Zelensky explained what an arrest warrant means for Putin and how Xi will talk to him
Russia is actively trying to involve China in its diplomatic protection. However, after the arrest warrant for Putin, Xi Jinping will in all likelihood not speak to the Russian dictator as planned.
On the air of the news telethon, Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the President's Office, said that Russia no longer exists as a global player. Channel 24 writes about this.
Putin now has a black mark
Podolyak noted that Putin is not just a suspect in a war crime, but in the most terrible and heinous crime – the mass kidnapping of children.
This is a black measure. For China, this is a completely different reality in which these negotiations will have to be conducted. Podolyak said.
He believes that China will still negotiate with Russia because it wants to find a place as a global political player. The place of Russia has been vacated and is vacant, so now the PRC wants to literally take its chair.
Reference. Xi Jinping will leave for Russia on March 20 for a three-day visit and is due to meet with Putin.
It is as if China, namely Xi Jinping, would not like to have such an interlocutor as Putin is today in terms of reputation. Almost yesterday, Putin was finally “nullified” … This is no longer a person with whom it is necessary to agree on something, – added the adviser to the head of the Presidential Office.
Russia is now a very disadvantageous partner
Mikhail Podolyak stressed that no sanctions would be lifted from Russia until the Russians comply with the requirements of the warrants of international criminal cases. That is, if Russia wants to gain access to the international resource potential, and not cooperate only with third world countries, it will be necessary to extradite the criminals.
The adviser to the head of the OP noted that 16,221 episodes of abduction of children to Russia have been officially established and worked out. In addition to these episodes, other episodes on war crimes, crimes against humanity and violations of international humanitarian law will be referred to the International Constitutional Court. So the number of families that will receive arrest warrants will increase in descending order.
All this is of great importance in order for the political elites of different countries, including those who took a neutral position, to understand that Russia will no longer exist in this form,” Podolyak said.
He stressed that these are not just words, but the beginning of a large political process launched at the level of the ISS – and these are 123 countries of the world.
I doubt there will be any strong proposals for Russia because China understands that Russia will lose this war diplomatically, legally and militarily. he added.
Yes, this question will take some time, but a China without the US and Europe in terms of economic development is a completely different China without access to a number of technologies that it now uses in its economic industry. So an agreement between Xi and Putin would be a short-sighted decision.
And although a coup in Russia is not to be expected now, the dictator is already feeling this pressure on himself. Podolyak noted that, judging by Putin's latest speeches and his behavior, he no longer had confidence in his future.
During an evening address on March 19, Volodymyr Zelensky also noted that the arrest warrant for Putin from the International Criminal Court is “a turning point, after which it becomes certain that the end of this aggression for Russia will be the full range of its responsibility.”
