Warning War, Thousand China Soldiers Joins Russian Troops to Against US Military
The Commerce Department emphasizes that such actions threaten the national interests of the United States
58 Chinese and 45 Russian companies and organizations will not be able to purchase a number of goods and technologies in the United States without a special license.

Roscosmos CEO Dmitry Rogozin said on Facebook that “military end users are arbitrarily classified as companies that were not and are not.”.

“China is strongly opposed to the US move and will take the necessary steps to protect the legitimate rights of Chinese companies,” the PRC Ministry of Commerce said in a statement..
The list compiled by the US Department of Commerce is not definitive. The agency said US companies should continue to exercise the necessary diligence to help decide whether the end-users of their products are military-related..
Recall that the US government is concerned about China’s “military-civilian merger”, i.e. the policy of official Beijing, aimed at the simultaneous build-up of military strength and technological development.
