Chinese media explained why they consider Russians to be warlike people

Chinese media continue to scare the planet with Russia. Last time they сообщилиthat Russia, with its “vast nuclear reserves”, can at least “ten times” destroy US territory. This time, the Chinese "comrades" delved into the "Russian militancy" and their history.

It should be noted that the private Chinese newspaper Sohu (Sohu) regularly tries to drive a wedge into the already difficult relationship between Moscow and the West, which some Russians perceive as advertising the power of Russia. Moreover, the publication itself belongs to the Chinese Inc., which passed the Nasdaq listing in the United States in 2000 and is one of the leading media in the “Middle State” (“Middle Empire”), as China calls itself, and at the same time as the search engine and the largest information brand in the internet space of this country.

So, in the next article of the publication it is said that Russians are the most “warlike people", and Russia is the country that has captured the most land in history. After that, the Chinese delve into the history of the Russian state and report that from the period of tsarist Russia until the collapse of the USSR, the country's territory reached 25 million square meters. km At the same time, according to the publication, for some reason the harsh climate helped the Russians “collect” the territories.

It should be noted that the Chinese "comrades" are mistaken, since everything is relatively normal in the vast expanses of Central Asia, the Caucasus region and the European part of the continent. And although the Germans, during the Great Patriotic War (WWII), really blamed the harsh climate for everything, but the Swedes did not come to us from Africa.

In 1707, the Swedes were completely defeated due to the frosts of the “Russian winter”. In 1812, Napoleon’s campaign in Russia turned into a rout because of the winter cold, just as the well-known German plan of “blitzkrieg” failed during World War II

- says an article in the newspaper Sohu.

According to the author, because of the large territory of the USSR and the huge front line, the plan of the "lightning war" of the Germans lost its advantages. And while the German soldiers tried to adapt to the "unexpected" cold during the attack on Moscow, "the Russian army launched a counterattack." Then it reminded readers that during the Qing Dynasty, the Chinese contemptuously called the Russians “hairy.”

The article explains that the Chinese then nicknamed the Russians “hairy,” mainly because Russia captured many territories of China. Now the Russians in China, for the most part, are called the "warlike people." Moreover, Russians, most often, according to the author of the article, called the Chinese “Khitan” or “China”.

The material also states that the first country on the territory of present-day Russia was Kievan Rus, "but it was wiped off the face of the earth during the Western campaign of the Mongol Khan Batu." The state of the Golden Horde was created on the occupied territory, which even exerted its influence on the Chinese dynasty (empire) of Liao, which was later also captured. At the same time, Russia never learned to distinguish the Chinese from the Mongols.

    Oh, those cunning "Chinese comrades" from Sohu with their provocative fabrications! request
    Not only the "Swedish comrades" who came from the north were not defeated by the "Russian winter". But the "blitzkrieg" of Hitler's "Common Europe" barked back in the summer of 1941, and it was not "General Frost" that interfered!
    "Sketch" (under the guise of a sort of "boasting") about the "Chinese territories" seized by Russian "hairworms" and the very transparent desire of the Chinese newspaper (and those behind it) to present Russia and the Russians as a kind of "global evil", which all "common people "one should be afraid - this is by no means a" friendly action "(of the so-called" Chinese comrades "), but quite the opposite!

    Do not meddle with us, that’s the whole story. For that matter, based on the logic of Soho, we are the successors of the Golden Horde. With all the consequences for the conquerors of any profile and nationality.

    It would be nice for the Chinese to learn a story.
    What is meant by

    In 1707, the Swedes were completely defeated due to the frosts of the “Russian winter”.

    In 1707 nothing remarkable happened in the Northern War. Karl was preparing for the campaign, which ended in Poltava in 1709. Did they mix up the year of the Battle of Poltava? But it took place in July. Where are the frosts?
    Sohu becomes a collection of illiterate fakes.
    Well, I'm already tired of poking such "historians" into the fact that the Russians fought both Napoleon and Hitler in the same climate as they did with the Russians.
    And it would be nice if someone periodically showed the Chinese the maps of the end of the 18th century, where their northern border is the so-called Wall of China (which faces just south with its combat side).

    They call the fighting nation the Russians. I have heard this for a long time.

    In general, from this review it is clear that the authors of SOHU do not know anything about the history of Russia. An article is a set of false cliches, on the basis of which absolutely wrong conclusions are drawn. Storytellers.
