China Issues Rare, Strongly-Worded Defense Of Russia Over US "Bullying" Sanctions

It's been no secret that over the past half-decade China and Russia have grown closer, even becoming unlikely allies (unlikely given historic 20th century antagonism), in the face of Washington pressure and sanctions on officials in both countries.

This growing cooperation on military, economic and infrastructure development fronts has now reached the next unprecedented step of Beijing publicly defending Russia, vociferously condemning the next round of proposed US sanctions on Moscow officials.

China's Foreign Ministry on Monday stated it "strongly opposes" new sanctions on top Russian officials, saying US Congressional leaders are using human rights as a "pretext" for ensuring attempts at improving US-Russia relations fail. "The US hegemonic and bullying practices are rejected by Russia and China and will meet rejection and opposition from more and more countries," the Monday statement said.
