China have seen first hand the East recently amongst international leaders that Statesmen in the East no longer deal with China, Chinese authorities or Chinese business in the same way as before.
Largely because of their association with Putin.
However if they were to deal with the new leader that comes after Putin that will allow dialogue to happen then between Russia and Ukraine – China could still have a prosperous future in the East.
The West maybe too again one day. Putin offers little commercial benefit at this point. His use has come to an end.
