Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky reportedly said that World War III is coming if China allies itself with Russia against his country, just one day prior to Monday’s surprise visit from U.S. President Joe Biden.
“For us, it is important that China does not support the Russian Federation in this war,” Zelensky told German daily Die Welt on Monday. “In fact, I would like it to be on our side. At the moment, however, I don’t think it’s possible.”
“Because if China allies itself with Russia, there will be a world war, and I do think that China is aware of that,” he said.
New York Post reports:
The Ukrainian president’s remarks come one day after US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken admitted the US was “very concerned that China’s considering providing lethal support to Russia” as it continues its long invasion of its western neighbor.
Blinken told NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that he told his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, that such a move would have “serious consequences in our relationship.”

On Monday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin took a tougher tack when he said the United States “is in no position to make demands of China.”
The spat comes at a particularly fraught time in the relationship between the two nations, which most recently quarreled over a Chinese spy balloon that floated above most of the US before being shot down earlier this month.
During his visit to Ukraine, Biden told Putin that his “war of conquest is failing.”
“One year later, Kyiv stands, Ukraine stands, democracy stands,” Biden said after meeting Zelensky at Mariinsky Palace in the heart of Kyiv’s capital city.
“The Americans stand with you and the world stands with you.”
Wang Yi is expected to meet with Putin this week, as Russia’s ties with China grow ever stronger; trade between the two Eastern powers rose 34% in 2022, according to the New York Post.
Reminds me of that obnoxious little kid in school with the big mouth who is always threatening to have his big brother beat you up.
Zelensky is the biggest impediment for peace, his people don’t care about NATO missile batteries being placed on their eastern border with Russia. Hopefully someone assassinates him before he murders millions of them. Nobody is going to start WW3 over Ukraine.
This little Ukranian monster is committing us to a conflict that is insane. Without our support this would have been over months ago. Sorry, but the Ukraine is not worth what we have already “invested”. This is a European issue, and we have several far more important problems that are not being addressed while the massive money laundering Ukraine pipeline is still directing our wealth and military assets to a corrupt clown.
Someone shove a dildo shaped pipe bomb in Zelensky’s mouth and get out before it goes off. It’s not Putin who is trying to start WW3, it’s this Nazi idiot. Biden doesn’t have a clue what nap he’s supposed to take next, and he’s worthless even if he was awake. Get Trump back yesterday.
Horse shit. Biden didn’t tell Putin anything while he was in Ukraine.
