Quoting “anonymous officials” to release disinformation is an old trick used by the United States to mislead the public. The Global Times has learned from various sources that previous reports saying that China had asked Russia not to take action in Ukraine before the end of the Winter Olympics, quoted “anonymous officials” from the National Security Council and US purposes are to shift its own responsibility in the conflicts to profit from it and erode China.
In two reports, published on February 25 and March 2, the New York Times quoted “anonymous US officials” as saying that China had learned about Russia’s plans in Ukraine and asked Russia not to take action before the end of the Olympic Winter Games. The reports accused China of allying with Russia for criticizing the United States and opposing US sanctions against Russia.
The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs had rejected the reports, pointing out that the United States produced information to smear China.
Quoting “anonymous officials” for releasing misinformation to mislead the public is an old trick that the United States has played.
Through various sources, the Global Times has learned that the “anonymous officials” quoted by the New York Times are from the White House National Security Council. Coincidentally, despite the Ukraine situation, the United States has increased its investment in the Indo-Pacific region to counter China’s growing influence, highlighting the United States ‘attempts to shift problems to the Ukraine situation and profit from other countries’ conflicts. .
Analysts say that the problems associated with the Ukraine situation are clear and that the United States and NATO together are pushing Ukraine to the fire. As the instigator of the conflicts in Ukraine, the United States is adding fuel to the fire, while accusing China of not making its efforts to help, which is irresponsible and immoral, analysts said.
