Russia Reaffirms Support for Myanmar’s Junta After Execution of Activists

SINGAPORE—Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov visited Myanmar for talks on Wednesday, the latest demonstration of the two countries’ close diplomatic ties as they both face Western condemnation.

Russia has emerged as one of the most-visible backers of Myanmar’s military junta that seized power in a coup last year. While the U.S. and many other Western democracies shun the military regime, Moscow has twice hosted coup leader Gen. Min Aung Hlaing for diplomatic meetings, including discussions on defense relations, and last year dispatched a senior defense official for a military event in Myanmar’s capital, Naypyitaw. The junta in turn has voiced support for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
