Details: Ushakov said that first, Putin and Xi Jinping will communicate in an expanded group, and then in the format of a business breakfast.


"It is possible that the leaders will also talk one-on-one even outside this narrow group," Ushakov said.

He added that a representative delegation of senior civil servants and businessmen will travel from Russia to China.

During his visit to China, Putin will speak at the One Belt, One Road forum, where he will promote the idea of the so-called Greater Eurasia.


  • Chinese leader Xi Jinping flew to Moscow and met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Kremlin on 20 March 2023. 
  • On 17 March 2023, the Pre-Trial Chamber II of the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin in connection with the deportation of children from the Russian-occupied territories of Ukraine. 
  • Putin hardly ever travels anywhere in order not to be arrested abroad, as the member states of the International Criminal Court are obliged to detain and bring him to trial. 
  • China is not a signatory to the Rome Statute governing the International Criminal Court. This means that the Court's jurisdiction does not apply to its territory.
