USA (bbabo.net), - The administration of US President Joe Biden, at the request of China in March, forced Poland to refuse to transfer Soviet MiG-29 fighters to Ukraine, British magazine The Spectator writes, citing sources in Beijing.
The publication claims that at first Washington supported the idea of supplying Kyiv with the Soviet MiG-29 fighters that the Polish army had, but later revised its position after Beijing's urgent requests. It is noted that a number of former leaders of some European countries adhered to a similar position, which also influenced America's decision.
The Spectator clarifies that in return for US guarantees, China has committed itself to convincing Russia not to use nuclear weapons.
Against the background of the Russian special operation to protect the Donbass, which began on February 24, Western countries continue to pump weapons into Ukraine and help with intelligence. Moscow has repeatedly stated that the supply of Western weapons only prolongs the conflict, and transport with them becomes a legitimate target.
