EurAsian Times: India stands up for Russian Vladivostok in front of China

The claims of the Chinese patriotic public to the Russian port city of Vladivostok are reported by the international portal EurAsian Times. In the Middle Kingdom, they suddenly “remembered” that the settlement was once supposedly called “Hayshenwei” and belonged to the Middle Empire. Such a violent reaction of the neighbors made itself felt after the Russian embassy in the PRC published an innocuous article about the 160th anniversary of the capital of Primorsky Krai.

Chinese diplomats, journalists and nationalists went online to claim their claim on the Russian city of Vladivostok, which was previously part of the Qing Dynasty

- says an article published in the EurAsian Times.

In response to a message from the Russian diplomatic mission, Shen Shiwei, a journalist with the state-owned broadcaster CGTN, went on Twitter to remind the world that Vladivostok was once part of China. Zhang Heqing, a Chinese diplomat who had previously served at the embassy in Pakistan, also commented on this as follows: “Wasn't it Hayshenwzy in the past?”

What was happening was widely covered by Indian media. The press of this South Asian country on the eve criticized China for its tireless expansionist policies, especially after recent clashes in the bordering highlands. And now, Indian media have quickly responded to China’s new claims and insatiable appetite for foreign territories.

Wion TV announced that the PRC rejects treaties that are disadvantageous to it, and recalled the territorial disputes of the Celestial Empire with 20 (!) Countries, including Russia, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Laos, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, South and North Korea and etc.

Times Now, one of India’s largest media outlets, has also published an article on Chinese expansionism against Russia, Nepal, and Bhutan.

The Russian government did not respond to the comments of Chinese citizens, and it will be interesting to see how Moscow will ultimately react to all this.

- noted in an EurAsian Times article.

Although both countries currently maintain equal relations, in the past they clashed over territories. In 1969, the USSR and China almost entered into a full-scale war after the troops of the People’s Liberation Army ambushed Soviet border guards on Damansky Island.

Historically, the territory on which Vladivostok is located was once considered part of the possessions of the Chinese Qing Dynasty. It was annexed by the Russian Empire in 1860 after the defeat of China in the Second Opium War, where Britain and France opposed the Asian power.

    The Chinese need to be reminded more often that if it were not for the USSR-Russia, they would have been cut out by the Japanese back in the 40s. And it’s not bad to repay gratitude for your release. And dogs that bite a nursing hand are euthanized or shot.

      And who will remind? Something tells you - the current Elite is sitting tightly on the hook. Not only the West, but also China.

    China really handed over to the Russian Empire a number of territories, not in vain, but in repayment of debts to Russia, of several billion gold rubles of the time. So do not open the mouth of the Chinese to Russia! Although this is a typical situation ... Putin and the company, not out of great mind, gave up a number of territories of the Russian Federation to China, and this could not be done in any case, and having done so, they only fueled the appetites of those who dream of chopping off lands from the Russian Federation to the Urals! The famous principle of the old expression works here -

    Give a finger, so they strive to bite off a hand !!!

    Vladivostok, which was previously part of the Qing Dynasty

    I don’t understand Chinese dynasties, so sorry, data from Wikipedia.

    Great Qing Empire, or Great Qing State. The Manchu dynasty is the last empire that included the territory of China. The Qing Empire existed on Chinese lands from 1644 to 1912.

    The year 1644, of course, is strong, but I think it’s worth going a little deeper into history. Since 1234, the territory on which Vladivostok is located was included in the state, created by a prominent political figure and commander Genghis Khan. At about the same time, Moscow became part of the state, though with "excesses" like (1223 on the Kalka River), but the conversation is not about that now. In the XX century there was a restoration of the territorial integrity of the country, with which the Manchu “separatists” were forced to agree. What does the Chinese have to do with it - it’s not clear. So, excuse me, "anxious Chinese patriots," you were not here. request

    But seriously, the territories periodically depart to more powerful neighbors, so the story goes. This must be remembered and worked so as not to become a donor of the "territories".
