The Beijing-Moscow Joint Declaration of February 4 declared their relationship knows “no boundaries.” 20 days later, Russia brutally expanded its ongoing war against Ukraine. This sequence of events has sharpened the focus on the conduct and goals that animate the China-Russia relationship.

Ultimately, what international order will arise from this crisis?
