Russia showed already that if there are sanctions against Iran, they will not even sell defensive weapons after a contract is signed.
China today shows that it imports 900k bpd of oil from Iran despite illegal US sanctions designed to bring Iran's oil exports to 0.
In other words, China can and does resist the US, Russia does not.
