China announced a meeting of its special envoy with Zelensky, Kyiv does not confirm

The PRC reported that the Chinese special envoy for Eurasian affairs, Li Hui, met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenski as part of a European trip. He said that "there is no panacea for the crisis" and assured that Beijing would help Ukraine "within the limits of its capabilities".

Bloomberg wrote about it. At the same time, journalists stressed that Kyiv had not confirmed the meeting of the president with the special envoy of China.

"Chinese special envoy Li Hui met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky this week as Beijing began a European tour aimed at achieving peace. "There is no panacea for the crisis," Li told the Ukrainian leader, according to a report released Thursday by China's Foreign Ministry. Ending the war will require all sides to "build confidence and create conditions for a ceasefire and peace talks," the report said.

According to the report, Li also assured the Ukrainian president that China would help Ukraine "within the limits of its capabilities."

The weekly said that the Chinese side did not say what Zelensky had said. Kiev did not confirm the meeting between the president and the Chinese special envoy.

Instead, Ukraine confirmed a meeting between Li and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba this week. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss bilateral cooperation and how to end the war in Ukraine.

According to an official report on the Foreign Ministry's website, Kuleba stressed during a meeting with the Chinese special envoy that Ukraine would not accept any proposal that included freezing the war or losing Ukrainian territories.

"This comment was apparently a direct rejection of the Chinese position paper on ending the war published earlier this year, which proposed a cease-fire that would freeze hostilities and leave Russian troops on Ukrainian territory," the paper commented.

We shall remind you that on March 20 this year, Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in the Kremlin and held a meeting with Putin. The visit came a month after Beijing unveiled its controversial "peace plan," which was met with skepticism both in Kiev and in Western capitals.

After meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping said that China was in favor of resuming talks between Ukraine and Russia.

In late April, the Chinese leader had a telephone conversation with Zelensky, assuring that "China will not pour oil on the fire" and calling negotiations the only way out of the war. This was the first direct contact between Ukraine and China at the highest level since the start of the full-scale Russian invasion. At the same time, he announced that he would send China's special representative for Eurasia to Ukraine.
