The West has exposed to the world their perfidy and lack of principles. That this has had to be pointed out by a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman is a disgrace. Yes, it is hypocritical coming from the mouth of a representative of a bunch of organ-harvesters, which is about as ‘private property’ as you can get, but it is also the truth.
“I heard that Russian conductors were fired by orchestras in certain Western countries for refusing to condemn their motherland, and Russian movies were excluded from certain film awards. In university, the works of Dostoyevsky were banned. The display of the letter “Z” was banned in certain countries.
“Western politicians often talk about how literature and art transcend borders, and the same goes for music. They also say “private property is inviolable.” So, what have these writers and musicians done wrong? Meanwhile, the private property of so many Russians has been frozen or confiscated.
“Let’s hope that Western politicians will reflect on these principles they keep talking about. Their insane actions are not going to do anything good, and they’re not going to deescalate this situation. I hope that all parties can just calm down, and start working on peace talks, instead of escalating sanctions and tensions.”
