China has accused the United States of “outright bullying and double standards” in imposing “illegal” sanctions on Chinese firms as part of the United States’ actions against Russia’s Wagner Group and related companies and individuals.
The entities were targeted for their involvement in the Ukrainian war and mercenary activities in Africa, including human rights abuses.
According to Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning, the sanctions have no legal basis and are “typical illegal unilateral sanctions.”
At a daily briefing, she told reporters that the punitive measures were “seriously harming China’s interests,” and that China “strongly rejects and deplores that and has lodged solemn complaints with the U.S. side.”
