(PatrioticPost.com)- Rumors that China is airlifting supplies to Russia despite President Vladimir Putin’s ongoing war in Ukraine have been fueled by reports that Russian transport aircraft has visited China many times in recent days.
Russian Antonov An-124 transport planes visited China nine times in seven days, according to flight-tracking systems, according to a November 27 report by the Ukrainian military news portal Defense Express.
The news source shared a video on its Telegram channel that was allegedly shot at China’s Henan province’s Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport.
According to Defense Express, the video depicts a Russian business Volga-Dnepr An-124 aircraft landing at the airport. Commenters allege the plane was carrying military gear, including helmets, bulletproof vests, and uniforms.
Zhengzhou is a significant logistics and transportation center between China and Europe.
Defense Express claims that over the past seven days, flight-tracking services have recorded nine An-124 “Ruslan” flights to China but only three in the opposite direction, “directly indicating that the transponder was turned off during some of the flights.”
According to the news source, RA-82074, RA-82044, and RA-82081 aircraft are engaged in “transportation,” It has been speculated that Russia is sending the aircraft to carry military goods.
Just a few weeks into the conflict, in March, the Chinese Ambassador to the United States, Qin Gang, said that China had not given military weapons to Russia any thought.
“Regarding China helping Russia militarily, there is misinformation. We disagree with it. “During an interview with CBS News’s Face the Nation, Qin said when questioned about the matter.
When host Margaret Brennan questioned China’s top envoy in Washington, Qin, on whether Beijing intended to “provide a lifeline to Vladimir Putin” in the conflict, Qin responded negatively.
“China rejects war and supports peace. China is a peaceful nation,” Qin declared.
China is giving Russia humanitarian aid in the shape of “foods, medicine, sleeping bags, and infant formula,” he claimed.
President Xi Jinping of China has received a warning from President Biden over the “implications and consequences” if China supports Russia financially in Ukraine.
