As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, China and Russia had been strengthening their economic and trade ties amid tensions with Western countries, particularly the United States and its allies. China’s interest in deepening trade ties with Russia was part of its broader strategy to diversify its economic partnerships and reduce its dependence on Western markets.
China and Russia had been working together on various fronts, including energy cooperation, infrastructure projects, and military exercises. They also sought to expand trade through initiatives like the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the China-Russia-Mongolia Economic Corridor.
