Putin was recently photographed resting peacefully as Ukrainian athletes were introduced at the Beijing Winter Olympics
With recent events concerning Russia and Putin’s troop buildup near the Russian border with Ukraine, Putin took a trip to China to strengthen ties with Xi Jinping.
In addition to Putin and Jinping, countries with notably questionable leaders were in attendance. Two names are Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman and Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.
Serbian, Argentinian, Ecuadorian, and Mongolian Presidents were in attendance as well, with these countries taking an undecided stance, although unlikely to voice any opinion criticizing Putin.
