The trip of the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin to China carries risks for Ukraine. Intelligence is closely monitoring the situation, according to the Defense Intelligence of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Andrii Yusov.

He emphasizes that any trip by Putin is closely monitored for all the risks it may entail.

But today, Russia is a raw material appendage for everyone, and if its representatives are invited somewhere, that's how it's perceived, adds the representative of Ukrainian Intelligence.

"This poses risks for us because it is clear what interests Putin in this situation. Therefore, Ukraine not only monitors but also works out various scenarios," Yusov explained.
