Chinese President Xi Jinping has reportedly sent a letter to Vladimir Putin asking him to spell out his proposals on how to end the war.

The deputy head of Russia’s Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, met with the Chinese President on Wednesday.

Medvedev, a former Russian president, said in a video statement that he and Xi discussed an array of topics, including “the conflict in Ukraine.” Medvedev did not elaborate.

It is now claimed that he travelled to China to collect the letter.
