Russia Says Working On China Ties, Slams West's

Russia's Foreign Minister Lavrov said, "If they (the West) want to offer something in terms of resuming relations, then we will seriously consider whether we will need it or not."

Russia's decision

  • Russia's Foreign Minister said on Monday that Moscow will consider offers of re-establishing ties with the West and think whether that is needed.
  • Moscow's goal now is to further develop ties with China.
  •  "Now that the West has taken a 'dictator's position', our economic ties with China will grow even faster," Lavrov said.

Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden said "Putin is just trying to extinguish a culture. This is more than just a European issue, it's a global issue. The global food crisis may worsen by Russia blocks Ukraine from exporting its grains. As long as Russia continues the war, US will work with its partners," .
