OREANDA-NEWS  The key companies of the Military-Industrial Complex (MIC) of Russia and China continue to cooperate closely, despite Western sanctions. This is reported by CNN with reference to customs records.

According to the TV channel, during the past year, at least until mid-November, the Beijing-based defense contractor Poly Technologies sent helicopter spare parts and air-to-ground radio equipment to a state-backed Russian firm that is under sanctions.

In particular, it is noted that three deliveries from Poly Technologies were marked as including products for servicing the Mi-171Sh military transport helicopter, which can be equipped with weapons and used in combat operations.

At the same time, experts note that the parts sent by China to Russia are the basic equipment for Russian-designed aircraft.

Earlier, the US national intelligence service reported that Beijing continues to cooperate with Russia in the field of economy, defense and diplomacy, despite the discontent of the West.
