    Hospitality staff members laugh as they stand on Tiananmen Square before the closing ceremony of China's 19th Party Congress at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2017. The ruling Communist Party on Tuesday formally lifted Xi Jinping's status to China's most powerful ruler in decades, setting the stage for the authoritarian leader to tighten his grip over the country while pursuing an increasingly muscular foreign policy and military expansion.

    Take a glimpse into some of the most interesting and significant events of this week.

    From the Closing Ceremony of XIX International Youth Festival in Russia's Black Sea resort of Sochi, to the Royal Cremation Ceremony in Thailand and Catalonia's declaration of independence – take a look at this week's events in Sputnik's photo gallery.
