Brussels Sprouts Live | Russia-China Relations One Year after the Invasion of Ukraine

Mar 29, 2023
11:00am to 12:00pm ET


One year after its invasion of Ukraine, Russia has grown increasingly reliant on China. Although Beijing has sought to politically distance itself from the Kremlin for fear of international blowback, especially from Europe, China has been a critical lifeline for Russia. Vocal U.S. warnings that China is contemplating providing lethal assistance to Russia only add fodder to concerns about the consequences of their deepening partnership. To provide insight into the evolving Russia-China partnership, in particular the state of bilateral defense cooperation and the challenges it presents to the United States and its allies, the Center for a New American Security hosted a live interactive recording of the Brussels Sprouts podcast on Wednesday, March 29, from 11:00AM–12:00PM EDT.
