month between Zelensky and Xi and was billed as part of China’s contribution toward ending the year-long war.
