U.S. sees no signs of China planning to support Russia's invasion of Ukraine

The U.S. Department of State said they have not seen any indication that China is preparing to assist Russian President Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine or assist Russia in evading sanctions.

That's according to U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price, Ukrinform reports, citing CNN.

"We are looking at every single bit of information we have. We have seen nothing as of yet at least to indicate that the PRC is taking a different approach when it comes to security assistance, when it comes to efforts to systematically help Russia evade sanctions," Price said.

He added that the U.S. is "continuing to watch" what China does on Ukraine, and said that remarks by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi indicate that China has "a degree of unease with what Russia is doing in Ukraine."
