    it depends, Lenovo use too many tech from US, so it gonna retreat from russia, same with tiktok etc. but china gonna buy alot russia wheat/oil/natural gas/commodities etc. also small/mid cap company that doesn't rely on west likely doing more business with russia. company like huawei, etc which already sanction from US, gonna keep doing business with russia.

    China won't completely stop doing business with Russia, but it won't do Russia many favours and it damned sure won't come to its rescue. Buying Russian commodities only helps Russia if China pays a higher than normal price or buys more than usual at the normal price. My bet is that China will be negotiating a very good price.

    that is not true. Russia leads in energy, nuke and hydro plants, as well as in space technologies.

    Unconfirmed sources (which means this is just what I've heard and I have no evidence) indicate that Putin believed he had 'bought' (bribed) the local leaders of the areas he intended to occupy and there would not be much resistance. Kinda like what happened in France in WW2. Except he didn't. Indeed it does sound like some of his advisors led him into a trap, the trap being a very costly and humiliating war that they told him would be quick and easy.
