Western capitals, especially Washington and London, have been watching ties between Russia and China closely, attempting to decipher any signs of disagreement between Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping.

We discuss how China views the invasion of Ukraine, the ties between China and Russia and above all how both countries view the EU, NATO, and the transatlantic alliance.

Joining Bronwen Maddox on the show this week: Dr Yu Jie, a Senior Research Fellow with our Asia-Pacific programme; Dr Samuel Ramani, a Tutor of International Relations at the University of Oxford and author of the book Putin’s War on Ukraine; and Dr Marcin Kaczmarski, a Lecturer in Security Studies at the University of Glasgow.
