Russia is now a colony of China: will Beijing supply weapons to Russia in large quantities
Chinese President Xi Jinping visited dictator Vladimir Putin in Moscow. It is likely that they will discuss the supply of Chinese weapons to Russia.
This was announced on Channel 24 by military analyst, reserve major of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, veteran of the Russian-Ukrainian war Alexei Getman. In his opinion, Putin will try to negotiate the supply of Chinese weapons. In response, he may offer not money, but something else.
Will China supply weapons to Russia
As Hetman noted, it is very doubtful that China will really be interested in money in exchange for its own weapons. Here we can talk about energy resources and not only.
It could be energy. Although China is already getting them almost for nothing. They will probably talk about some territories. Or even we can talk about the possibility of using Russia's “nuclear triad” if necessary. Although it is not clear what condition she is in,” Hetman suggested.

In general, according to Hetman, China's cooperation with Russia will continue until such time as it is beneficial for Beijing. Now Russia is actually a colony. Energy resources are exported from there, and Chinese goods are brought in. However, Beijing will still be cautious in the supply of weapons.
According to Hetman, China can indeed transfer shells and ammunition to Russia in limited quantities. But there will be no transfer of modern weapons. Beijing is aware that Russia can lose the war in Ukraine. And being on the side of the underdogs is a bad situation for China.
