“It is very good that this balloon was shot down because it sends a clear signal. China – whatever it says – cannot have the slightest hope of flying over the territory of the United States” – Dr. Bonikowsja on Polish Radio [05.02.2023]
It is a matter of the coming months. Balloons will not be crucial, but what China will do in the context of Russia will be crucial. This year will be largely decisive for the war in Ukraine. Of course, the United States has become fully involved. There is no turning back for the Americans with this scale of aid (…). The US is doing everything to weaken Russia to such an extent that it cannot be, in a sense, a serious base for China in the future, said Dr Bonikowska, president of the Centre for Foreign Relations.
