Per Chinese "Plan".

I want to stress that this "plan" is a classic exercise in ambiguity--aka for everything good, against everything bad--which is exactly what is needed for Russia at this time. Generalities and obfuscations. That is why Moscow favorably met those "proposals". 

МОСКВА, 24 фев — РИА Новости. Москва высоко ценит искреннее стремление китайских друзей внести вклад в урегулирование конфликта на Украине мирным путем, сообщается на сайте Министерства иностранных дел России."Разделяем соображения Пекина. Привержены принципам соблюдения Устава ООН, норм международного права, в том числе гуманитарного, неделимости безопасности, согласно которому безопасность одной страны не должна укрепляться в ущерб безопасности другой, что применимо и к безопасности отдельных групп стран", — говорится в заявлении.
Translation: MOSCOW, February 24 - RIA Novosti. Moscow highly appreciates the sincere desire of Chinese friends to contribute to the settlement of the conflict in Ukraine by peaceful means, according to the website of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. "We share Beijing's views. We are committed to the principles of observing the UN Charter, the norms of international law, including humanitarian law, the indivisibility of security, according to which the security of one country should not be strengthened at the expense of the security of another, which is also applicable to the security of certain groups of countries," the statement says.
Moscow is totally for diplomatic peaceful solution... based on her "proposals" from December 2021. Russia has some excellent international law lawyers, plus, everybody in Russia knows this Ostap Bender's phrase from immortal 12 Chairs by Ilf and Petrov. And no less immortal original movie by Leonid Gaidai.
-So, you wanna say that this is your boy?
-A boy. Those who want to say that he is a girl, let them first cast the stone. 
You see, Moscow also can play dumb, while being very shrewd. Nuland and her neocon cabal who pretend that they know Russia, should have studied modern Russian culture (XX-XXI centuries) more thoroughly. But then again, don't hold you breath.
