During the interview, the topic of Russia’s trade relations with China was also touched upon. Putin mentioned that trade turnover between the countries has reached record highs.

“We set a goal with my colleague, friend, with President Xi Jinping to reach $200 billion in trade turnover with China this year. And we have exceeded this bar. According to our data, it is already 230 billion dollars, according to Chinese statistics – 240 billion dollars,” said the Russian president.
