Putin wants to meet Xi during the Beijing Winter Olympics

“We are preparing an official Russian-Chinese summit,” said Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Friday at a press conference at the start of the year in Moscow. It had previously been announced that Putin had accepted China’s invitation to the games.

Because of sanctions in response to state-organized doping, Russian athletes cannot officially compete for their country at the Winter Games from February 4 to 20 in Beijing, but only for the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC).
