Xi Jinping

Xi Jinping has been the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party and the leader of China since 2012 (link to his Wikipedia page below). Unlike most other world leaders, Xi has not come out forcefully against Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, and this has led to the accusation that he is sympathetic to the Russian cause. Many memes will portray a lopsided power dynamic between Xi and Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is shown as subservient to China because of the need for major allies in the war.
