Asia Times: Russia and China form full-scale military alliance


Russian export of strategic products and transfer of military of technologies A full-scale alliance between Moscow and Beijing is being formed for China, the Hong Kong-based Asia Times writes.


The Russians shared information about the missile attack warning system in 2019. This coincided with the holding of the Center-2019 strategic command post exercise in Russia. The Ministry of Defense has involved 128 thousand servicemen and more than 20 thousand units of various weapons systems there. The PLA also dispatched its personnel and military equipment. The Russian military department said the maneuvers allowed them to test the combat effectiveness and increased the level of interoperability.

The transfer of the early warning system was not the only know-how that Moscow shared with Beijing. For example, in 2016, on the basis of the NRC VKS RF, joint Russian-Chinese computer exercises in the field of air defense / missile defense were held. Both countries have learned to jointly defend themselves against possible US ballistic and cruise missile attacks. In fact, Russia is providing China with exclusive technologies to counter Washington and helping to develop "retaliatory capabilities," which is a critical element in maintaining strategic balance.

In 2015, China bought from Russia the S-400 air defense missile system and the Su-35 fighters for $ 5 billion. If Beijing also buys the S-500, then Moscow, no doubt, will help with the creation of a more powerful PLA missile defense system. This is extremely important for China, given the confrontation with the United States. The Russian early warning system guarantees a retaliatory strike in the event of an attack. At the same time, if the Russian and Chinese systems are integrated into one common system, then Moscow will be able to see American missile launches even in the South Pacific, which is now problematic.

The 2017 US National Security Strategy characterizes Russia and China as "revisionist" powers, i.e. trying to prevent Washington from dominating the planet. At the same time, the Russian-Chinese alliance at the moment is not a classic military alliance and has more flexibility. There are many countries in Asia and Europe that do not share Washington's hostility towards Moscow and Beijing. In any case, the United States will not be able to destroy the alliance between Russia and China. Now there is a race for survival. Time is working for Moscow and Beijing. Washington's dominance is declining and the world is beginning to get used to the "post-American age."

    -It's already unclear ... - from whom this zealous initiative comes ... -Really ... real enemies of the people are sitting in the General Staff ...
    - And our Minister of Defense Sh-u .., due to his incompetence and unprofessionalism ... - apparently decided to instruct the Chinese to defend Russian strategic lines ... - It's like ... how to entrust a pack of hungry wolves to guard the lambs ...
    - Personally, I generally refuse to understand anything ... in this happening ...
    - Everyone here collectively sin on Serdyukov ... - But even he didn't "think of it" before ...

      Serdyukov did not think of anything. Above him was the boss who "thought" for him. The same one that Shoigu has now. So there is nothing to be surprised at.

    Russia itself, voluntarily transfers its advanced technologies and resources. In return, he receives papers. At the same time, the life of people in the same Far East is not improving.

    A traitor betrays another's secret, and a fool betrays his own.
    Traitors are more dangerous for the people, they will substitute their homeland.
    And they will not spare their people, neighbors and relatives.
    Traitors are toadstools in the clearing, but they can be distinguished on the vine .......

    Here are all the comments written here about our relationship with China, Be it politics, economics, and separately the military-industrial complex, received a lot of dislikes, and, probably, rightly so. The RSFSR, then the USSR were excellent friends with China, Chiang Kai Shi helped him to break out of the colonial dependence of Japan and the Kuomintang, and in 1949 he gained his statehood, and in this he put the USSR at the head of Joseph Vissarionovich, for which the Chinese are grateful to Stalin and idolized him for this, but when Khrushchev cheated him at the 20th Congress of the CPSU Central Committee in 1956, China broke off all friendly relations with us .... that our sworn "partners" from Washington do not like very much, and then Russia silently claims the same role that America too, like a sickle in "Faberge", so she began, and already quite a long time ago, to form her "Entente" , for a confrontation, or a war against China and Russia, and does not disdain anything, crushing the former countries of the Eastern Bloc and the republics of the former USSR, and has already picked everyone up, and now she has someone to incite against our country, and until the settlement ice Pole, Georgian, Ukrainian, Turk and other Baltic sorting. And I want to ask you all, can we stand alone against all this evil flock, when they rush to our country from all sides ???? So we now have to unite joint efforts with China against the US military expansion in our states, and your chuckles and scoffs about this are not at all appropriate.

    got a lot of dislikes, and probably deservedly so.

    You are my educated. Why is it only Russia that shares its advanced technologies with China? Does China have nothing to share? We must be honest to the end!

    -This is such a fear ...
    - But there is another fear ... - much more dangerous and much more terrible for Russia ...
    -As long as these "flocks are going to rush"; if they ever get together ... - China will already devour Russia so much from the inside that only one shell will remain from it (from us) ...
    - And China has already begun to devour Russia ... - and China does not in the least embarrass itself in these gluttonies ... - China is devouring Russia in many directions ... - in the technical, scientific, economic, "military-defensive" ... -China is simply pulling pieces out of the Russian economy. from her scientific achievements, from the field of modern military weapons, and does not give anything and does not pay for it with Russia ... - just all this is stealing from Russia and robbing Russia ...
    - Which of China's partner ... is a very deeply terrible delusion ... -Yes, China will surrender Russia at the earliest opportunity, concluding a more favorable agreement and enter any alliance against Russia; if it suits him ...
    - And China can easily find itself among the "most vicious pack-pack" that will attack our country ... - China itself would have long ago wrested many territories from Russia by the "contractual-force" method; but Russia itself presents everything to China on a silver platter ... -therefore China is still pretending to be friends with Russia ... -But soon everything may be different ...
    - And just today this danger for Russia is real as never before ... - If the Democrats come to power in the USA; then the first thing that this rabid clique will do ... is that it will conclude many treaties against Russia with China ... it may even be a temporary military alliance ... between the United States and China ...
    -No one needs Russia in this world ... -And Russia should rely only on its own forces ... -only then Russia will withstand ... -And hoping for an "alliance" with China ... is a very serious danger for Russian delusion ...

      Everything, Irina, is not quite so, China no longer has anyone to rely on in the current staggering and cracking modern world, and Russia will always agree on parity and peaceful relations with all states, but Washington will never agree to this, it must always to be at the top of Olympus.

    form a full-scale alliance

    - nonsense! Something similar was written about Turkey and Russia, and how did this PR end? The same with China, China has never been an ally of Russia and never will be. China is showing some loyalty in exchange for donated land and minerals, but this is temporary.

    This is to be expected. Even 5 years ago, China was in a much better position than Russia. China did not have as many enemies and as many threats as Russia. It would have been a very stupid decision on their part to create an alliance at the time, but now everything has changed. Currently, China and Russia have the same enemies, and in relation to both, there is a process of dehumanizing the enemy before the start of the war. The West has created the optimal conditions for a military alliance with its own hands. Upon signing this agreement, Russia should have left the CSTO and left these parasites on their own.

    Talks about a military alliance between the Russian Federation and the PRC have only one purpose - to whip up a sense of danger among the population and increase the military budget, and hence the income of weapons manufacturers.
    A full-scale military-political alliance of the Russian Federation proposed the EU and NATO to create a single space from Lisbon to Vladivostok, with a single or sectoral air defense system. The question is, why not China? For China, Russia is a temporary companion and no illusions about eternal friendship are needed. It is significant that during a friendly visit of two ships of the Chinese Navy to the Black Sea, they categorically refused to enter Sevastopol, and the PLA conducts military exercises with many countries, including the United States. The PLA contingent in the Center-2019 exercises amounted to about 2 percent (3 thousand fighters) and there is no need to engage in self-deception, this is harmful. The military philosophy of China was formulated by Sun Tzu -

    He knows how to fight who wins without a fight. He knows how to fight who captures fortresses without a siege. The one who crushes the state without an army knows how to fight.

      And who has such illusions?
