On April 30, the minister of foreign affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, was interviewed by the Chinese state agency Xinhua. According to Kuleba, the offer to become the guarantor of Ukraine testifies to the trust and respect for China on the part of Kyiv.
Since the Budapest Memorandum did not become an instrument of Ukraine's security and integrity, the country's government is now creating a new structure of international guarantees for Ukraine's security.
"Currently, Ukraine is studying the possibility of obtaining security guarantees from the permanent members of the UN Security Council, including China and other major powers. Our offer to China to become one of the guarantors of Ukraine's security is a sign of our respect and trust in the People's Republic of China," Dmytro Kuleba.
According to the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, China's demand to stop the fire against Ukraine "will be an important measure to maintain peace and prevent further humanitarian catastrophes."
