Expert: the West is easier to give Russia to China than to make concessions


Moscow’s attempt to play on the contradictions between Washington and Beijing, apparently, is doomed to failure, writes Georgian expert Emil Avdaliani on the pages of The Algemeiner Journal.


It is assumed that as the contradictions between the United States and China escalate, it will be easier for Russia to maneuver between them, achieving at least some geopolitical goals in the immediate vicinity of its borders. For Moscow, this is an opportunity to position itself as a separate pole of geopolitical attraction.

The ultimate goal is for both the United States and China to turn to Russia for support. Time will tell if this strategy will work. The United States is stepping up pressure on allies around the world to give up security cooperation with the Chinese. A well-defined technicaleconomic US-led unit.

At the moment, Russia is getting closer to China, thanks to growing economic and military ties, but Russians fear that the Celestial Empire will challenge Moscow's interests in Central Asia and other regions.

Ideally, Washington would prefer that Moscow draw closer to the United States, instead of turning toward China. Perhaps, the author suggests, serious efforts will be made to save relations with the Kremlin. The problem will be how many concessions the US and the EU are prepared to make. The subject of bargaining will be, first of all, Ukraine, as well as Moldova and Georgia. Russia may be offered some concessions, but it is unlikely that the collective West will abandon its many years of economic and military positions in the post-Soviet space.

A similar situation is in the Middle East, which no one is going to give away just like that. This leads to another scenario in which the West does not try to get closer to Russia, but leaves it in China’s orbit.

Many believe that the collective West will not be able to compare with the combined resources of Russia and China. This is not entirely true. In the end, the United States managed to deter the Soviets and the Chinese when they were allies in the 1950s and early 1960s, and controlled most of Eurasia

- the Georgian expert notes.

This experience can serve as the basis “for a new confrontation with undemocratic powers,” Avdaliani claims. Here, the Kremlin’s hopes may prove futile if the United States begins to consider Russia and China as a single enemy camp.

    To compare the share of the USA in world GDP from the late 1950s to now, the Georgian "expert" has not guessed? If we compare resources.

    Expert: the West is easier to give Russia to China than to make concessions

    - No matter what this "expert" is trying to do; but the very fact and the very phrase that Russia can allegedly be given ... given to China no longer hurts the ear and has become completely acceptable in principle ... - And it does not look absurd, and it can be discussed, and something can be denied, and proven ... - To prove that ... - "No, Russia will not be given away ... - it is not profitable for them" ... - Hahah ...
    - This is what they have survived ... - what is called - Russia has survived ... - Already many in the world believe that Russia is becoming just an appendage of China ... - and that Russia should be "given" to China; or you can "not give away" ... - And the position of Russia itself in this in everything is simply secondary ...

      Gee. While open spaces Bolshoi Theater The world media plow the topics of free manipulation of the American electoral system by Russia, the opinion of a "Georgian" who does not distinguish an Ajarian from an Abkhazian is very impressive in the scale of the analysis ... More precisely, schizophrenic attacks.

    The Georgian mind, as well as the Georgian fighting spirit, is just enough to divide the two into donkeys.

    So Russia has survived, now only at the dancers. And about the Georgian expert, it is very reminiscent of British scientists - the role of the moon on the behavior of a drunk after drinking.
