Chinese journalists noted that Putin's public demeanor at the press conference was surprising for China, as reported by the publication Sohu. according to AB News24.

"Putin has somehow changed," write the authors of the Chinese publication.

Sohu experts observed that Putin was more confident than ever at the press conference. He was relaxed, constantly joking, and actively engaging with the audience. This was somewhat unusual, as in recent months he had behaved differently, being more stern and serious.
