AlJazeeraEnglish | Can Putin's diplomacy help him counter Western isolation? | Inside Story ...

Russia's President Vladimir Putin has wrapped up a two-nation Asia tour on a high. It was the first time in 24 years he'd set foot in North Korea and left Pyongyang with a new defence pact to show for it. His two-day visit to Vietnam yielded several new trade agreements with the manufacturing hub. Putin's latest state visits seem to be an attempt to bolster support amid increasing isolation over his war in Ukraine. But what do these countries stand to gain from closer ties with Moscow? And how is Washington reacting?
