Webinar | What Russia wants from China


Dragonfly is hosting a briefing looking at Russia’s ties with China, and what it means for Russia and the war in Ukraine.

Much was made by the Russian leadership, as well as by Russian and Western media, of President Xi’s state visit to Moscow in late March. But what does Russia’s ‘no limits’ relationship with China mean in practice for its war effort? And has the state visit altered our assessment of the trajectory of the conflict in Ukraine? 

In this briefing, we will cover: 

  • Russia’s military, political and economic position
  • China’s relations with Russia since the invasion
  • What Russia probably wanted from Xi’s high-profile visit
  • The limits to China’s support for Russia
  • The impact of the Russia-China relationship on the war in Ukraine 

The briefing will take place on Thursday, 20 April 2023 at 1600hrs London / 1700hrs Paris / 1100hrs New York / 1900hrs Dubai, and it will include an opportunity for you to pose questions to our panel.

Please note that places are limited and preference will be given to Dragonfly clients.
