Chinese officials knew about Russian invasion - report

Senior Chinese officials asked top Russian officials not to invade Ukraine before the end of the Winter Olympics in Beijing, a report by the New York Times citing senior Biden administration and European officials said.

According to the report, Chinese officials knew Russia's plans before the invasion began last week. Although the information about the communication between Chinese and Russian officials was classified, it was collected by a Western intelligence service and considered credible by those who reviewed it.

Sources familiar with the report said the material did not necessarily show that talks about an invasion took place at the level of Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
