Flight tracking services have recorded regular flights of heavy Russian cargo aircraft to China in recent weeks. Videos posted to Chinese social media show Russian company Volga-Dnepr’s An-124 aircraft landing at the Zhengzhou airport. Corresponding comments claim the An-124 had arrived to pick up "military aid.” Zhengzhou is a key logistics and industrial hub, and houses units of Chinese defence giant Norinco. Russia is reportedly turning to its allies amid heavy equipment losses in Ukraine and sanctions hampering production efforts. Earlier, the US has repeatedly warned China against any support to Russia related to the invasion of Ukraine.
