Russia and China are the largest suppliers of arms to Sudan, and the Wagner group is actively supporting the RSF, one of the two main factions in this conflict.

https://edition.cnn.com/2023/04/20/africa/wagner-sudan-russia-libya-intl/index.html#:~:text=The Russian mercenary group Wagner,diplomatic sources have told CNN.

... and the UK have supplied Sudan for 10 years until last year through many conflicts and human rights abuse ("Despite this catalog of harm, the UK still deems it acceptable to sell weapons and arms to Sudan" - https://aoav.org.uk/2023/uk-arms-export-to-sudan-2012-2022/). How much of all this is still used right now in Sudan arms in arms together with the Wagner group's weapons? I can never wonder enough why some people, far too many, always think it is either all white or all black in this cynical world. Probably because they choose to believe one propaganda or the other, instead of reading between the lines of both of them. And as usual, innocent populations are caught in the fire. Do you think a family cares whether one of them was killed by a Russian weapon instead of a British weapon? Did you care the last 10 years while 1000s of Sudanese people were being killed with weapons sold by your own country, even sold illegally?  Is it more acceptable?

A passionate piece of whataboutism. The article you linked to showed a whole £48k of actual arms, which won't have gone very far - any is unacceptable, but not even small change next to the arms that Russia is supplying to Sudan and other African countries, fueling conflicts to buy influence.
