US officials say Moscow has asked Beijing for military equipment to support its invasion of Ukraine, Ukraine’s army celebrates its Turkish drones but Ankara plays down weapons sales to appease Moscow, Russia has ratcheted up the chances that it will default on its debt with a threat to pay international bondholders in roubles rather than dollars, and sanctions are forcing Russian banks to abandon global ambitions and focus on survival.
