Amid the rupture between Russia and the West, Moscow continues to drift toward closer relations with Beijing. Their partnership is becoming deeper and more comprehensive, encompassing security, economics, technology, and global governance.

The proportion of Chinese trade in Russia’s overall trade turnover has nearly doubled in less than a decade. Military cooperation has also reached a new level: Russia sells its latest hardware to China, and the two countries hold joint military exercises on an increasingly large scale and over an ever-expanding geographical area, from the Baltic to the South China Sea. Some of these aspects of the Sino-Russian axis are evident in Europe. Join us for a Carnegie-hosted seminar that will explore the following questions:

  • How deep really is the Sino-Russian relationship?
  • What aspects of European security and economic interests are challenged?
  • How can and should the EU, UK, and transatlantic partnership respond?

Please join Richard Connolly, Alexander Gabuev, Natasha Kuhrt and Henry Foy to explore these issues and more. To submit a question for the event, please use the YouTube chat or tweet at us @CarnegieRussia.
