Putin did not rule out a military alliance with China

Speaking on Thursday October 22 at the Valdai Forum, Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke about the possibility of concluding a military alliance with China, stressing that there is no need for such an initiative yet. This is reported by the Japanese resource "Nihon Keizai".

According to experts, such words of the Russian leader can be regarded as a "test balloon" on the eve of the American presidential elections. Back in December 2019, Putin announced that the Kremlin had no intentions of concluding a military agreement with Beijing.

At this stage, we, in general, do not need a military alliance, but theoretically we do not intend to exclude it.

- said the head of the Russian state.

The President of the Russian Federation also expressed concern about new threats to the world, and one of them is the possibility of Washington deploying medium- and short-range missiles in Asia. According to international analysts, it was precisely the potential intentions of the United States to deploy its weapons in the APR and the growing distrust of the United States that forced Putin to talk about the possibility of a military alliance with the PRC.

At the same time, Vladimir Putin noted Moscow's readiness to interact with any future American president and called for the extension of the US START-3 treaty in February next year.

    ... Vladimir Putin spoke about the possibility of concluding a military alliance with China ...

    - Putin walks widely! And China will take him to its vassals and on what terms, cannon fodder or cannon fodder and a supplier of donor organs and blood for wounded Chinese soldiers?
    With Putin now only some kind of Burkino-Fasso wants to unite and then on the terms of Burkino-Fasso.
    The very old man lost the remnants of his mind from a long sitting in the bunker. Also, Hitler in the bunker, in April 45, probably dreamed about the armada of Wenck's army or the squabble between the Allies.

    Putin did not rule out a military alliance with China

    -What kind of "military union" with China is this ???
    - China has long been "covering" the lion's share of the Russian raw material economy and the Russian defense industry (judging by the supply of the latest Russian weapons and Russian technologies to China ... - for Chinese consumer goods and used Chinese construction and auto equipment) ...
    - And the "military alliance" will also add to Russia the protection of the Russian military doctrine by China and the direct subordination of our military leadership to the Chinese military ... - Otherwise, all this will lead to the creation of Chinese military bases on Russian territory ... Then Russia will "defend itself "... - immediately from everyone ...

    USA already NOBODY..the place of Americans in the trash ..
    Russia today can independently destroy at least the United States, at least China, at least Europe ...
    Therefore, Russia does not need any military UNION ..
    Glory to the Great Russia!
    Glory to the Russian Army and Navy!
