LibreOffice Writer (or really Draw in this case) is not a PDF viewer. But it can edit PDFs. So it may be absolutely expected that it requires many resources to render/convert PDF with many schemes and graphics. Use PDF viewer instead: Atril (default in MATE); Evince (default in GNOME); Okular (default in KDE); etc.
