He said this in the broadcast of “Espresso” TV.
“The Chinese are shocked by the way Russia has shown itself militarily. The Chinese are shocked by the strategic miscalculations of the Russian Federation, its clumsiness in dealing with something that Putin cannot control or stop. Russia has always been China’s junior partner. At least in the last few years, it is now clear that Russia is an aggressive and incompetent junior partner. It seems. I doubt the Chinese will take risks for Putin,” Fried noted.
According to the expert, China does not want to escalate the conflict with the United States. At most, they found that the West was not as weak as they had thought, and not as strong as they had hoped.
“This should alarm any serious strategist in the Kremlin. China is not going to be supported by Russia and sink further into the quagmire of Putin’s adventures. I don’t think the Chinese are in any danger of breaking US sanctions, even oil price controls. Putin’s stance has taken a serious miscalculation, and his current position is far from over. “It’s much weaker than the year,” Fried emphasized.
