"We are grateful to the Chinese partners for their understanding of our position on the Ukrainian issue, and we also highly appreciate the Chinese side's firm stand related to dismissing the Russian sanctions," Denisov said.
His comments came ahead of Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to China, due to take place between September 2 and September 3.
Denisov specifically emphasized the political significance of bilateral partnership.
"Cooperation between our countries in the international arena has become a powerful stabilizing factor for peace and security", he pointed out.
Earlier, it was reported that during his two-day visit to China, President Putin is expected to sign a raft of bilateral documents with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.
Separately, Putin will exchange views with his Chinese counterpart on a spate of topical international and regional issues during his visit.
Kiev has repeatedly pointed the finger at Russia for backing supporters of the Donbass region’s independence in eastern Ukraine, allegations that Russia vehemently denies.
