Speaking in an interview with British broadcaster BBC, Stoltenberg said that China was "sharing a lot of technologies," including "micro-electronics, which are key for Russia to build missiles, weapons they use against Ukraine."

He added that "at some stage, we should consider some kind of economic cost if China doesn't change their behaviour," the BBC reported.

Stoltenberg told BBC News during a visit to Washington that Beijing was "trying to get it both ways" by supporting Russia's war effort, while also trying to maintain relations with European allies.

"This cannot work in the long run," Stoltenberg said in the interview.

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, starting the largest armed conflict in Europe since World War II.

Tuesday is day 846 of Russia’s war on Ukraine.
