According to journalists, Putin's confidence in China's unconditional support partly influenced his decision to invade Ukraine.

Russian President Vladimir Putin may have misjudged China's future position, believing that Beijing would support Moscow. This misjudgment partly influenced his decision to launch a massive invasion of Ukraine. This is reported by The Spectator in a publication dedicated to the attempts of Chinese diplomacy to influence the decisions made by Washington and Moscow in the context of the war in Ukraine.

Beijing's position cannot be unambiguously assessed. To both sides, representatives of the leadership of the PRC declare their desire to listen. At meetings with representatives of the Russian Federation, Chinese politicians blame the United States for the war, and NATO representatives are told that they plan to develop relations with them.

According to journalists, China knew about the plans of the Russian Federation regarding the invasion of Ukraine, but at the same time, Putin described them as “a limited operation to return the territories lost by the Russian Federation” (the so-called people's republics of the “L/DPR” were implied). Subsequently, Beijing was surprised at the real scale of the unfolding offensive, which also included an offensive against Kyiv.

In China, they decided that Putin’s activities were fraught with a potential conflict with the West, in this light, the priority for the PRC was not support for the Russian Federation, but the need to avoid any escalation with the use of nuclear weapons and help achieve peace.

It is reported that, allegedly to achieve this goal, Beijing tried to prevent the transfer of MiG-29 fighters belonging to the Polish Air Force to Ukraine. China has decided not to supply weapons to Russia and help circumvent sanctions. Thus, journalists report, NATO and Beijing have become situational allies in terms of nuclear deterrence.

Russia planned to invade Japan in 2021, but chose Ukraine. According to journalists, the Kremlin media were preparing an information campaign: they were going to convince the Russians that the Japanese were Nazis and fascists. It has also been claimed that Japan allegedly intended to detonate a bacteriological bomb in 1944.
