外文标题：Chinese diplomat tells West to consider Russia's security concerns over Ukraine
BEIJING: Western powers should take into consideration Russia's legitimate security concerns over Ukraine, a top Chinese diplomat has said in an unusually frank and open display of support for Moscow's position in the crisis.
Qu Xing, China's ambassador to Belgium, was quoted by state news agency Xinhua late on Thursday as blaming competition between Russia and the West for the Ukraine crisis, urging Western powers to "abandon the zero-sum mentality" with Russia.
He said the "nature and root cause" of the crisis was the "game" between Russia and Western powers, including the United States and the European Union.
He said external intervention by different powers accelerated the crisis and warned that Moscow would feel it was being treated unfairly if the West did not change its approach.
"The West should abandon the zero-sum mentality, and take the real security concerns of Russia into consideration," Qu was quoted as saying.
China is now supporting Russia
Putin is a rogue and murderer lording it in Russia, But does the west remember the chaos that took plece when Krushchev sent missiles to Cuba? Did the US want the Russians in their backyard? In the same way why would Russia want the EU and NATO in its backyard. The fault is Ukraine's, that should have played neutral and benefitted from what both had on offer. Reminds one of the time the west went out of its way to topple a legally elected moderate in Iran, Mossedegh, to bring back the Shah
Omg how can they say that?! When this war was started by Russia over Krimea, just because Ukraine wanted to join Nato? Its none of Russias business and the matter of Krimea could have been solved in another way! So many people have died because of this nonsense, theres no way I could see Russia as the vulnerable party here
