Russia has asked China for military support, including drones, as well as economic assistance for its unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, according to conversations CNN had with two US officials. The requests came after the invasion, one of the officials said. That official declined to detail the Chinese reaction but indicated that the Chinese had responded. Both the Chinese and Russian governments publicly denied that the request happened. News of Russia's request came before White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan met with his Chinese counterpart, Yang Jiechi, in Rome on Monday as part of a follow-up conversation to President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping's virtual meeting last November, according to National Security Council spokesperson Emily Horne. Sullivan told Dana Bash on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday that China providing Russia with support is a "concern."

"We also are watching closely to see the extent to which China actually does provide any form of support, material support or economic support, to Russia. It is a concern of ours. And we have communicated to Beijing that we will not stand by and allow any country to compensate Russia for its losses from the economic sanctions," Sullivan said. China says it was not asked by Russia for military equipment or other assistance. When asked by CNN about the reporting, Liu Pengyu, spokesperson for the Chinese embassy in the US, said in a statement, "I've never heard of that." Liu expressed concern for "the Ukraine situation" -- calling it "indeed disconcerting" -- and said China has and will continue to provide humanitarian assistance to Ukraine. Liu said: "The high priority now is to prevent the tense situation from escalating or even getting out of control. ... China calls for exercising utmost restraint and preventing a massive humanitarian crisis."

Does China want to further sully its already problematic globall reputation?

Memo to Liu Pengyu: The Russian invasion of Ukraine has already generated the worst refugee problem in Europe since World War II.
More 100% invented nonsense .

US getting desperate as nothing is stopping the Russian peacekeeping mission from de-Nazifying Khazaria .

Again, you can't have Ukraine be both Nazi and Jewish, you talk about de-Nazifying, and then you use neo-Nazi conspiracy language by calling Ukraine Khazaria.
