At the beginning of the meeting, Putin admitted having “carefully studied” Beijing’s proposals “to resolve the serious crisis in Ukraine”, after which he assured that they would have the opportunity to talk this afternoon about the Chinese peace plan “face to face”.
The Kremlin, which highlighted Beijing’s “balanced position” regarding the conflict, announced that Putin would give Xi definitive explanations about the causes of the problem.
Both Ukraine and the West called on Xi on Monday to use his influence on the Kremlin chief to stop the fighting as soon as possible.

Regarding the Chinese initiative, Kiev warned that, before implementing it, Russia must withdraw its troops from Ukrainian territory, alluding to the fact that Beijing’s plan does not allude to territorial integrity or the illegal annexation of four Ukrainian regions.

It is unknown if both leaders spoke of the arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court against Putin, although Beijing publicly criticized it and on Monday the Russian Investigative Committee filed a criminal case against the prosecutor and the three judges of the court.
The Kremlin announced that Putin and Xi plan to sign a dozen documents tomorrow, Tuesday, including two statements on strengthening strategic cooperation and economic interaction plans until 2030.
