Speaking at the ongoing Munich Security Conference in Munich, Germany, a representative of China at the event blamed the Ukraine War on prioritization of strategic interests by those involved, over deaths of Ukrainian people. That was reported by some media on February 19, 2023. The representative went on to calling for peace in Ukraine now.

At the same time, China Foreign Minister Wang Yi in reiterating the call for peace in Ukraine, is said to have told the conference that his country is seeking to promote peace in Ukraine through dialogue. China intends to present its peace plan for Ukraine in the next couple of days, according to the reports.

Also speaking at the conference, Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa of Namibia lambasted supply of weapons to Ukraine by NATO countries, saying that the supply of weapons should end because what it does is facilitating Ukrainians and Russians to kill each other.

NATO countries have been fuelling the Ukraine War with increasing amounts and sophistication of weapons they supply to Ukraine, while vowing that Ukraine must win it. Russia’s narrative has so far been that the supply of weapons illustrates a hybrid war by NATO against it, and that what the supply of weapons could do is just prolongation of the war.

Notwithstanding, it is very doubtful that Ukraine can win the war with weapon handouts, against one of the world’s leading manufacturers and exporters of advanced weapons. Besides, Russia is a nuclear superpower with numerous strategic and tactical nuclear weapons. Reportedly, Russia has the world’s largest stockpile of nuclear warheads amounting a staggering 5997, as of 2022. Out of the stockpile about 1600 are said to be ready for deployment by land, air, and sea. In a nutshell Russia and USA together possess more than 90% of the world nuclear weapons, with each country probably having the same number.

Security experts believe that no country can win a nuclear war, and that consequences of such a war would be horrific with millions of people killed and natural environments destroyed in countries involved. In the rest of the world, economies may collapse due to, among others, supply chain issues.
