From the Document: "Two developments in February 2022--the announcement by leaders of the People's Republic of China (PRC or China) and the Russian Federation (Russia) of a strategic partnership that 'knows no limits' and Russia's renewed invasion of Ukraine with tacit PRC support--may raise new considerations for Congress about the deepening China-Russia ties. China's trade, financial, and technology ties with Russia may affect the strength of U.S.-led efforts to constrain Russia, including through sanctions and export controls. China's alignment with Russia also appears to be part of broader efforts to create alternative global systems in trade, finance, and technology that could intensify and challenge the liberal global economic order.
