The ambassador's response? "Don't be naïve."
However, the host once again replied back before he had a chance to finish by saying that "it sounds naïve to say that it is not an invasion."
"Condemnation doesn't solve the problem. I will be surprised if Russia will back down by condemnation," Gang said.
The ambassador was then asked if Russia would back down if China's President Xi Jinping urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to end the invasion.
