Opinion: China and Russia want to surf Latin America's 'pink tide.' It's not so simple

Right wing Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and Russian President Vladimir Putin met in Moscow Wednesday in the thick of the Ukrainian crisis. Given his disastrous handling of Covid-19 and his standing in polls forecasting next October's elections, it may be Bolsonaro's last trip to Russia, or anywhere, as president. If what many observers have called a "new pink tide" of support for left-leaning politicians continues to sweep through Latin America, former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva may banish an increasingly isolated Bolsonaro from office.
