US sources confirm use of Chinese munitions against Ukraine
The US has confirmed the use of Chinese munitions in Ukraine. However, it is still unknown whether they were delivered directly by Beijing
Japanese news agency Kyodo News reported the information.
According to the media outlet, Washington is poised to take action if there is confirmation that the supply was carried out by Beijing.
It also adds that the day before, US officials said that Washington had intelligence indicating that Beijing was considering supplying arms and ammunition to Russia.
"It's something that we are vigilant about and continuing to watch carefully," said a US State Department spokesman.
The fact that the ammunition was made in China is evidenced, in particular, by the analysis of its composition. However, the sources do not disclose what kind of ammunition was found. It is also noted that the US has already warned its partners about this.
On March 18, the Institute for the Study of War suggested that the topic of talks between the leaders of Russia and China would be Xi Jinping's mediation in the war in Ukraine and ways to evade sanctions.
