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, in general, should be grateful to the USSR for the very fact of its existence in its current form (as a socialist state). Without the USSR, there would not be such a state as the PRC on the world map! The USSR played a huge role in its formation and development, it became the first state to recognize the PRC already on the second day after its proclamation, then China was recognized by all the countries of the socialist camp. The United States, for example, recognized the PRC as a state only 2 years after its formation !!! Prior to this, the United States recognized and supported only Taiwan. Diplomatic relations between the United States and the PRC have been established since January 31, 1. In the early years of the formation of statehood, the USSR provided China with invaluable assistance in all areas: economy, politics, industry, agriculture, military construction, personnel training, health care, education, etc.

      They fought the Japanese for 8 years and unsuccessfully until China was liberated by the Soviet Red Army. After the surrender of Japan, all the weapons of the Kwantung Army were transferred to China free of charge. Also, the Russian ports of Port Arthur (Lushun) and Dalny (Dalian) were transferred free of charge.

      Now, China has grown stronger and began to show its teeth. Russia needs to be wary of its eastern neighbor. Policy towards the Muslim population of China is a special indicator of state policy. China is a country of atheists who have no faith, and therefore no religious morality, unfortunately.

    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 is, of course, strong, but I suppose it is worth delving into history a little more. Since 1234, the territory on which Vladivostok is located was included in the state created by the prominent politician and commander Genghis Khan. Around the same time, Moscow became part of the state, however, with "excesses" like (1223 on the Kalka River), but the conversation is not about that now. In the XNUMXth century, the country's territorial integrity was restored, with which the Manchu "separatists" were forced to agree. What does the Chinese have to do with it - it's not clear. So, sorry, "concerned Chinese patriots", you were not here. request

    But seriously, the territories periodically retreat to stronger neighbors, that's how the story goes. We must remember this and work so as not to become a donor of "territories".
