Abstract. The article presents an analysis of the peace initiative to resolve the Ukrainian crisis put forward by People’s Republic of China (PRC) in February 2023. The initiative has attracted notable international attention and has been widely discussed both in the media and expert circles, as well as at political consultations of the world leaders. The article aims to show the significance of this peace initiative for China’s broader foreign policy and international relations and to demonstrate a major increase in China's foreign policy activity and international influence observed in recent years. In particular, by launching this and several other diplomatic initiatives in 2022–2023, Beijing has sought to put into practice the provisions on “responsibility for the future of the world” declared by Chairman Xi Jinping. The PRC’s peace plan for Ukraine is one of the important components of the “Global Security Initiative” concept proposed by Xi Jinping. The concept marks a new stage in China’s foreign policy by positioning it as one of the world’s largest powers with global interests. The article also assesses the prospects of China’s peace initiative in terms of its impact on resolving the Ukrainian crisis.

中国对乌克兰的和平方案是该国外交政策的体现

这篇文章是对中华人民共和国领导人于2023年2月提出关于乌克兰危机的和平方案的分析。该倡议已成为一个突出的国际事件,在媒体和专家界以及世界领导人的政治磋商层面得到广泛讨论。文章旨在说明中国的和平倡议对中国外交政策和国际关系发展的意义,并在此背景下展示近年来中国外交政策活动和国际影响力的显着增长。特别是,通过这一倡议和2022-2023年提出的其他一些外交倡议,北京正在寻求将中国领导人习近平提出的"对世界未来的责任"的规定付诸实践。中国提出的关于乌克兰危机的和平方案是习近平提出的"全球安全倡议"构想的重要组成部分之一。该和平方案标志着中国外交政策的一个新阶段,即把自己定位为一个具有全球利益的世界大国。本文还评估了中国和平倡议对解决乌克兰危机前景的影响。
