Taking the Measure of a Russian-Chinese Alliance

Nov 15, 2019 | 17:00 GMT

This episode of the Stratfor podcast explores Russia and China's rapidly changing relationship with Artyom Lukin, an associate professor of international relations at Russia's Far Eastern Federal University. 

Lukin has published numerous chapters, papers and commentaries on Russia's unique dynamic with its southern neighbors in the Asia Pacific (and vice versa). In his latest book, Russia's Far East: New Dynamics in Asia Pacific and Beyond, he and co-author Rensselear Lee use this lens to examine the history and geopolitical significance of the region's vast Arctic. 

Join us for an engaging conversation as Lukin explains how Russia and China's escalating rivalry with the United States is bringing them closer together — and what the Asian juggernauts' growing economic, military and political ties may mean for the West.
