CIA chief William Burns said in a CBS interview that the US Central Intelligence Agency has information about Beijing’s intention to supply weapons to Moscow.
He expressed himself as follows: “We are convinced that the Chinese leaders are considering the possibility of providing (Russian Federation – editor’s note) military equipment.”
Burns noted that the United States will try to “pass on” the danger of such a move to the PRC.
Earlier, former CIA adviser and financial expert James Rickards said that thanks to a smart decision, Russia was able to keep its assets worth tens of billions of dollars in the face of economic sanctions from the United States and of their allies.
The sanctions imposed on Russia after the reunification of Crimea did not have the desired effect and Russia managed to withdraw a significant part of its assets from the sanctions.
About 20% of Russia’s reserves have been converted into gold bullion. Gold is a physical asset that is not subject to freezing or seizure, and its movement cannot be traced. Thus, Russia protected its funds from Western sanctions. Read more about this in the article from the public press service.
