This information was reported by the Russian news agency TASS.

Today, Vladimir Putin, the leader of Russian terrorists, will take part in an official meeting with the Chinese leader, Xi Jinping, and his wife, Peng Liyuan.

Putin plans to stay in Beijing for two days, from October 17 to 18. During his visit, he is scheduled to have discussions with Vietnam’s President Vo Van Thuong, Thailand’s Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin, Mongolia's President Ukhnaagiin Khürelsükh, Pakistan's Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, and Lao People's Democratic Republic President Thongloun Sisoulith.

What we know about the meeting between Putin and Xi Jinping 

On September 19, the Secretary of the Security Council of Russia, Patrushev, announced that Vladimir Putin plans to visit China in October for a meeting with the leader of China, Xi Jinping.

Later, Daniel Fried, a former coordinator of the US State Department for sanctions, believes that we should not expect a significant change in the relationship between China and Russia.

Diplomat Valery Chaly thought that Putin's visit to China would be mostly ceremonial. He believed that the Russian president is showing support and fostering good relations with the Chinese leader for his significant goals, which he discussed at the party congress.

Volodymyr Ohryzko, a diplomat and former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine (2007-2009), said on Espreso TV that China remembers that Russia once took part of its land and is anticipating a change in Putin's leadership. This may not result in a long-lasting conflict, but rather a specific Chinese operation to reclaim the territory that Russia had previously taken from China.
