almost all wars usually have another nation or rich people supplying them that aren't at war with the other nation.

its annoying but its not 'going to war'. there are buyers, donators, and people that generally just support one side over the other.

its just a standard thing tbh. the US did it during WW1 before we entered the war. Germany mercenaries were used in the US revolutionary war. During the civil war they used French and British backers for weapons and stuff for the French side. China + Russia was bankrolling North Korea. Etc,etc,etc. Its just a normal thing for countries to support allies in times of war without being at war themselves.
