Media: Blinken will warn China about "punitive measures" due to the export of military technology to the Russian Federation

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken intends to warn China about “punitive measures,” which the USA will resort to if Beijing does not stop supplying the Russian Federation with military technology. This is reported by the Financial Times with reference to its own sources.

As the newspaper notes, during a visit to China next week, Blinken will tell his colleagues in China that the US and its allies are becoming increasingly impatient with Beijing's refusal to stop providing Moscow needs everything to help rebuild its industrial base.

For example, 70% of Russian imports of machine tools in the last quarter of last year came from China and are likely used to manufacture ballistic missiles.

Blinken does not plan to reveal what measures the US will take, but several people familiar with the situation said the US was considering sanctions against Chinese financial institutions and other entities.

One FT spokeswoman said his message will be the clearest warning the US has given personally to Chinese officials.
