US Report Claims China Supplying Military And Tech Support To Russia

Must Read

US has accused China of aiding Russia in dual ways, one to elude restrictions by the Western nations and another by providing Russia with military and dual-use technology for its military efforts in Ukraine, according to an unclassified U.S. intelligence report made public on Thursday.

The US House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released the assessment by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

Since Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, China has frequently denied supplying Russia military hardware.

The ODNI report read, “The PRC is providing some dual-use technology that Moscow’s military uses to continue the war in Ukraine, despite an international cordon of sanctions and export controls. The customs records show PRC state-owned defense companies shipping navigation equipment, jamming technology, and fighter jet parts to sanctioned Russian Government-owned defense companies.”

As a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last year, China has allegedly become “an even more critical partner” of Russia, according to the report.

According to ODNI, financial institutions in both China and Russia are using domestic payment systems more frequently, and the proportion of their bilateral trade that is settled in yuan currency has increased.

According to the research, China has boosted the amount of energy exports from Russia it is importing, including gas and oil diverted from Europe.

Many of the details were highlighted in media stories by ODNI. “The Intelligence Community lacks sufficient reporting to assess whether Beijing is deliberately inhibiting United States Government export control end-use checks, including interviews and investigations, in the PRC.”

Emmanuel Bonne, the top foreign policy advisor to French President Emmanuel Macron, claimed earlier this month that China was sending Russia goods that might be used as military hardware, albeit not in significant quantities.

Concerns about shipments of “dual-use equipment” from China to Russia have already been voiced by U.S. authorities. They have, however, stated time and time again that they have not yet seen proof of the transmission of deadly assistance for use by Russia on the battlefield.
