First things first, this is a very long statement (5300 words). It is also an extremely important one since it deals primarily with grand strategy issues (it discusses the “whats” not the “hows”). To put it succinctly, this is a common vision of the future shared between Russia and China. It is therefore also a common goal setting document. Considering its scope and objective, this is most definitely a crucial historical document.
Next, it is really important to understand who the target audience of this statement is. By definition, the target audience of such a document is the entire planet, but by its language I would argue that it is pretty clear that this is not a document addressed to anybody in the West (for one thing, it is too long for the average western reader and it is too long to be reprinted or read in full in the general press). There is a saying which all Russians know: “the East is a delicate/refined matter” (it comes from a famous Soviet movie). The style and contents of this joint statement shows that it is primarily aimed at the Russian and Chinese public, especially those in position of power: to a typical western reader the text itself looks long-winded and full of well-meaning platitudes. The Russians and the Chinese understand each other much better, and not only can they read between the lines and they can evaluate what is said and what is only suggested. The fact that some things are only alluded to does in no way make them less crucial. Again, the audience here is most definitely not a western one.
Having said all that, I want to pick, roughly in order, some key parts of that speech and try to unpack what this joint statement really says. This is a somewhat arbitrary selection, in reality, word letter and comma matter here, but for the sake of brevity, I won’t comment on the full text. I do, however, recommend that you take the time and read it here: http://thesaker.is/joint-statement-of-the-russian-federation-and-the-peoples-republic-of-china-on-the-international-relations-entering-a-new-era-and-the-global-sustainable-development/
Key excerpts from the RU-CH Joint Statement: (emphasis added)
Some actors representing but the minority on the international scale continue to advocate unilateral approaches to addressing international issues and resort to force; they interfere in the internal affairs of other states, infringing their legitimate rights and interests, and incite contradictions, differences, and confrontation, thus hampering the development and progress of mankind, against the opposition from the international community.
Translation into plain English: the USA and a few of its vassal states want to maintain a world hegemony and ignore international law. This is a threat to the peace and security of our entire planet. We oppose this.
There is no one-size-fits-all template to guide countries in establishing democracy. A nation can choose such forms and methods of implementing democracy that would best suit its particular state, based on its social and political system, its historical background, traditions, and unique cultural characteristics. It is only up to the people of the country to decide whether their State is a democratic one.
Translation into plain English: there is no one way to establish real people power, and outsiders are, by definition, disqualified from judging the degree of “democracy” of any nation. Each nation has the right to decide how it wants to live, how it wants to formally structure its people power and only the people of that nation can decide whether their country’s organization faithfully expresses and upholds their national values. Outsiders cannot think of themselves as “teachers of democracy”.
The sides reaffirm their focus on building the Greater Eurasian Partnership in parallel and in coordination with the Belt and Road construction to foster the development of regional associations as well as bilateral and multilateral integration processes for the benefit of the peoples on the Eurasian continent. The sides agreed to continue consistently intensifying practical cooperation for the sustainable development of the Arctic.
Translation into plain English: we, the locals, are (and have been) building a Eurasian community which will encompass the entire Eurasian landmass and its adjacent Arctic waters. This Eurasian landmass will be sovereignly ruled by those nations who compose it.
The sides are gravely concerned about serious international security challenges and believe that the fates of all nations are interconnected. No State can or should ensure its own security separately from the security of the rest of the world and at the expense of the security of other States.
Translation into plain English: security is always and by definition collective. There cannot be security for some at the expense of the security of others. The AngloZionist Empire’s notion of unilateral security is basically putting a gun to the head of each nation on the planet with the very explicit threat to pull the trigger if that nation dares to resist this typical act of imperialist aggression.
The sides reaffirm their strong mutual support for the protection of their core interests, state sovereignty and territorial integrity, and oppose interference by external forces in their internal affairs.
Translation into plain English: we are, and will, be standing side by side and we will jointly defeat those forces who are trying to prevent us from achieving and maintaining true, full, sovereignty.
The Russian side reaffirms its support for the One-China principle, confirms that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China, and opposes any forms of independence of Taiwan.
Translation into plain English: Russia will support the Chinese efforts to reintegrate Taiwan. Russia has got China’s back.
Russia and China stand against attempts by external forces to undermine security and stability in their common adjacent regions, intend to counter interference by outside forces in the internal affairs of sovereign countries under any pretext, oppose color revolutions, and will increase cooperation in the aforementioned areas.
Translation into plain English: China will support Russia in her efforts to prevent the USA/NATO/EU to turn the Ukraine into an anti-Russia or to overthrow governments friendly to Russia. China has got Russia’s back.
The sides believe that certain States, military and political alliances, and coalitions seek to obtain, directly or indirectly, unilateral military advantages to the detriment of the security of others, including by employing unfair competition practices, intensify geopolitical rivalry, fuel antagonism and confrontation, and seriously undermine the international security order and global strategic stability. The sides oppose further enlargement of NATO and call on the North Atlantic Alliance to abandon its ideologized cold war approaches, to respect the sovereignty, security and interests of other countries, the diversity of their civilizational, cultural and historical backgrounds, and to exercise a fair and objective attitude towards the peaceful development of other States.
Translation into plain English: the West is trying to destabilize, subvert, control and destroy any country which is not willing to become a US vassal state. NATO is an aggressive, violent and totalitarian superstructure whose aim is to prevent any country from achieving sovereignty. It is just the latest iteration of Anglo imperialism. Its ideology is based on hate and projection of its own hateful worldview and ethos unto others. Its nature is imperialist and its motto divide et impera. We will oppose that geostrategic malignant tumor together.
The sides are seriously concerned about the trilateral security partnership between Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom (AUKUS), which provides for deeper cooperation between its members in areas involving strategic stability, in particular their decision to initiate cooperation in the field of nuclear-powered submarines. Russia and China believe that such actions are contrary to the objectives of security and sustainable development of the Asia-Pacific region, increase the danger of an arms race in the region, and pose serious risks of nuclear proliferation.
Translation into plain English: AUKUS is yet a further iteration of Anglo imperialism. It is dangerous and we will oppose it together.
The sides call on the United States to respond positively to the Russian initiative and abandon its plans to deploy intermediate-range and shorter-range ground-based missiles in the Asia-Pacific region and Europe. The Chinese side is sympathetic to and supports the proposals put forward by the Russian Federation to create long-term legally binding security guarantees in Europe.
Translation into plain English: China fully backs the Russian ultimatum to the West. The West’s rejection of the Russian demands also affects to Asia-Pacific region and, therefore, it affects and even threatens China’s national interests. Russia and China have a common goal to resist the West’s imperialistic policies.
The sides note that the denunciation by the United States of a number of important international arms control agreements has an extremely negative impact on international and regional security and stability. The sides express concern over the advancement of U.S. plans to develop global missile defense and deploy its elements in various regions of the world, combined with capacity building of high-precision non-nuclear weapons for disarming strikes and other strategic objectives.
Translation into plain English: Russia will not allow the US to militarily encircle China and China will not allow the US to militarily encircle Russia. Russia and China stand back to back and will protect each other, thereby foiling any Anglo plans to encircle either one, or both, of these nations.
The sides oppose attempts by some States to turn outer space into an arena of armed confrontation and reiterate their intention to make all necessary efforts to prevent the weaponization of space and an arms race in outer space. They will counteract activities aimed at achieving military superiority in space and using it for combat operations.
Translation into plain English: Russian and Chinese space programs will make a joint effort to defeat the Anglo attempts at militarizing space, both countries will help each other to develop future space capabilities and to create and deploy the means to prevent the US from threatening them from space.
The sides emphasize that domestic and foreign bioweapons activities by the United States and its allies raise serious concerns and questions for the international community regarding their compliance with the BWC. The sides share the view that such activities pose a serious threat to the national security of the Russian Federation and China and are detrimental to the security of the respective regions.
Translation into plain English: the USA clearly has an active biowarfare program. Russia and China feel threatened by this and they will act together to stop the USA from developing illegal and dangerous bioweapons.
The Russian side notes the significance of the concept of constructing a ”community of common destiny for mankind“ proposed by the Chinese side to ensure greater solidarity of the international community and consolidation of efforts in responding to common challenges. The Chinese side notes the significance of the efforts taken by the Russian side to establish a just multipolar system of international relations.
Translation into plain English: Russia and China agree that the new, post Western, world order they want to achieve will be based on the brotherhood and solidarity of all those countries who, rather than exploiting the entire planet for the benefit of a few, want to see an international systems based on shared values rather than on greed and the oppression of the weak by the strong. In that system, relations between countries will be based on international law and the United Nations as its cornerstone and not by some ad hoc “alliances of the willing” or any other such illegal nonsense.
They reaffirm that the new inter-State relations between Russia and China are superior to political and military alliances of the Cold War era. Friendship between the two States has no limits, there are no ”forbidden“ areas of cooperation, strengthening of bilateral strategic cooperation is neither aimed against third countries nor affected by the changing international environment and circumstantial changes in third countries.
Translation into plain English: “relations between Russia and China are superior to political and military alliances of the Cold War era” is pretty darn clear: Russia and China are more than allies or “just” symbionts, the alliance they have formed is not a western-style piece of paper which can be revoked or ignored. Russia and China have decided to establish a true “friendship which knows no limits“, that is a brotherhood that is much bigger in scope and much deeper in nature than any formal alliance. The two countries see a common future and will stand by each other as two loving brothers. Note: the choice of words “friendship with no limits” has been carefully crafted to not make sense to a western audience which will see it only as “pious and vague platitudes with no binding obligations” but which will be very clear to those who come from the Russian and Chinese civilizational realms. Simply put: nobody in the West truly believes in “friendship” between states, only situational allies and personal interests. The concept of friendship has a very different meaning in China and Russia. Furthermore, “no limits” is also nonsensical in western geopolitics. Again, to a Russian or Chinese audience the paragraph above means and expresses much MORE than any “alliance”, “treaty” or “agreement”. Western political leaders simply cannot fathom or imagine what Russia and China are saying here – their minds simply cannot comprehend what is being said here.
Russia and China aim to comprehensively strengthen the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and further enhance its role in shaping a polycentric world order based on the universally recognized principles of international law, multilateralism, equal, joint, indivisible, comprehensive and sustainable security. They consider it important to consistently implement the agreements on improved mechanisms to counter challenges and threats to the security of SCO member states and, in the context of addressing this task, advocate expanded functionality of the SCO Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure.
Translation into plain English: China and Russia will develop their full-spectrum security cooperation. Just as the CSTO recently, the SCO will soon grow more powerful “teeth” and bare them if/when needed. And don’t be fooled by the reference to “anti-terrorism” choice of worlds. The recent CSTO operation in Kazakhstan was also an “anti-terrorist” one :-)
The release of this joint statement is the geostrategic equivalent of Putin’s famous speech in which he described the new Russian weapons systems: it will initially be dismissed by western politicians who will then slowly undergo the five Kübler-Ross stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance). This “limitless friendship” working towards a “community of common destiny for mankind” is the absolute worst nightmare of western imperialism and it is only made worse by the fact that there is absolutely nothing which the West can do to foil, oppose or even slow the progress of Russia and China towards their common goal and future.
Far from “attacking” the West or from invading anybody, Russia and China have been doing something for years already, and now what that “something” is – is quite clear (at least to those with the sobriety and intelligence to see it): Russia and China are simply leaving the united West behind, letting it do its own thing (political, cultural, economic, military and even spiritual suicide) while they build an alternative.
You could say that Zone B does not want to destroy or bring down Zone A. Zone B want to offer an alternative to Zone A and then let each nation decide for itself what zone it wants to live in.
There is one word which is missing from this statement. That word is “Iran“.
It is not missing because China or Russia don’t care about Iran or don’t realize how important Iran will be for the future of the Middle-East and even our entire planet. They know that very, very well. The reason the word “Iran” is missing is simple: while Iran is most definitely a friend and ally of both Russia and China, Iran does not share a “limitless friendship” or brotherly symbiotic relationship with either country. Neither is Iran a full member of the SCO, yet (but will be soon). Talk about true diversity! These countries have completely different cultures, histories and political systems, yet they fully support each other. That is the “there is no one-size-fits-all template” model already being built before our eyes! I also believe that Iran’s bid to become a full member of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation was approved but in needs to be formalized. Yet both China and Russia understand that Iran is crucial, not only as a gateway for Russia and China into the Middle-East, but also as a crucial member of the supra-ideological system of alliances Russia and China want to create. In fact, these countries have been helping each other for years already. But there is more, look at this:
- Russia is a democratic and “social” state, with a weird, and changing, mix of capitalism and traditional Russian collectivism.
- China is a unique mix of capitalism and Communist state control
- Iran is an Islamic Republic.
Talk about true diversity! These countries have completely different cultures, histories and political systems, yet they fully support each other.
This model will attract and easily include those Latin American countries which will choose “21 century socialism” (primarily developed by Cuba, Venezuela and Bolivia) ideology. It will also be far more attractive to many African countries than the “western imperialist boot” (examples include Mali, Burkina Faso, Congo and, potentially many others).
The map below shows the current situation.
The Russian-Chinese joint statement tells us all we need to know about how this map will change in the near future.
This friendship between Russia and China is the best thing ever happened. The last comparison between maps really hits hard. It’s a shame that my country is currently under US occupation, especially so because this is Asia, not the Western territory.
This degenerate, evil Anglo-Zionist world order should come to an end. Imperialism, spititual depravation, materialism, “democracy”, feminism, multiculturalism, a weird combination of moral relativism(“morality is subjective”) and imperial unilateralism(“anyone who opposes to the US is evil and should be executed”).. It’s all so tiresome. Fortunately it seems that they’re going to collapse soon by themselves, while Zone B moves forward. After the inevitable collapse of the US, people here may wake up from this delusional US-imposed worldview and slowly rebuild our destroyed nation, or at least that’s my hope.
Thanks for great analysis!
A seu tempo, o conjunto de países intitulados “ocidente” vão acabar por aderir a esta nova dinâmica, porque ela vai ter uma força gravitacional irresistível.
Força gravitacional essa que não vai ser apenas económica, mas também cultural;
E não vai ser apenas económica e cultural, mas também uma verdadeira proposta política que, oferecendo um fascinante modelo de “concerto de soberanias”, garantido por aquilo que se antevê como uma “interdependência de cooperações”, pode vir a tornar-se uma versão muitíssimo aperfeiçoada da ordem internacional westphaliana.
Talvez aquilo por que o movimento dos “não-alinhados” do pós segunda guerra sonhava.
Porém, antes que o “ocidente” adira, vai ter que percorrer a sua “via sacra”, para recuperar as suas raízes civilizacionais (sem as quais não será nada), e revigorar a sua força moral e espiritual. Isso leva tempo e, infelizmente, acarreta uma grande dose de sofrimento.
Seremos, pois, os últimos a chegar, mas acredito que cheguemos.
In time, the set of countries entitled “West” will eventually adhere to this new dynamic, because it will have an irresistible gravitational force. Gravitational force that will not only be economic, but also cultural; And it will not only be economic and cultural, but also a true political proposal that, offering a fascinating model of “concert of sovereignties”, guaranteed by what is anticipated as an “interdependence of cooperation”, may become a very perfected version of the Westphalian international order. Perhaps what the “non-aligned” movement of the post-world war dreamed of. However, before the “West” joins, it will have to go through its “sacred way”, to recover its civilizational roots (without which it will be nothing), and to reinvigorate its moral and spiritual strength. This takes time and unfortunately carries a great deal of suffering. We will therefore be the last to arrive, but I believe we will.
While I enjoy your analysis, it cannot be ignored that China may be playing a “friend” to Russia for the time being, but, their vision of the future, of course, entails the removal of Russia entirely at some point. Russia to China is a land full of resources to be taken and to habituate their enormous population. I am sure the Russian leaders recognize this and I hope they have some sort of a plan. China has already started to encroach by taking bits and pieces of Russian territory. That is just the beginning.
It is amazing how this narative “China will eventualy attack Russia” got traction after Xi gave finger to Nuland and Blinken.
Expect explosion of fake news on that lines after Joint Statement. If you tend to believe that something that MIGHT happen after 30 or 100 years, will happen in close future, go offline and drink a glass of cold water. Cudos, You’ve been succesfuly indoctrinated.
They don’t need to attack. Their strategy is a “cut by a thousand tears”. They will make Russia’s economy dependent on them. Same as they have done everywhere else. At the same time, they will help “finance’ Russia’s projects and he who controls the debt has all the control. Russia is selling a lot of coal and gas to China for very little profit. China is already taking some of Russia’s land in Siberia. Chinese have been doing logging in Siberia. It is the world’s largest forest. China has no friends, they only see “One China”. Do your research.
Russia is not exactly an innocent lamb when it comes to geopolitics—or in its strategy towards China.
Russia made its own Pivot to Asia and China after its attempts to “gain a seat at the table” of the Western Imperialist club were rejected in the post-Cold War era. In particular, the imposition of Western sanctions as a result of the Ukraine conflict in 2014 motivated Russia to “befriend” China out of economic self-interest.
Moreover, the neo-Eurasianist movement in Russia (as personified by people like Alexander Dugin) is gaining political influence there and is a clear and present threat to China.
As the former RT.com contributor Dan Glazebrook writes:
What Dugin calls ‘Neo-Eurasianism’, meanwhile, builds on US fascist Francis Parker Yockey’s advocacy of a grand coalition against ‘Atlanticism’ and US power. Again, this is at first sight appealing to genuine anti-imperialists; after all, what could be more anti-imperialist than a policy to isolate and weaken the world’s leading imperial power? On closer inspection, however, Dugin’s Eurasianism amounts to a crude attempt to form a Russian-led white power bloc aimed at destroying China and preparing for grand inter-imperialist world war. Dugin’s Manichean and occultist view of world history posits an eternal struggle between a degenerate ‘sea empire’, a ‘Leviathan’ represented today by the Atlanticism of the US and UK in particular, and a Russian-led ‘land empire’ – a ‘Behemoth’ upholding traditional Slavic and European culture, and defending it against the Muslim and Chinese hordes unleashed by Atlanticist globalisation. Dugin’s “Foundations of Geopolitics”, whilst advocating a propagandistic focus on the USA (“the main ‘scapegoat’ will be precisely the U.S.”, as he succinctly puts it), sees the real enemy as China, which, he writes, “must, to the maximum degree possible, be dismantled”. Thus, despite its apparent hostility to the US, Duginism’s immediate goal is in fact precisely the same as that of US imperialism – the destruction of China.
In fact, this version of “neo-Eurasianism” itself is essentially a Russian repackaging of more, shall we say, sinister projects of the past:
Dugin’s project, however, as Edmund Griffiths has pointed out, is essentially the reconstitution of the territories of the Third Reich (including the parts of Russia it never conquered) under joint German-Russian tutelage (the ‘Moscow-Berlin axis’ as he terms it). In this, he is close to his mentor Thiriart’s conception of a ‘white-power bloc’ from Lisbon to Vladivostock (and excluding all of Southwest and Southeast Asia). The real inspiration Dugin appears to have gained from classic Eurasianism was its strategy of the infiltration and colonisation of the left rather than direct confrontation with it.
Like Hitler, Dugin’s model for his future ‘Eurasian empire’ appears to be the British empire. Following the First War of Indian Independence of 1857 – the largest anti-colonial uprising of the nineteenth century, which took the British three years to quell – Britain began to focus more on cultivating ‘traditional’ (and preferably sectarian) leaders for the outsourcing of some of empire’s dirty business, with the ruling families of much of today’s Arab peninsula a still-existing product of this period. In the same fashion, Dugin’s vision for ‘Eurasia’ appears to be a vast collection of cultural-nationalist bantustans controlled by Russian-anointed gangsters (or representatives of the traditional, patriarchal natural hierarchy, to use Dugin’s own formulations) under overall Russian control.
Finally, Russia’s neo-Eurasianism has much in common with its supposed Atlanticist enemy, as Glazebrook explains:
Where ‘Neo-Eurasianism’ really reveals its compatibility with its supposed Atlantic enemy, however, is in its attitude to China. The dismemberment of China – identified in “Foundations of Geopolitics” as Russia’s chief regional rival – should begin, Dugin suggests, with the Russian annexation of Tibet, Xinjiang and Manchuria (as well as Mongolia) as a “security belt”…. In the sense Dugin’s geopolitics is little different from those of Kissinger, Brzezinski, Clinton or Trump: the sowing of division between Russia and China. The only difference is which of the two they flatter and which they attack at any particular moment.
While I am *not* saying that Vladimir Putin or the Russian government in the main upholds this version of neo-Eurasianism per se, there are influential political factions in Russia that do.
And maybe it’s actually China that needs to be on guard about uncritically embracing Russia in a strategic partnership.
China needs to be on guard?!
Russia, as a whole, has GDP less than state of New York. Dwindling population, at least half of which has been living under poverty for generations. While they project and “market” military might but it is no match to China in any way. Where exactly does China have a disadvantage?
This kind of GDP comparison is meaningless. For large economies, it is better to use PPP to compare GDP. In PPP, Russia GDP is about the same size of Germany, ranking about 5 or 6th in the World.
This is the way the West tries to drive a wedge between China and Russia.
The Chinese population is already in sharp decline. The Northeast economy has been worsening for a decade. There has been many plans to try to revive the Northeast without any success (measured by population outflow).
If China can buy the resources in Siberia, why bother to occupy it?
It is the talents that China is going after. Huawei acquired a face-recognition company two years ago. And there are now many cooperating projects, such as the moon base station, passenger plane, energy etc. Russia is in an awkward position, if it does not work with China, their loss of talents to the West may be more.
I’m not sure how much I can say regarding the part of bioweapons here on this blog. I’ll just say the US and friends may have already used it and both China and Russia have evidence of it. If this is correct, I hope one day those bastards will face a public international trial.
My personal comments:
-The joint statement is many, many years late. For many betrayed peoples and nations.
-Meantime China lost nothing, Russia lost A LOT. By the loss of Ukraine, I dare to say, Russia lost itself.
-If Russia had built the “Greater Eurasian Partnership” with its willing partners instead of throwing them under the bus in order to build the partnership with the West it would have gone a long way.
-Collective security is a phrase currently overused by Russia. It has become popular only after the Russian fur had become popular for hunting. How about the security and the fur of the Serbian, Libyan, N. Korean, Cuban and many other peoples? Why Russia has trampled upon the rights of the Serbian people? Why it supported our common anti-orthodox enemies?
-So called trilateral security partnership between Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom (AUKUS), are strictly based on the civilizational values like language, common understanding, cultural heritage, religion etc. Birds of feather flock together! Where has Russia been lately flocking together the birds of feather?
– “The sides call on the United States to respond positively to the Russian initiative and abandon its plans to deploy intermediate-range and shorter-range ground-based missiles in the Asia-Pacific region”. So again, its all about Russia, Russia and more Russia. And China. How about those that Russia selfishly had left behind?
-Like Saker, I live in the West. There will be no “post-west” at all, as implied by the Saker. I see a certain downside too, albeit, still very powerful continuation of the same old playing out. Those that were able to make an empire that lasted for a few centuries, where the sun never sets, they are not likely to descend in to nothingness just like that. Certainly not as imagined by Saker and some others. If they were such, they would have never been what they had been. The wishful thinking does not qualify for the continuing historical trends.
-I understand that, out of the historical necessity, both nations (Russia and China) pledge so much (verbally) to invest in their common future relations and well being. However, the past has not been addressed at all. Usually the bordering countries, as opposed to those that are far from each other, tend to have many unresolved issues. It’s the common knowledge that Putin had rejecting more than once the rapprochement with China. Just like Gorbachev and Yeltsin, at one point, he had put all his eggs in the same basket? Will the ancient Chinese ever be forgetful of the wayward hypocrites?
It is not late. And if, then not by much.
This is effectively an open declaration of an alliance in an open a “war” against the “Western” world order.
Only fools declare war when they are not ready for it. Check the Chinese Navy just 2 years ago. They were simply not ready then and are only barely ready today. The move is forced. They would likely delay it if not for the last few years of non-kinetic hostilities by the US.
Besides, two years ago there was Trump who, for all his failings, was a businessman and not a warlord. Then Covid came which, for all intents and purposes, was a global training for Biological warfare.
These things do not pop up in isolation. So this alliance must have been agreed way back, my guess mid-2020. The Olympics chosen as the proper time to announce it.
Not late. On time. From the RU or CN perspective that is.
For many small countries who could not use the upcomming conflict to shield them. Well, tough.
Independent powers may support you at times, but they will never support you against their own interests. Such is life.
“It is not late. And if, then not by much. “
“So this alliance must have been agreed way back, my guess mid-2020. “
Thank you for your illustration/projection of the opponents’ relations to time.
Sign in Putin’s office “Do not scare American ostriches – oak parquet !”
Let me remind you that from January 1, 2022, Russia began fulfilling a contract for the supply of ground-based S-400 Triumf anti-aircraft missile systems to India.
The first regimental set of S-400 Triumph air defense systems in India will be put into operation in April – deployment in the state of Punjab on the western border with Pakistan.
And the remaining 4 (four) – until 2023.
The cost of 5 (five) regimental kits is $5.43 billion.
Russia and India signed an agreement on the supply of S-400
“Triumph” in October 2018, during Putin’s visit.
China today is just the name of a variation of americanism. That is, unconditional meaninglessness, the spreading of a dishumanizing mechanization over everything, communization (that means nihilism in it`s last metaphysical form). And so it is foolish to believe China can overcome the west. China is more honest than America, in many ways, but it is also doomed . Russia is a name for the counter movement in planetary level of german idealist metaphysics and it`s double rooting on judaism (religion) and platonism (philosophy) which now governs the whole globe, albeit in a very distorted form –with the provisory name of ~power~, –it governs even and especially China, which was drawn to modernity by the japanese invasion of Manchuria, the adoption of communist thought (whatever chinese popular ~philosophy~ contributions are accounted, they are just aids for the understanding of the masses of what is essentially a western form of thought )and can not, and will not, free itself from the ~west~(meaning german idealist philosophy, platonism in general and jewish religion which feeds both with it`s unconditional faith). China`s ~official~ statements say enough about it. It talks about the ~hipocrisy~ of the west, but in an obviously hipocritical fashion, since China itself is completely involved in the absolutely unavoidable self-anihilation of power.
Inter-fleet exercises of the Russian Navy.
Mediterranean Sea, today: 11 surface ships, _ submarines and …
02/08/2022. The ships of the Northern Fleet – the missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov, the frigate Admiral Kasatonov and the large anti-submarine ship Vice-Admiral Kulakov – passed the Strait of Gibraltar and entered the Mediterranean Sea.
02/07/2022. A detachment of ships of the Pacific Fleet, led by the Guards Order of Nakhimov, the Varyag missile cruiser, having passed the Suez Canal, entered the Mediterranean Sea.
The detachment, in addition to the cruiser Varyag, includes the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Tributs and the large sea tanker Boris Butoma.
02/04/2022. A detachment of the Northern and Baltic Fleets, consisting of six large landing ships (BDK), arrived at the logistics support point (PMTO) of the Russian Navy in the Syrian port of Tartus.
The detachment includes three large landing ships of the Northern Fleet: Olenegorsky miner, George the Pobedonosets and Pyotr Morgunov. And three ships of the Baltic Fleet: “Korolev”, “Minsk” and “Kaliningrad”.
On January 25, the Ministry of Defense reported that a detachment of the Varyag cruiser had conducted exercises with Chinese ships in the western part of the Arabian Sea. Prior to that, in the Arabian Sea, the Varyag and the Admiral Tributs took part in the Russian-Indian naval exercises PASSEX and the Russian-Iranian-Chinese exercises CHIRU-2022.
On January 20, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced the start of a series of naval exercises involving more than 140 ships and vessels, more than 60 aircraft, 1,000 pieces of military equipment and about 10,000 military personnel.
In accordance with the training plan for the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation for 2022, a series of naval exercises continues in February in all areas of responsibility of the Navy under the general supervision of the Commander-in-Chief of the Fleet, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov. The main purpose of the maneuvers is to work out the actions of the Navy and the Aerospace Forces to protect Russia’s national interests in the World Ocean, as well as to counter military threats from the sea and ocean directions.
Today, separate naval exercises are taking place in the waters of the Mediterranean, North and Okhotsk Seas, in the northeastern part of the Atlantic Ocean and in the Pacific Ocean.
