Recent high-level interactions signal strong commitment to deepen partnership in key areas in the face of international condemnation and Western sanctions

Since the Myanmar armed forces ousted the country’s democratically elected government in February 2021, and Russia invaded Ukraine in February this year, Naypyidaw and Moscow have drawn closer together in the face of international condemnation and Western economic sanctions.

In the last month alone, high-level interactions between senior officials from the two countries have demonstrated a strong commitment to deepen collaboration in three priority areas: political succour, defence ties and energy cooperation.

By far the most significant event was coup leader and State Administration Council (SAC) Chairman Senior-General Min Aung Hlaing’s visit to Vladivostok last week.
