The Chinese Communist Party reportedly asked Russia to wait until after the Winter Olympics in Beijing before sending troops into Ukraine, U.S. officials said.

The information was collected by a Western intelligence service before the invasion, and the U.S. considers it credible, the New York Times reported.

The intelligence report shows that China had some knowledge of Russia's plans.

The U.S. and its allies used the information to help determine when Russia might invade.

The Olympics ended on Feb. 20, and Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered troops into Ukraine on Feb. 24.

Chinese Embassy spokesman in Washington, D.C., told the Times:

"These claims are speculation without any basis, and are intended to blame-shift and smear China."

China President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin met on Feb. 4, but it's unclear if they spoke about the timing of the invasion.

China has avoided criticizing Putin over the war, although it hasn't openly supported him.

The country backed up Russia over its concerns about NATO but has claimed that it is neutral on the invasion and said it supports the "sovereignty" of all countries, according to the Times.

Last week, Neon Nettle reported a state-run Chinese news organization accidentally leaked its censorship rules surrounding the Russian invasion of Ukraine, revealing that China "needs" Russia's support when it wrestles "with America to solve the Taiwan issue once and for all."

Business Insider reported:

"Horizon News, a subset of Beijing News, which is owned by the Chinese Communist Party, posted 'instructions' on how to cover the escalating tensions to its Weibo page on Tuesday."

"In the Weibo post, Horizon News stated that any content painting Russia unfavorably would not be published.

"The same applied to any pro-Western framing."

"Simply put, China has to back Russia up with emotional and moral support while refraining from treading on the toes of the United States and European Union," Ming Jinwei, a senior editor at the Xinhua News Agency — the official press agency of the Chinese government — wrote in a WeChat blog cited by The Washington Post.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump warned China was going to take over Taiwan after watching Russia invade Ukraine.

During an appearance on "The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show" at his Mar-a-Lago estate, Trump responded to the latest news about Russia moving forces into Ukraine:

"By the way, this never would have happened with us. Had I been in office, not even thinkable. This would never have happened," Trump said.

"But [Putin] says, you know, 'I'm gonna declare a big portion of Ukraine independent,' he used the word 'independent,' 'and we're gonna go out, and we're gonna go in, and we're gonna help keep the peace,'" Trump added.
