Today, Scott Morrison responded to an article in Hong Kong’s “South China Morning Post” that said China had decided to fully open up imports of Russian wheat.
Noting that Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union and Japan are imposing sanctions on Russia, Morrison said China’s easing of trade restrictions was “simply unacceptable.”
In his words: “Do not launch a redemption line for Russia the moment it invades another country.”
On Thursday, Russia launched a military attack on Ukrainian territory, with ground forces and bombing targets in several cities, which has already killed at least half a hundred people, 10 of whom are civilians, on Ukrainian territory, according to Kiev.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said the “special military operation” in Ukraine was aimed at “disarming and discrediting” its neighbor and that it was the only way for the country to defend itself. From its “consequences” and “importance”.
The international community in general immediately condemned the attack, and prompted emergency meetings of several governments, including the Portuguese, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the European Union and the United Nations Security Council.
