Amid a Russian spokesperson “hoping” tensions do not escalate into a new cold war with the US, China has come out (perhaps unsurprisingly) on Russia’s side strongly condemning any sanctions:

“China has consistently opposed the easy use of sanctions in international relations, or using sanctions as a threat.”

The comments from China’s Foreign Ministry reflect the country’s close ties with Russia and confirm what Russia’s ambassador to Canada noted, we “can always turn to China if the West follows through on threats of tougher sanctions,” adding that “Western countries would largely be hurting themselves if they impose tougher sanctions.”
