Startling news broke this week that the Communist Chinese Government asked Russia to wait to invade Ukraine until after the Olympics.
The New York Times first reported that U.S. officials said Chinese officials made the request to Russia. Chinese President Xi Jinping did meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the Olympics.
NEW: A European official tells the Chinese Government asked Putin to delay the invasion of Ukraine until after the Beijing Olympics & Putin complied. I’m told both US & UK have seen the intelligence underlying this reporting

Others pointed out the hypocrisy of condemning Russia but working with China, which arguably has much worse human rights violations within its own borders.
I can’t help but notice how quick Western leaders, media pundits, celebrities, and individuals are to condemn and sanction Russia…
Meanwhile they still suck up to China. Or just play dumb. They even hosted the Olympics.
