Russians are laughing, Ukrainians are crying, and Chinese are debating. G7 seemed to forget the war in Ukraine and the energy crisis in Europe too.

The G7's plan for Ukraine and the energy crisis in Europe is to set a Russian oil export price cap to stop Russia from financing the war by selling the oil in the coming month and Europe gets energy from Russia.

As we all know, most of Russia's oil was sold to China and India since the Russia-Ukraine war began.

Can G7 get China to work with them by putting a price cap on Russian oil, or stay neutral, or out of it? Not a chance at all from the current point of view.

India will certainly not agree to it if China objects since India has been profiting from buying Russian oil to sell to some other countries. The European energy crisis therefore will be intense more and more with the temperature going down day by day.

Has the US achieved its goal to have an unstable and cold Europe without enough energy that has to depend on the US more? and then will the US "sell" the Ukrain sometime down the road? Time will tell.

As for Taiwan, the news often portrays Taiwan are willing to break away from China, but the latest survey (June 2022) shows Taiwanese still favor the status quo, not independence (see chart below).

The chart tells that since the 2nd half of 2019, the green graph( maintain status quo, move toward independence ) began going down; whereas the blue line ( maintain status quo indefinitely) has significantly been increasing.

Why does such a change take place even at the height of the pandemic and the allegations of virus made from Wuhan Lab?

I don't know how people on the mainland and even in CFC think about it. But people in Taiwan are not stupid. The US takes China as its rival, and people in Taiwan don't want to be used as a pawn for the US global strategy.

The military drilling and missile firing around Taiwan can declare the sovereignty China has over Taiwan, just as the 1950s to 1960s did shelling Jinman Island at a fixed time of each day with breaks on holidays or missiles fired near Taiwan in 1997. But be wise not to go too far into a war.

A Russia and a most destroyed Ukraine now is an alive lesson for the people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait.

Chinese are always debating, when allowed.

你的标题排比句辱华了。
Russian
Ukrainian
Chinese
前两国人后缀都是-ian,即”贤人“的意思
唯独厉害国降格为-ese,即”椅子“的意思,供贤人屁股落座。
俄罗斯当贤人也罢了,小小的乌克兰,竟然也捞了个贤人的英语后缀。
我不服!
