The ongoing convention at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Astana, Kazakhstan had the leaders of China and Russia come face-to-face for an official meeting on camera. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping sat across each other for the talks. However, a slight glitch led to a delay in the Chinese delegation to accompany Jinping, and he was left all alone while an army of seven Russian officials sat across him.

Looking at the bizarre situation, Putin made a funny remark when the time elapsed, and he couldn’t start his speech. Calling his Chinese counterpart a “lone warrior”, he began the conversation to lighten up the tension in the absence of his entourage.

Hilarious and awkward at the same time, isn’t it?

    What China is doing today, Russia during its USSR era, has already been gone through the same pain. After coming a long way and eating away many decades and after embracing democratic ethos it will be a shame for Russia to join someone who is just recyc the old mindset that Russia already tasted. Greater humanity expects Russia to join the democratic world giving positive inputs instead of joining someone who wants to become a drag on humanity!
