Putin and Xi Oversee Launch of Landmark Russian Gas Pipeline to China


Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping oversaw the launch of a landmark pipeline that will transport natural gas from Siberia to northeast China, an economic and political boost to ties between Moscow and Beijing.

The 3,000-km-long (1,865 mile) Power of Siberia pipeline will transport gas from Chayandinskoye and Kovytka fields in eastern Siberia, a project expected to last for 3 decades and to generate $400 billion for Russian state coffers.
