Abstract

Since the annexation of Crimea in 2014, Russia's "eastward pivot" has intensified, mainly observable as strengthened relations with China, which appear to be evolving into a quasi-alliance. This places in question Russian attempts at diversification in the Asia-Pacific, and its position in Central Asia, where China's Belt and Road Initiative challenges Russian influence.
