US Warns China to Not Help Russia


US Warns China Not to Help Russia in the War with Ukraine.

Unnamed US officials have told different news outlets that Russia had apparently asked China for military assistance.

US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said they were “communicating directly, privately to Beijing that there will absolutely be consequences for large-scale sanctions evasion efforts or support to Russia to backfill them”.

The Chinese foreign minister has accused America of spreading disinformation on Russia asking for help from China.

“We will not allow that to go forward and allow there to be a lifeline to Russia from these economic sanctions from any country, anywhere in the world,”says Sullivan.

Some of those in the US believe that China knew that Putin was planning on to do something weeks before the invasion of Ukraine.

“Because it’s very possible that [Mr] Putin lied to them the same way that he lied to Europeans and others,” Mr Sullivan said.

The next step is to see what happens with Russia and China and if they are actually working together.
