BANGKOK -- Myanmar junta chief Min Aung Hlaing arrived in Moscow on Monday to meet with senior Russian military and government officials, looking to bolster ties with a crucial partner amid growing international backlash against his regime.

Myanmar's commander-in-chief met with Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of the Russian Security Council and a close aide to President Vladimir Putin.
