The actual answer is easy, with any tech: if it spies on you and Western media are outraged, it's Chinese or Russian. If it spies on you and Western media take it easy, it's from the US. If Western media claim it doesn't spy on you, it's from US secret services.
Chinese vs. Russian: If Chinese resp. Russian media claim it's not spyware, it's Chinese resp. Russian spyware.
