Russian President Vladimir Putin is among the world leaders who did elect to visit the Winter Olympics in Beijing. He met his counterpart Xi Jinping just hours ahead of the Opening Ceremony.
The two leaders accused the US and NATO of “ideologized Cold War approaches” to defense policy, an illusion to Washington’s support for Ukraine and Russia’s fears that the trans-Atlantic alliance has ambitions to expand its presence on Moscow’s doorstep.
They expressed their concern about “the advancement of US plans to develop global missile defense and deploy its elements in various regions of the world, combined with capacity building of high-precision non-nuclear weapons for disarming strikes and other strategic objectives.”
