A new Sino-Russian Entente?

The limits of cooperation on Ukraine and beyond

Abstract

As the military standoff over Ukraine continues, both sides have attempted to mobilize international support for their respective positions. While Kiev has received in­creasingly robust NATO backing, Russia has turned to its “strategic partner” China. A recently published joint Sino-Russian statement has fueled speculation that Beijing could weigh in on Moscow’s side and perhaps even lead to the resurgence of competition between ideo­logical blocs in world politics. However, diverging interests on Ukraine limit such co­operation in the short term. A long-term align­ment between both sides is a more serious possibility, but can still be influenced by Western policy choices.
