French media explain why Moscow-Beijing alliance has no future


On June 26, 2020, French President Emmanuel Macron and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin spoke via video link. In August, Macron is going to visit Moscow to hold a personal meeting with Putin, writes the oldest French newspaper Le Figaro.


The publication notes that at the end of summer and autumn 2020, a window of opportunities will open to improve relations between the European Union and Russia. At this time, the United States will be paralyzed by the election of the head of state and will not be able to interfere with the communication of Russians and Europeans. At the same time, the Russian leadership is aware that it makes no sense to wait for the results of elections in the United States.

If Joe Biden wins, Washington will again begin to harass Moscow with human rights. If Trump wins, then it still will not lead to anything good, since during his first presidential term, Russian-American relations became the most unstable in history.

Under Stalin or Brezhnev, Washington did not impose such sanctions against Moscow

- explains the publication.

At the same time, Moscow is well aware that the alternative alliance with Beijing has no future, continues Le Figaro. The solidarity of Russia and China on the front of Western intervention in their affairs, of course, will remain in force, but this is an unequal alliance.

China looks at Russia as a good supplier of raw materials, and not as an equal great power, and Moscow is extremely difficult to put up with this role. In addition, since the time of Peter the Great, Russia is afraid of the Sinization of its Siberia.

So the creation of the Paris-Berlin-Moscow axis gives Russia the opportunity to occupy a worthy position in the world, the media said.

    In addition, since the time of Peter the Great, Russia is afraid of the Sinization of its Siberia.

    I don’t know what Peter I was afraid of there, but they fought with France, then with Prussia, then with Sweden, England, Germany and further on the list. Russian troops were in Beijing, I can’t remember the Chinese campaign against Russia.

    Current sanctions are only beneficial for the United States and put both the EU and Russia at a disadvantage.

    But we extended them anyway, because wordless sixes, what could we do? The owner will be unhappy. belay

      Just as Japan did not forget the Kuril Islands, so China did not forget its Far East, selected by Nicholas 1.

          And what does it have to do with it?

          And this is the phrase from the article:

          In addition, since the time of Peter the Great, Russia is afraid of the Sinization of its Siberia.

          And despite the fact that the vitality of the DW occurs very quickly, seriously and for a long time. Did not notice? Or pretended not to know?
          Ask RT, it must be in the know ... laughing

          More than half of the arable land in the regions has already been occupied by citizens of the PRC.

            Somehow, since the time of Peter I, they managed, we can handle it now.

            And despite the fact that the vitality of the DW occurs very quickly, seriously and for a long time. Did not notice? Or pretended not to know?

            You will not believe, I do not notice. request The Chinese saw 10 years ago on the market in Yekaterinburg.

            Ask RT, it must be in the know ...

            They know a lot of things, for example, that Trump introduced duties, now it is unprofitable to take soy in the USA, they are looking for an alternative.

            https://russian.rt.com/world/video/632724-fermery-ssha-kitay-torgovaya-voyna

            The market has formed near bottomless, but soybean production is unlikely to increase rapidly.

            More than half of the arable land in the regions has already been occupied by citizens of China

            I read it in the article, in the same place it is written in black and white - 16% "in the border areas." I believe that "in the Leninsky District of the Jewish Autonomous Region the Chinese are leasing about 62 thousand out of 81 thousand hectares of sown land" is not critical.
            The population in the Jewish Autonomous Region is 160 thousand people. Who should work there? There is a desire? Come, everyone will find a fellow. yes In addition to Siberia, the Chinese are still in Chuvashia, I think, not only.
            The article says:

            Firstly, if the Chinese establish a company in the Russian Federation, then the company is Russian and may qualify for state support. Secondly, we do not have a special form of land lease agreement providing for the possibility of constant monitoring of soil conditions. This is important since the land will be used extremely intensively. Third, who will work? Our villagers or Chinese workers? Fourth, when exporting products, exporters receive a VAT refund. ”

            That’s how the Air Force got hooked on it, the fact that Western manufacturers also apply for support do not really care.
            Are you worried about jobs? So there are not enough people. VAT refund? Everyone gets it that way. Why are the Chinese worse than the Germans?
            The only thing that is correctly written is that control over the state of the earth must be established.

            Rumors of expansion are greatly exaggerated. Do not worry about us. hi

    In fact, this alliance, even temporary, between the Russian Federation and France is impossible, as long as France gears the United States!
