Russia demands military hardware from China after Ukraine invasion, reports: The Tribune India

Washington, March 14

A US official said Russia had asked China for military equipment to use in its invasion of Ukraine, a request that heightened tensions over the ongoing war ahead of a meeting in Rome on Monday between top aides American and Chinese governments.

Ahead of the talks, White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan bluntly warned China to avoid helping Russia evade global sanctions that have hit the Russian economy. “We will not allow this to continue,” he said. China in turn accused the United States of spreading “disinformation” on Monday.

A US official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive issues, said that in recent days Russia had requested support from China, including military hardware, to advance its ongoing war with Ukraine. The official did not provide details on the scope of the request. The request was first reported by the Financial Times and the Washington Post.

Meanwhile, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday that Russia had not requested military assistance from China and had sufficient military clout to achieve all of its goals in Ukraine on time and in their entirety. Agencies
