Over the course of two meetings between Vladimir Putin and different heads of state, it is possible to perceive how they are received in the Kremlin.
For example, the Belarusian ruler, Alexander Lukashenko, who has been a great ally in the war against Ukraine, or Chinese President Xi Jinping and former President Jair Bolsonaro stood side by side with the Russian leader, barely separated by a month.
There is a different reception to Emmanuel Macron, who saw a meme on the internet at that time due to the distance between the two.
Macron, who has been an ally of Ukraine, was on the other side of a huge table, which was also used by Putin to receive the German chancellor Olaf Scholz.
This disposition is different from when Bolsonaro met with the Russian leader. A distance that is much less than that reserved for Western leaders.
