• Russia's Invasion of Ukraine:

    Impact on Sino-Russian Relations

    ICAS-YCAPS Webinar (via Zoom) -- 1700 (JST) 6 April 2022


    Over the past decade, China and Russia's strategic partnership has reached new heights, with the leaders of both countries declaring a "no limits" friendship in early February. However, the Russian invasion of Ukraine three weeks later has placed China in an uncomfortable position, as it had to choose between supporting its partner or condemning an invasion that breached some of Beijing's core principles, including state sovereignty and territorial integrity. This session will focus on how Vladimir Putin's decision to attack Ukraine is impacting the strategic partnership between Russia and China.
