Putin Reached Secret Weapons Deal With China

According to leaked secret documents, a U.S. intercept of Russian intelligence revealed that Putin had reached a secret weapons deal with China.

China approved “provision of lethal aid” to Russia in its war in Ukraine earlier this year and planned to disguise military equipment as civilian items, according to a U.S. intercept of Russian intelligence revealed in leaked secret documents.

Russia says China agreed to secretly provide weapons, leaked documents show

The intercept, apparently obtained through U.S. eavesdropping on Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), was included in a top-secret summary, dated Feb. 23, of recent Ukraine- and Russia-related “products” compiled by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. It was among a number of previously unreported documents that The Washington Post obtained from a trove of images of classified files posted on a private server on the chat app Discord.

According to “signals intelligence,” the intelligence summary said, the SVR reported that China’s Central Military Commission had “approved the incremental provision” of weapons and wanted it kept secret. The report did not indicate the source of the SVR’s information.

The document, titled “The Watch Report,” and produced by the ODNI as “A Summary of Recent Reporting and Select items from [intelligence] Community,” is labeled top secret with highly restricted distribution. The China information is listed under a subhead, “BEIJING REPORTEDLY APPROVES COVERT SHIPMENTS OF LETHAL AID TO RUSSIA.”

  1. Yes, the leaker violated the 1918 Espionage Act. That said, my contention is that U.S. elites may be globalists, but the average American is a practicing isolationist. Being FORCED to pay attention to the international sphere may make the latter a better-educated voter. Great reporting!

  2. Don’t see any problem there.
    The US & NATO instigated this war in Ukraine, fully knowing that Russia had to respond to NATO expansion to Russia’s border.
    The US, NATO & Western allies are shipping $$$billions worth of lethal military equipment & financial support to Ukraine.
    The only difference in China supplying military aid to Russia is the usual US self-righteous hippocracy.
