Clearly, Russia is increasingly struggling to find international funding to finance investment and trade. Sanctions are becoming more painful and damaging.

It is significant that China wants to protect her many other geopolitical interests other than Russia.

  1. The Chinese will do what they can to help Russia but not to the point where their own interests and ability to get paid are put at risk.
