US Warns China Against Helping Russia

China will face consequences if it helps Russia evade sanctions in its invasion of Ukraine, the US says.

Unnamed US officials told multiple news outlets that China had signalled willingness to provide military assistance to Russia.

The Chinese foreign ministry accused the US of spreading disinformation. Russia denied asking Beijing for military help.

The exchanges came before top US and Chinese officials met in Rome.

Media outlets, citing Washington officials, say that Russia has in recent days asked China specifically for military equipment, including drones.

On Monday, the US warned allies that China had suggested it was open to a move to provide military and economic support, media reports said.

The report came as US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan met China’s top diplomat, Yang Jiechi, for talks in Rome.

“Mr Sullivan raised a range of issues in US-China relations, with substantial discussion of Russia’s war against Ukraine,” a readout of the meeting said. “They also underscored the importance of maintaining open lines of communication between the United States and China.”

In an earlier CNN interview, Mr Sullivan said the US was “communicating directly, privately to Beijing that there will absolutely be consequences for large-scale sanctions evasion efforts or support to Russia to backfill them”.

“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,” he said.

He added that while the US believed China was aware that Russian leader Vladimir Putin was “planning something” before the invasion happened, Beijing “may not have understood the full extent of it”.

  1. Mehn, you know you are the loser of all losers when you are going out on a limb defending criminals day in, day out. Making up narratives to suit your propaganda. Barf!

    • This post by Angel impelled me to to visit the nearest dictionary to confirm what I thought the meaning of the word “projection” was. No surprise…viz.

      Projection: the attribution of one’s own ideas, feelings, or attitudes to other people or to objects;
      especially : the externalization of blame, guilt, or responsibility as a defense against anxiety

      Therefore, the retching is an involuntary response to the cognitive dissonance brought on by that self-same projection!

  2. The end of the United States as superpower is upon us.

    “…Dear America:

    How do you like your high gas prices? $7.55 a gallon? Do you blame President Putin for this, like this poor man apparently does?

    No bones about it – these prices simply suck. The average price of gasoline is around $4.32 per gallon nationwide. The lowest reported price ranges are still very high, at $3.81 per gallon.

    But, seriously, this man wants to send President Putin the bill? Why? Putin did not cut off Russian oil to the United States. The United States did that to itself, per Joe Biden. In Russia right now, the gas prices are relatively low, especially when taking into account the seriously battered ruble. In fact, the highest prices I am seeing in Moscow are about 60 rubles per liter for the most premium grades of gasoline, like 94 octane stuff. Sixty rubles is about $0.50 per liter right now, due to the seriously impacted exchange rates, so with a liter being a slightly higher volume than a quart, Russian gas prices are maxing out at about $1.94 per gallon.

    The United States’ “wokery” is bringing down a disaster upon its own people, and in the case of this irate gentleman, he does not realize this.”

  3. Notwithstanding the incessant propaganda from the British Bull$#!t Corporation as news of current events for the great unlearned masses of the world, there are alternative sources for the truth.

    In the article, The Great Decoupling: How Western Sanctions Are Pushing Moscow East, Scott Ritter writes the following…

    “By seeking an economic divorce from Russia, US President Joe Biden and his European allies ignored the time-tested saying, “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.” In doing so, they have enabled the complete economic decoupling of Russia from the West. The resulting Russian economic union with China will transform global geopolitical reality, to the detriment of those who sought these sanctions in the first place”.

    And for those who are averse to reading the truth, by using the phrase, “too long, didn’t read,” Steve Turley’s short video captures the essential bits to resolve your Attention Deficit, Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD):

    Russia, China, and India are CRUSHING Liberal Globalism!!!
