Media talked about the secret pact of Russia and China against the backdrop of a pandemic


At present, many say that China has become a source of the spread of coronavirus. Eight countries demand cash compensation from the PRC, including the UK, USA, Egypt, Germany, India, Italy. However, Russia is in no hurry to accuse its eastern neighbor of a pandemic. The correspondent of the Japanese publication Foresight writes about the reasons for Moscow’s loyalty to Beijing.


It is not profitable for Russia to aggravate relations with China, because economy Russian Far East depends on economic relations, in particular, with China.

In turn, against the backdrop of a confrontation with the United States, China needs a faithful ally whom Russia can act, so Beijing is extremely interested in strengthening friendly relations with Moscow. From February to March this year, China's trade with the outside world decreased by 8% compared to the same period in 2019. However, trade with Russia, on the contrary, showed an increase of 3%.

In March, Beijing increased its purchases of Russian oil by 31% compared with March last year. Last month, both countries began to study the possibility of building a second gas pipeline from Eastern Siberia to the PRC. On April 16, in a telephone conversation, Putin and Xi Jinping agreed to further increase trade.

It is possible that the parties entered into a pact - an agreement that implies Moscow’s support for China's innocence in a pandemic in exchange for expanding trade relations

- notes Foresight.

Thus, China can take under its wing a weak Russian economy, giving Moscow preference in choosing suppliers of certain resources.

    It is not profitable for Russia to aggravate relations with China, because the economy of the Russian Far East depends on economic ties, in particular, with China.

    - Yes, right now Russia should ask China very harshly about the whole policy that it is openly pursuing against Russia, supporting all the sanctions that the United States has imposed against Russia ... - And openly present to China those demands that reflect huge losses, which the Russian economy has undergone (and continues to endure); from the actions of China, expressed in support of American sanctions against Russia for the entire recent period of time and to this day ...

    In March, Beijing increased its purchases of Russian oil by 31% compared with March last year.

    - And at what price did Russia supply China with these

    increased deliveries of Russian oil by 31% compared to March last year

    ??????? - At what price did Russia supply its oil to China ???

    Thus, China can take under its wing a weak Russian economy, giving Moscow preference in choosing suppliers of certain resources.

    - This is not a wing, but a Chinese loop ... on the weak neck of Russia ...

    Oh, the new Pact ... Putin will be called - Xi Jinping. Abbreviated pusi.
    And after forty years, survivors will be explained that he became the cause of the Third World War.

    I won’t be surprised if tomorrow in the States they say that Russia and China have concluded a pact on the division of America! (Presumably: - Russia - Alaska, China - California).

      You did not read the samizdat O. Tonina "Expropriation of the expropriators." Very relevant, albeit a political pamphlet, and written a long time ago.

      Union of Germany, Russia and China. Tigris tanks and a million Chinese paratroopers :-)
      Recommend. You will smile.

    I am absolutely convinced that Russia and China, in economic and military terms, are self-sufficient and able to survive without investments from other countries.
