EU to sanction Chinese companies supporting Russian war effort

The European Union has proposed imposing sanctions on Chinese companies accused of selling material that could be used for weapons to help the Russian war effort, the Financial Times reported on Sunday, which said it had able to consult a document.

According to the newspaper, several Chinese companies are targeted in a new set of sanctions which will be debated this week by EU member countries.

Those firms, the FT said, are mainland China-based 3HC Semiconductors and King-Pai Technology, Hong Kong-based Sinno Electronics, Sigma Technology, Asia Pacific Links, Tordan Industry and Alpha Trading Investments.

On Monday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said China urges the EU to avoid going down the “wrong path” or it will take firm measures to protect its rights and his interests.

“China opposes acts that use Sino-Russian cooperation as a pretext to impose illegal sanctions or long-range jurisdiction against China,” Wang Wenbin said at a press conference.
