Russia-China Relations One Year after the Invasion of Ukraine, with Bonnie Glaser, Dmitry Gorenburg, Richard Weitz, Yusuke Anami

By Andrea Kendall-Taylor, Jim Townsend, Yusuke Anami, Bonnie Glaser, Dmitry Gorenburg and Richard Weitz

As Russia has become increasingly isolated on the international stage following its invasion of Ukraine last February, it has sought to deepen its ties with remaining partners such as China. While Beijing has so far provided only limited support to Moscow over the past year, reports that it may be considering sending lethal aid to bolster the Russian war effort suggest a potential inflection point in the relationship.

This special edition of Brussels Sprouts includes a recording of a live CNAS event from Wednesday, March 29th. The discussion features a panel of experts to discuss the deepening relationship between Russia and China.

Yusuke Anami is a professor of Modern Chinese Political History and Contemporary Chinese Politics at Tohoku University.

Bonnie Glaser is the managing director of the Indo-Pacific Program at the German Marshall Fund

Dmitry Gorenburg is a senior research scientist of Russia studies at the Center for Naval Analyses.

Richard Weitz is the senior fellow and director of the Center for Political-Military Analysis at the Hudson Institute.
