McMaster: We’re going to see more evidence of China supporting Russia in Ukraine war

In an interview on Sunday, former national security adviser HR McMaster predicted that evidence of China’s support for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine would emerge in the coming days and weeks.

“I think what you’re going to see in the next few days and weeks is more and more evidence of Chinese support,” he told CBS’s Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation.” rice field.

“The Chinese don’t want to be caught doing this because they are also helping the Russians to murder the Ukrainians. ‘It’s open,'” he said. “And they are trying to persuade the U.S. and other investors to continue to maintain the position of the Mercantilist model, even as they commit genocide.”

A longtime Army general, McMaster served as a national security adviser to former President Trump. Trump’s last Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, in his final days in office, has determined that the Chinese Communist government is committing crimes against humanity against Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang.

U.S. officials said last month that China was providing non-lethal aid to Russia and was considering sending lethal aid to Russia to support its war against Ukraine. The Pentagon warned that China would face “consequences” if it sent deadly aid to Russia.

The Ukraine warning comes as the US says China intends to assert control over an independent Taiwan over the next few years, potentially through military force.

China denies plans to arm Russia’s war in Ukraine or claims of genocide in Xinjiang. Beijing considers Taiwan part of China, but the island has long ruled itself.

Mr McMaster said President Xi Jinping’s speech to the People’s Congress last week “essentially prepares the Chinese people for war”.

Xi told parliament that the Communist Party should build China’s military into a “great wall of steel that effectively protects national sovereignty, security and development interests”.

McMaster added that the United States has given China “coercion” over the U.S. economy and that it is time to rethink those economic ties.

“And I think it’s time to really assess the extent to which we have underwritten in many ways over the years to strengthen our own demise, our investments in China, and indeed our fragile supply. Chain, we essentially gave authoritarian regimes coercive power over our economy,” he said.
