Western sanctions have exacerbated problems for the troubled Russian military. Their tanks and other materials are running out.” Western sanctions and export controls “make it difficult for them to build up troops and get the things they need,” he added.

Moscow uses proxy companies and Russian elites to try to avoid sanctions, but China is not very helpful. “China cannot provide Russia with what China does not have. And China does not produce the most advanced semiconductors. They are produced by our allies and partners. So Russia is looking for these things. The reason they use their intelligence services and their bombing companies to try to get them is because the countries they would naturally turn to don’t have them.”
