Original title: the US "sanctions" Chinese military personage China indignation, Russia is also angry.
On September 20, the US State Department announced that China would impose sanctions on the equipment development department of the Central Military Commission of China and the head of the Department because China had purchased Russian military equipment in violation of the "law of striking US opponents through sanctions". China's foreign ministry expressed outrage, and Russia also denounced the US's actions as "unfair".
Earlier, the U.S. State Department said in a statement, "Today's action is not intended to undermine China's military capabilities or prepare to attack any country, but to combat Russia's interference in the U.S. elections and its vicious activities in eastern Ukraine and other regions of the sanctions against Russia, Russia. A series of bad practices are unacceptable to the United States. " According to U.S. media, under a U.S. law, the United States will sanction anyone associated with the Russian intelligence and military services, including weapons manufacturers, and those who conduct major transactions.
The State Department said the Chinese military carried out a "significant transaction" with Russian export companies. The sanctions cover 10 Su-35 fighter aircraft purchased by China in 2017 and S-400 surface-to-air missile system-related equipment purchased in 2018.
The practice of the United States has caused a strong rebound between China and Russia.
Geng Shuang, a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said at a regular press conference on the 21st that China was strongly indignant at the US sanctions against Chinese military personnel. The US side has seriously violated the basic norms of international relations and seriously damaged relations between China and the United States and the two armies. We strongly urge the US side to correct its mistakes immediately and lift the so-called sanctions, otherwise the US side must bear the consequences.
The Kremlin in Russia is also intolerable to the US approach. Russia's president's press secretary stressed Monday that sanctions imposed by the United States in the field of defense industrial complexes were unfair and that Russia, the main competitor, was squeezed out by non-market means, according to Russian satellite network.
Russian experts believe that the US action is also aimed at "deterring other countries". No matter allies or enemies, the US does not want them to buy S-400. On August 23, State Department spokesman Nolte said he would not rule out the possibility of imposing sanctions on countries that buy S-400 worldwide and would strongly oppose the purchase of S-400 by partners or allies around the world. Norte specifically named Turkey and India's two allies to buy "wrong practices" on the S-400 issue. The United States said its objection was based on the fact that the system was "incompatible" with NATO's military system, and that "if the S-400 and the U.S. F-35 fighter aircraft were synchronized in actual use, it could trigger the risk of F-35 technology theft". But Russian experts believe that this is an excuse, the U. S. move is to let Russia S-400 not sell out, a comprehensive suppression of Russian arms sales, further sanctions against Russia; the second is to provide more opportunities for U. S. arms sales.
