It will cover well beyond Russia and China, as it will be the Eurasian satellite system. Of course, both are global systems tuned heavily to Russian and Chinese requirements and available to any public user anywhere on Earth.

[This column was written for the Unz Review] Europe: My honor is solidarity! “That tells you all you need to know about the difference between modern Britain and the government of Vladimir Putin. They make Novichok, we make light sabers. One a hideous weapon that is specifically intended for assassination. The other an implausible theatrical prop with a mysterious buzz. But which of those two weapons is really more effective

After all, behind the Great Western Firewall, they are all the same thing, right? A recent cover and main article in the
Outside of Eurangloland, these two presidents are the hopes and dreams of a fairer, more just world.

Regular contributor to The Saker, Andrew Korybko, is presenting us with additional correspondence from his recent China trip . He had the opportunity to conduct a prolonged interview with Dr. Pang Zhongying,one of the country’s premier international relations experts, alongside his colleague from TASS, Ksenia Petrova. The following is a transcript of their conversation, with minor grammatical changes made to the text to make it more understandable. This is the first
by Mister Unknown Recently, there has been no shortage of highly pessimistic commentaries published & republished , pointing out the supposed ” follies ” of Russia’s eastern pivot, by highlighting this year’s decline in Sino-Russian trade, China’s stock market volatility, and its supposed economic “weakness”. The conclusion implied by these articles is clear: “Russia’s economic pivot to China is failing, because increased economic cooperation has not mitigated Russia’s recent economic woes,

Dear friends, It is my immense pleasure to present to you today a booklet entitled “Q&A with a Chinese Friend” – a full length discussion of Chinese-Russian relations authored by Mr Unknown and myself. Considering the huge importance of the topic, we have decided to release this document in three languages – English, Russian and Chinese to make it possible for English, Russian and Chinese speakers to easily exchange the
by Mister Unknown When Sino-Russian collaboration is discussed in the media – be it western, Russian, or Chinese – the most-often discussed areas of cooperation are energy (e.g. the big gas deal last year), defense (e.g. Russian arms sales & joint exercises), and more recently, the new Silk Road as part of the Eurasian integration effort. It’s perfectly understandable that these are the focus items in the press, since they’re the “big wins” with big dollar amounts and
by Larchmonter445 China, Russia step up media cooperation with 9 deals inked I noticed this new development. It follows our Double Helix metaphor from the deepening of the China-Russia strategic integration. This time it is based in the use of media globally. As you know RT is spreading into other languages and bases of operation. However, China’s CCTV network is mature and has spanned the globe for over a decade
original source: http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/translation-xi-jinping-remember-history-open-future/ri6665 Translation and forword by Anatolii Karlin Xi Jinping penned an op-ed in a Russian newspaper on May 6th in which, in stark contrast to the typical Western bile and hostility, he acknowledges the role of the Soviet Union in defeating Nazism and warns off against attempts to revise that outcome, be it on paper or in real life. I am translating it in full for two reasons.
This short New China TV video really put me in a good mood :-)
As most of you already know, the Chinese Navy has sent warships into the Black Sea. They are headed for the Russian naval base at Novorossiysk. There have been several reasons given for this trip: As part of the preparations for the visit of Xi Jinping to the May 9th celebrations As part of a possible sale of its frigates by China to Russia As a preparation for joint Russian-Chinese
submitted by “Mister Unknown” of the Hidden Harmonies China Blog As an avid follower and enthusiast of modern trends in Sino-Russian relations (and media coverage thereof), I saw this “jewel” of an op-ed in the New York Times earlier this week, titled “Why China will Reclaim Siberia“. This type of Sinophobic fear-mongering is nothing new in the western media. With amusement, I read through it with the slight hope
Well, now we have it from the most official source possible: Foreign Minister Wang Yi who declared on Monday. “If the Russian side needs it, we will provide necessary assistance within our capacity“. Considering the US rhetoric and imperial mindset which proclaims that “you are either with us or against us” it is pretty clear what such a declaration really means: China is putting the US on notice that in
