In contrast to “American First”, China sticks to the cooperation principle based on mutual benefits. Representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry Geng Shuang commented information on the U. S. attempts to convince Ukraine not to sale Motor Sich as the ministry reported.

“Unlike the "America First" policy pursued by some in the U.S., the principle China upholds in its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) cooperation with over 160 countries and international organizations is extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, which has produced mutually beneficial results. It is the same with our cooperation with Ukraine,” Geng Shuang stated.

According to him, such cooperation is the safe variant for Ukraine.

“I believe most countries in the world are capable of making independent, fact-based policy choices that are in their own interests,” the Chinese representative noted.

Earlier The Wall Street Journal announced that John Bolton plans to come to Kyiv to convince the leadership of Motor Sich enterprise and Ukraine’s authority not to conclude an agreement with Beijing on the sale of the enterprise. Bolton believes that the ownership of the plant will allow China to get access to important technologies.

Two Chinese companies Skyrizon and Xinwei Group filed the deal on the purchase of over 50% of shares of Motor Sich to Anti-monopoly Committee of Ukraine.

Motor Sich is the enterprise in Zaporizhia, which develops, produces, repairs and services the aviation gas turbine engines for planes and helicopters as well as industrial gas turbines.

As it was reported earlier, the officers of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) stopped the illicit activity of Motor Sich Company, which financed the activity of terrorist organization Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR). Moreover, they handed suspicion notices to the company's director and head of the financial department.

In 2018, the SBU held searches in the public joint-stock company 'Motor Sich' in Zaporizhia.
