World Trade and Invasion, One Year Later – Are We on the Brink of a New World Order?

The UN General Assembly recently called once again for ending the war in Ukraine and demanded Russia’s immediate withdrawal from the country, in line with the UN Charter. To say the least, this obviously fell on totally deaf ears as Xi Jinping put on display in Moscow the limitless friendship and bonding with Putin, all while missiles continued to be fired into Ukraine in the scheduled daily barrage. Keep in mind, China’s trade with the U.S. and E.U. is 10x that of Russia @ $1.62 trillion vs $190 million annually, making this recent visit a true head scratcher economically speaking on the surface.

At the UN Assembly, regarding ending the war, it’s worth noting the results were 141 Member States in favor and seven against, which were Belarus, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Eritrea, Mali, Nicaragua, Russia and Syria. Most notable among the 32 abstentions were China, India, Pakistan and Vietnam. My last article covered the tightrope that both India and China are walking with the U.S. regarding Russian war assistance, but let’s take a look at a few of the remaining 30 abstentions and those, other than Russia, (six countries) who blessed the killing of Ukrainian citizens.
