"They don't share our values".
I know! They spout crap like this:
[...] democracy is a means of citizens' participation in the government of their country with the view to improving the well-being of population and implementing the principle of popular government.

and even
[Russia and China] reiterate the need for consolidation, not division of the international community, the need for cooperation, not confrontation.

The sides intend to resist attempts to substitute universally recognized formats and mechanisms that are consistent with international law for rules elaborated in private by certain nations or blocs of nations.

The horror! Who would want to live in a world like that?
