“Friends with No Limits?” The Future of China-Russia Relations

Event Format
In person
Hall A, Science Center, 1 Oxford Street Cambridge

A year after the Russian invasion of Ukraine, are China and Russia still “friends with no limits?” Since embracing that phrase, Chinese President Xi Jinping has sought, on occasion, to publicly distance Beijing from Moscow. Is that actually happening, or is this just a mirage?  Over the past year, bilateral trade has more than doubled, with China offering much-needed economic support to blunt the impact of Western sanctions. Could Chinese contributions undermine EU, U.S., and G7 country sanctions and prolong Putin’s war? What are the prospects for Sino-Russian partnership in politics, defense, and intelligence?
